These 29 seconds reveal many things about my life:
- Ethan loves dancing. If he hears music anywhere, he'll get up and bob up and down.
- Tyler is bizarrely in love with this song 48 Roses by a band called Mariachi el Bronx. I heard a news story on NPR about them, and I'm probably botching the details, but they were/are a punk band called The Bronx (I think). Somehow they had to appear at an "unplugged" event and they thought it was lame, so they dressed up like a mariachi band and did their music mariachi style. They liked it so much, that they got way into it and created an alter-ego band. Now that I've listened to the song 3 or 50 times, I like it too.
- Notice how he stops dancing mid-way and starts crying. He makes that noise all. day. long.
- Also notice how he comes over to maul me. He must be touching me at all times. Sometimes, I can distract him and sneak away for a few minutes, but, if I walk back into his line of sight, it's all over. I'm not sure why he's so crabby. I'm hoping that his new-found walking skills will increase his autonomy and decrease his need to have his face plastered to mine.
