Chubby Little Snowman — Recited by Olivia, Age 3

by Janice

Olivia came home from preschool reciting this poem, Chubby Little Snowman. (I am assuming that is what it is called. I had never heard it before.)

So I grabbed the video camera and Olivia was thrilled to capture herself, in all her three year old cuteness. (She gets a bit dsitracted by her own reflection in the mirror on the wall in the middle of the poem.)

Indulge me in my mommy-pride… Here is Olivia and the Chubby Little Snowman.

Do you ever post videos of your kids on You Tube or on your blog?

I love the ‘let me see!’ at the end. So familiar from my own kids.

My son’s 2nd birthday party is favourite video around here. He loves to watch it over and over again, singing along and pretending to blow out the candles. You can see it here:

How cute is that! I remember my oldest reciting that poem with her kindergarten class so many years ago…I always liked that one. :)

One of my big girls was thoughtful enough to grab the camera when my 1-year old started dancing in the kitchen. (And yes, that’s my son saying “let me see” in the background, ha ha!)

Awww – you gotta love babies first dances! :)

Trying to record with little ones around is so hard – they always want to either “see” or “let me do it” but they can’t hold the camera well enough to actually record what we want to see! lol

You should see how many “movies” of my son’s feet I’ve found on my camera that he’s taken when I wasn’t looking! LOL

So totally cute.. I love how the hands start clapping during the dance, plus the butt wiggling is too cute to handle.

My 3.5 yr old Olivia came home & recited that one 2 weeks ago – It’s so cute – I had never heard it before, either! There is a line where my Olivia says and what do you suppose- cracks me up every time!

This is just so adorable. I, too, love how she wants to see it as soon as she is done.
My kids are all grown up and there really wasn’t blogging and YouTube wasn’t that popular when they were little… Oh, how old do I sound???
Heading over to look at some of the other videos.

We have quite a few home videos in our collection that end with “let me see!” ;)

Olivia is SO CUTE!

Here’s a post of my 7yo daughter playing the violin. The best part is her excitement at the end.
