Movie Monday

On our second trip to Russia, Anton had a book that played a song with his name in Russian. We thought it was so cute but we didn't realize it is a famous Russian nursery rhyme. Once we got home with Anton several people sent us the link to "Anton's" song on Youtube and we normally listen to it at least once a day. Kenya, Judah, and Anton all love this song!

Here is Anton dancing to and singing his song.

Here is a video of Kenya singing Anton's song to him during dressing change.

Here is his song if you want to hear the whole thing and see the cute little story.

BTW, what if you try- Judah will sing "tili-tili" , Kenya "trali-vali", Anton "Param-pam-pam ", could be fun:)

Vanessa, may i show you one more "Antons-song" ? :)
Short pre-story. From my easy hand now many Antons friends call him - Cheburasha:) "Hi, Angie! how is our sweet Cheburasha doing? Any news? What can i do for him?" - i had a ton of these letters in my mail.
Cheburashka is a very beloved in Russia cartoon character , a symbol of absolute cutiness. Just take a look - little pretty face , big eyes , charming funny ears, gentle voice. Anton!))
So, here is this song. In english , original- in russian, also some info and cartoons. Hope you and kids will enjoy!
PS/ I won't be never tired to thank for love and care, you give to precious Antosha- cheburasha:)
