Yet, I feel the need to explain.
Andrew began this spooky season terrified of skeletons. Now he is obsessed with them. Funny how that works, isn't it?
Next thing I know, Andrew is crying in the back seat.
What in the world?? I am thinking, what is this video about anyway? I quickly took it out and figured I'd check it out when I got home. Irritated that I just spent $7 bucks on it and had already opened it.
Well, the next day Andrew asked for "Elmo Count?" (I realized the pair is on the cover of this DVD). I thought, well okay, I can watch it with him now and see what all the fuss was about. It begins with Elmo visiting Count's spooky castle. One of the very first songs is a song entitled "Bones, Bones, Bones" and Count sings, and it shows a skeleton who shakes and moves around and laughs a scary laugh. I thought it could be a little scary to a little kid...I could see that.
Let's just say... a glow in the dark skeleton decoration, a pair of skeleton pajamas and two toy skeletons later...
It was the best $7 bucks I ever spent!
