Thump… Thump… One step, two step. Thre… Crash. The last one is not to be.

Tempers rise as frustration hails. I can only imagine what must be going through their minds right now. Everyone is doing it so why can’t they.

They look at each other. Almost like a silent “I got this”. Slowly they rise one by one. Unsteady on their feet, determination is the order of the day. The cycle starts again.

Thump… Thump… One step, two step. Thre… Cra… Nope, we’re going for Three step, four step. Crash!

The wails start in tandem.

“Oh, Danny Boy
Danny Boy

I get knocked down
But I get up again
You’re never gonna keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You’re never gonna keep me down”

I sing and cheer throwing them way off course. They stop crying and look at their crazy aunt. It could be the fact that I’m tone deaf or that they’re wondering which circus lost their monkey. Whatever it is, it worked.

My nephews are learning to walk!

Determined now more than ever, they get up again. Ain’t no one gonna keep them down.

I can only imagine a few years from now kids be going “Chumba-Wha…?” And the twinzels be like “Chumbawamba! Duh…”

And that folk, is also how we teach kids songs of days gone by šŸ™‚

This was part of a Tandem blog between 2 amazing bloggers and I. As always, thank you for reading and please go check out Chevone from Chevs Life and Shelley from The Deal Is posts of this week.
