Blood..and how it works in our bodies.
Because it my children's newest fascination, and its actually quite cool.
A while back The Boy came across a picture of a cell in one of The Mans school books. He wanted to know what that "doughnut shaped thing" was. So, we had a short conversation as to what a blood cell was, what kinds there were and what they do for the body.
I thought he and I had a great time together, me teaching..him learning. What a great and smart mom I am.
And then The Man one-uped me.
He came across this little ditty and the kids can't get enough of it. I swear one afternoon Little girl watched it ten times in a row before I got sooooo sick of it and told her that mommy had had enough for one day.
If you are into blood and "They Might Be Giants" ( one of my fav bands in my earlier years..and probably still today..) then you will LOVE this:
(press pause on my music player first!)
There are actually two versions. The other one was made by a kid named Dave logan while he was a senior in high school back in 2005. Its a little more mature and not so " kid-ish" but my children LOVE it just as much. I hope you enjoy either version, and maybe even learn a little something while watching them! ;-)
Try not to sing the catchy tune all day though... ;-)
