We just adore Slugs & Bugs. No, not the ones that you find in the garden. The ones that you find on CD. Like Slugs & Bugs & Lullabies, or Underwhere?.
What? You've never heard of this before? Oh my...
If you have children, and you do not own these CD's, you are seriously depriving them of the hysterical, side-splitting comedy that only Randall Goodgame and Andrew Peterson can offer.
There is one (not-so-silly) song about adoption. It's really fun and upbeat, and we love the picture it gives of God adopting us into His family. The chorus is this:
"I'm adopted! I'm adopted!
Love came and found me,
Wrapped arms around me.
Love made right the wrong,
Now I know where I belong!
We noticed a few weeks ago when listening to this song in the car, JoyAnna was singing (rather jubilantly, might I add!) "I'M A DOLPHIN! I'M A DOLPHIN!..."
And that was BEFORE our trip to Sea World!
It's pretty clear adoption is a concept that is very difficult to grasp when you're 3.
Of course, at 3, the idea of being a dolphin is much easier to understand.
Here is the story of how and why the song was written:
Here is the music video for the song:
If I can ever capture JoyAnna singing her own revised chorus on video, I will have to update this blog with her very own "Unofficial Music Video".
