One of my dearest, closest friends has a little boy that is around the same age as Xixi. When we get together, they love to play and laugh and have a good time.
His mama, who is my siamese soul sista, says that he always asks for her, that he wonders what he is doing and when can he come over to her house?
We recently had dinner to celebrate my birthday, and Xixi was so excited to finally play with Little John. She kept telling me, "Mama, I think little John likes me!" with a little sparkle in her eye. And we all laughed.
I got a phone call from my S.S.S later on that week and she said that whenever little John heard Beyonce's "Sweet Dreams", he would sing it like this, "XIXI! Or a beautiful nightmare!"
She called him over to the phone and told him to sing it. Then I heard him belt it out, "XIXI! Or a beautiful nightmare...." There was no shame in his game.
I called Xixi over to the phone so she could hear him sing it.
You should have seen the look on her face!
She giggled for such a long time after that. Later on, after a bath and much contemplation, she explained to me, "Mama...little John must think I am beautiful. But we can't get married, cuz we're too young!"
My fave part is at 1:30, when Beyonce gets buck. Heh.
