It's the Most

Genevieve, who has always been, um, emphatic in her opinions (ahem), is obsessed with Andy Williams singing "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year." It's on a mix CD of Christmas classics that we've been playing frequently in our house, and for some reason she's crazy for it. She asks for it by name by pointing at the CD player and yelling, "Most! MOST!" She gets furious if you don't put it on "repeat" in the car. Frosty the Snowman? Jingle Bells? Forget it. It's all about the "Most." This really cracks me up, especially because the song, with its blasting horns and cymbals, is, as Christopher says, "so over-the-top!" (About Andy Williams' enthusiastic, high-point ending, Christopher comments with a touch of bafflement, "he's practically yelling!")

Anyway, here it is for your listening enjoyment. Do like Genevieve, and when it ends, growl, "Most!" and then play it again. If you want to be like Julia, you then ask (every single time), "Why does Daddy say, 'that man is practically yelling!'?"

Introduce her to Andy's "He'll be comin down the chimney DOWN!".

Or Frank Sinatra's j-i-n-g-l-e bells!

What I find funniest about Vivi is that she really says something like, "Da Mohsht! Da Mohsht! I dood yike da Mohsht." It's really her approach to life.
