The JCB Song

Well, I’m rumblin’ in this JCB.
I’m 5 years old and my dad’s a giant sitting beside me.
And the engine rattles my bum like berserk
While we’re singin’ , ‘Don’t forget your shovel if you want to go to work!’

My dad’s probably had a bloody hard day
But he’s been good fun and bubblin’ and jokin’ away
And the procession of cars stuck behind
are gettin’ all impatient and angry, but we dont mind.

An’ we’re holdin’ up the bypass
woah
Me and my dad havin’ a top laugh
oh-woah

I’m sittin’ on the toolbox
woah
And I’m so glad I’m not in school, boss
So glad I’m not in school

Oh no

and we pull over to let cars past
And pull off again, speedin’ by the summer green grass
And we’re like giants up here in our big yellow digger
Like zoids, or transformers, or maybe even bigger

And I wanna transform into a Tyrannosaurus Rex!
And eat up all the bullies and the teachers and their pets
And I’ll tell all my mates that my dad’s B.A. Baracus
Only with a JCB and Bruce Lee’s nunchuckas

And We’re holdin’ up the bypass
Woah

Me and my dad havin’ a top laugh
Oh whoa

I’m sittin’ on the toolbox
Oh
And I’m so glad I’m not in school, boss
So glad I’m not in school

And we’re holdin’ up the bypass
Oh

Me and my dad havin’ a top laugh
Oh whoa
I’m sittin’ on the toolbox
Oh

And I’m so glad I’m not in school, boss
So glad I’m not in school

Said I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee. Drives me round in his JCB.
I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee. Drives me round in his JCB.
I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee. Drives me round in his JCB.
I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee. Drives me round

And we’re holdin’ up the bypass
Whoa-Oh

Me and my dad havin’ a top laugh
Oh-whoa
And I’m sittin’ on the toolbox
oh-oh

And I’m so glad I’m not in school, boss
So glad I’m not in school

I said

I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee. Drives me round in his JCB.
I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee. Drives me round in his
Aw, I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee. Drives me round in his JCB.
I’m Luke, I’m five, and my dad’s Bruce Lee. Drives me round in his JCB.

Luke and Joy’s friend Madeleine celebrated her 3rd birthday today and she invited them to a picnic party in the gazebo with her brother Will, sister Elizabeth, Mommy, Daddy, Grandmother and Granddad. Mummy was their too. The weather wasn’t very nice but that didn’t matter. There was great food and big balloons which are always fun in gale force winds.

Wow, Luke and Joy had a busy day today! Mommy’s been sick but woke up this morning feeling much better. That meant she had to get crackin’ on her presentation for Monday’s BIG meeting with a BIG client! So daddy took Luke and Joy to breakfast at Shipyard Galley and then off we went to Parlow Farms to see farmer Rockwell and pick up our veggies. We took a little spin around Marion and stopped briefly at daddy’s friends, the Barry’s. A little wiffle ball in Shipyard Park, followed by a nap and we were ready to go to Family Fun Day at the Casino where we ran into all kinds of friends including Brendan and May Kate. There was a Nemo water slide, which Luke enjoyed and Joy didn’t, and lots of other fun games.

The kid band Blackout pleased the crowd with a couple of sets.

Tonite, Secret played in the gazebo and Luke “stayed up later” with daddy, 9:00 pm , the end of the concert. It was a cool, crystal clear night and Daddy and Luke scouted the sky for falling stars. Daddy also taught Luke about the Big Dipper and how to find the North Star.

All in all, today was a great adventure!

It’s a big today as cousin Matthew is visiting from England. Last time we saw him he was Baby Matthew, but not any longer. Matthew and his cousins splashed and stomped around all day together and got along famously. At dinnertime Joy introduced Matthew to Boston baked beans and Crazy Bug pasta. What a treat!

Race to the Finish Line

Luke and Joy braved the rain to ride their trikes in the Pan Massachusetts Challenge. https://kids.pmc.org/kids2006/Default.asp. This event raised money for The Jimmy Fund. Luke started out a bit wobbly but was breaking the speed limited after a few rounds. Joy nearly learned to pedal, but still prefers to be pushed!

Luke and Joy at Nanna's

It’s been a tough week for the MattapoisettMellos. Despite being pretty sick Mummy had a business trip on Monday and Tuesday. Daddy took Luke and Joy to Nanna’s house for dinner on Tuesday and Luke ended up staying over. Wednesday morning Luke had a bit of a relapse and then Joy got sick too. Mummy came home and hasn’t been able to shake her cough. Daddy’s standing by to get sick any day now. 😦

Joy and Ian flying

The weekend ended on a highnote when Luke and Joy’s friend Ian called this morning. He brought his mom and dad over this afternoon and everyone had a great time catching up.

Mummy cooked a delicious roast beef and the Red Sox ice cream and M&M cookies were a hit for dessert.

It was great to see Luke feeling better today since he was out of commission yesterday. He even missed swimming! But Joy didn’t. She actually swam “all by self” for the first time.
