Flag Party, Part 1

July 3, 2009

How do you explain Independence Day to a two-year-old?

Mama:  “See, we live in a city called Phoenix, in a state called Arizona, in a country called the USA.  And on the 4th of July, we all have a party to say, ‘Yayyy, USA!'”

Moo:  *confused stare*

After a complicated discussion about tea, fireworks, the right to free speech and the establishment of democracy, Moo found something she could understand, namely:  Hey, that flag is pretty cool.  Let’s wave it around and dance!

So now we are having a “flag party,” and to celebrate, Moo has learned all the words to “You’re a Grand Old Flag,” which, since she can’t say her L’s yet, sounds highly inappropriate, and yet also kind of fabulous.
