Hoss has a fantastic memory and he soaks up information like a sponge. He remembers the words to songs, lines from shows and movies and every book he ever hears.  He is definitely an audio learner. Sometimes he gets a word or two wrong.  Perhaps it’s his hearing loss. Perhaps he just inherited his mama’s gene for not being able to correctly hear the lyrics to a song. Either way, it provides some pretty funny moments. Those of you who follow me on Facebook may remember some of his Christmas Song lyric misunderstandings from this past year…Feliz LaDeDa, Scooby Doin’ Alright, Silas Night and of course the reindeer Vixen who he renamed Fix-it.

Of course he’s known his animal sounds for years, but he’s recently added more terminology.  For example he now ‘whinnies’ like a horse, ‘caws’ like a crow, ‘clucks’ like a chicken and, most recently he ‘prays’ like a donkey. Now the first time we heard him say he was going to ‘pray’ like a donkey, Boom started to correct him; to tell him donkey’s BRAY, not PRAY. However, Hoss quickly proceeded to demonstrate how a donkey prays. He in no way is being disrespectful or sacrilegious.  In his little mind, if the sound a donkey makes is called ‘praying’, then this must be what it means. I threatened Boom within an inch of his life if he corrected Hoss before I got it on video. I will miss these precious and hilarious misunderstandings!!

I present to you, especially those of you familiar with braying or praying, Hoss demonstrating a Donkey ‘praying’.
