What's Going To Happen
Good to Be Four
Parents must help their children develop into the best people
that they can be.  At home this often requires a balance between
letting children enjoy the playful energy that comes naturally with
asking children to take on increasing responsibility as they grow
up.  

And often with the best intentions, children find ways to have fun
when they work.  Standing back and watching is a fun part about
being a parent.  It's important to give each child room to express
his or her own personality even when doing mundane tasks.  I
sometimes have to suppress the urge to correct a child and just
wait for him or her to fail or succeed.  

Observing the process of children growing up gives me endless
ideas for song and story writing.
What's Going To Happen by Tim Seston

Didi drives a dump truck to the dining room
Where he picks up a pile of plates
His brother backs up a brand new blue back hoe
While their parents sit by and wait

What’s going to happen?  Will they make it to the sink?
What do you think that the neighbors would say?
What’s going to happen?  What do you all think,
About mixing up work and play?

Charlie chugs along in a choo-choo train
Grabs the glasses, gets a grand high five
From Finn who is flying with a fast jet plane
While cleaning up the forks and knives

What’s going to happen?  Will they make it to the sink?
What do you think that the neighbors would say?
What’s going to happen?  What do you all think,
About mixing up work and play?

Sometimes it all ends in a great big mess
With food flung around on the ground
But mostly it ends with some great big smiles
Having fun while you work makes the world go round.

What’s going to happen?  Will they make it to the sink?
Don’t you worry what the neighbors would say.
What’s going to happen?  What do you all think,
About mixing up work and play?
