If I Had a Hammy

Andrew's favorite toy for the past few months has been this hammer. Or hammy, as he pronounces it. And I absolutely cannot stop myself from breaking into, "If I had a hammy...," almost every time I see him with it.

If I Had a Hammer is a song, most famously performed by Peter, Paul and Mary. The first part of the song goes like this:

"If I had a hammer
I'd hammer in the morning
I'd hammer in the evening
All over this land
I'd hammer out danger
I'd hammer out a warning
I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters
All over this land"

And while I sing it, I imagine how Andrew gets up early in the morning and likes to play, and how he doesn't always want to go to sleep at bedtime in the evening. I imagine him hammering things all over the living room. I imagine him going after me with the hammer, or Valerie. Then I imagine he and Valerie getting along, playing nicely together.

It's my own private music video. Much cuter than this one (no offense, P, P and M). After all, mine has a hammy.


  1. I love it! Used to listen to P P and M all the time when I was a little kiddy... ;)

  2. Dear Sarah,
    You never cease to amaze me with your talents. Your creativity shines so brightly! I think we should get to know each other better. There is so much more I could say. . . .

  3. :) What a perfect smile for this rainy Wednesday morning! Thanks!
