Cameronian/ Gabriellian Idol

The kids have taken to singing at the top of their lungs at all times. It would appear that they’re training for American Idol. Cameron sings “Go” from one of the Acceleracers movies:

Tell a doctor/ tell a lawyer/ tell the mailman/ tell your mother
Gotta wake up/ gotta move out/ gotta shake up/ gotta break out
Can’t make a stand with your hands in your pockets
Something something cuz I’m faster than a rocket
Something something something
When I hit the ground I hit it running
GO GO GO GO!!!!!

And that is a direct quote. All day, every day. Gabby is more of a free spirit and coins her own lyrics:

When you do what you do-ooo-oooo
You do what you want to do-ooo-ooo
What you do, what you do, what you do, do, doooooo
Whatever you want to dooooooooo

(See a theme there?)

And Addison even takes a timeout from her busy day of searching for power outlets, climbing up onto rickety things and putting horrifying items into her mouth to chime in. She stands in the middle of the room, saying, “Hi!!!!!!” and clapping furiously until she falls down. Which, ironically, makes her not that much different from the average American Idol audience member.

By the way: Cam told me the other day that the reason he plays soccer is, in his words, “I want to be careful of my hands. Because if I’m going to be a paleontologist some day, I’m going to need my hands to be in really good condition. So I need to play a sport where I only use my feet.” I nodded very seriously and agreed with him: “You’re right, Cam. That is a very good plan.”
