The weather was beautiful and sunny except for a few errant rain clouds. I love it when it rains when it is sunny outside. Just a quirk of mine. One the way home we passed under one of these little black rain clouds and LaLa asked if it was going to rain all day. I told her "No I think we are just underneath a little black rain cloud." Then she got really excited.
"Like Winnie the Pooh!"
"Yep like Winnie the Pooh!" I was actually shocked she remembered the little black rain cloud story from Winnie the Pooh.
Then she started singing the song:
"I'm just a little black rain cloudhovering under the honey tree..."
I got a good laugh. I then I asked "What happened after Pooh was hovering under the honey tree?"
"He got bees in his mouth!"
"He got chased by the bees! Then his balloon got popped! Then the bees chased his some more and he had to hide under the umbrella with Christopher Robin in the mud puddle!"
I was just having such a good time listening to her explain the story to me. It made the drive back to the house a lot more enjoyable than if the girls had been fighting in the back seat as usual. I remember loving the tale of "Pooh and the Honey Tree" when I was a kid and I am glad that this love is shared by my girls.
