Song Inspiration: The Edamame Cheer

We went out for dinner the other night and when the server brought a plate of edamame to our table Owen’s face lit up with a huge grin and he called out “edamame” and clapped his hands in delight. He then gobbled down the edamame one after another practically non-stop. He has always liked edamame but the day I gave him a little pile of full pods instead of shelling the beans for him, well that day edamame shot way up to the top of the list of his favorite foods.

Inspired by the excitement he showed over the edamame I made up a little song. We sing it at dinner sometimes especially when we are having…EDAMAME!

Owen loves edamame!

The Edamame Cheer

I love edamame
Edamame is yummy, yummy for my tummy
I love edamame
Edamame is yummy, yummy for my tummy

When the plate is put down in front of me
I clap my hands, I cheer in delight
Let’s count it down, so happy that it’s time to eat
3, 2, 1
Edamame! All Right!
