Skipito Friskito (clap, clap)

Ainsley is a passionate reader. Which, is interesting because she can't yet read. This doesn't stop her, though.

Lately, her preferred bedtime book is "Skippyjon Jones." And while its hard to read aloud, it is quite the enjoyable story. Skippyjon imagines himself a Chihuahua, joining a band of banditos south of the border. Skippyjon sings the following:

"My name is Skipito Friskito. (clap, clap)
I fear not a single bandito (clap, clap)
My mood is so mellow
I'm sweet like the Jell-O
I get the job done yes indeedo. (clap, clap)"*

Ainsley memorizes every book we read her, and this is no exception. For the past few days she's been entertaining us by reciting:

"My name is Skipito Friskito.
I fear not a single bambito
My mellow's so mellow
I'm sweet like the Jell-O
I get the job nice-indito."

Somedays I wish my mellow was so mellow.

*Skippyjon Jones by Judy Schachner

Even though you write wonderfully, this does not give this story justice. Ainsley actually saying it is probably the funniest thing I have ever heard.
