Stuck in my Head

I have a song stuck in my head and it is driving me crazy. The bigger problem is that the song is on constant repeat around our house, courtesy of a very obsessed 2 year old. Owen has learned the name song and we hear him singing to himself before he falls asleep, singing in the back seat of the car, singing to Josh when he wakes up from a nap, signing in my ear at 6:30 in the morning. His favorite name, of course, is Josh:
Josh Josh bo Bosh
Me mi mo Mosh

Over the weekend he was constantly singing through the names in our family and through every friend at school. Lily, Lucy, Jake, Ellie, Diego, Dani, Lily again, Layla, Maya, Lily again:
Lily, Lily bo Bily
Me mi mo Mily

Tonight, the song reached new heights, progressing beyond names. Owen, do you want peas for dinner?
Peas, Peas bo Beas
Me mi mo Meas

Time for a bath.
Bath, bath, bo bath
Me mi mo math

Can I watch a show, show bo Bo...
This is the Newspaper, newspaper, bo bewspaper...
Is Josh eating squash, squash, bo buash...
Where's my doggie, doggie, bo boggie...

Is it driving you crazy yet? As Scott observed, it's amazing how fast something can go from cute to just plain obnoxious...
Obnoxious, obnoxious, bo boxious
Mi mi mo Moxious

Great story telling, Alissa. :-) To us outsiders not having to listen to EVERYTHING getting turned into the song, it's super cute.

I feel sorry for you at the same time that I'm laughing at your misfortune. Sorry.
