As I said earlier, now that we have kids, breaking into song is a somewhat regular occurance in our lives.
My husband recalls this story. He was in the locker room with our toddler after we took the guys swimming. A very demure older man who had been swimming laps had just finished showering and sat down on a bench in just his towel.
As my husband digs out some clothes for our kiddo, he hears a familiar little voice.
“OH! You better watch out, you better not cry…”
Looks up to see naked little boy standing on the bench singing to the old man –
“Santa Clause is coming to town!”
“He sees you when you’re sleeping!”
Dancing a little jig –
“He knows when you’re awake!”
And singing his little heart out to the white-haired gentleman.
“He know if you’ve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake!”
And the older man began cracking up, laughing his head off with tears coming down this cheeks, thanks to the impromptu, au naturel performance by our three-year-old.
