So Bad, So So Bad

Against my better judgement, I taught Levi how to sing "Call Me Maybe."  Don't worry, it's just the chorus, and, in all fairness, I had originally changed the words...
My name is Levi, and I am crazy
But you're my mommy, and I'm your baby 
Then, as to completely confuse my son, one day I started singing the normal words, and he caught on.  And really, how silly and adorable is it for a two year old to say, "here's my number!"


(Video here if the embedded one doesn't work.)

Tonight during bed time tucking in, I kissed him on the forehead and we had our usual exchange.

Me: "Goodnight Levi.  I love you so much."
Levi: "I love mommy."
And as I stood up, he said, "So bad."

"So bad?" I asked.  Then I realized he wanted me to sing the bridge of "Call Me Maybe."

With tears in my eyes, a heart so full of love for my son, realizing just how "lucky" I am (on St. Patrick's Day), I kneeled by his bed, looked squarely into his eyes, and stroking his hair I sang,
 Before I met you, I missed you so bad, so bad, so so bad.
Who knew Carly Rae Jepsen could be so touching?
