That'll sum it up

Instead of whining about the sort of morning I'm having, I decided to just share a snippet that might really sum up the "them vs me" theme I've got going on.

We were late for for Gymboree because I was stupid enough to pick up the phone at 10:05. While I rushed to get something completed and back to the office, Megan watched a Little People video. If you've never seen them, they tend have cutesy repetitive songs throughout them that dig deep into the recesses of your brain and refuse to get out.

As we rushed from Gymbo to preschool for pick-up, I sang the one that was rattling around my head. "Welcome home. Welcome home. Glad you're back, right on track, welcome home," over and over and over again. I was silly enough to think Meg might giggle at hearing it again as I sang to relieve the nagging repeat of it in my mind.

"Mommy, no sing," she commanded instead.

"Huh?" I said, which is par for the course this morning.

"Little People sing that," Megan informed me. "Mommy too big. No sing."

Hey Sandy, Michele says hello today :) -- I swear kids brains have that switch on it that makes them so darned smart and cute at the same time -- that comment would work really well for the karoake singer who is really bad -- we could stop him and say "Please stop" Elvis sings that, your too ....(enter adjective here) No sing LOL very cute :)

Hello! Michele sent me. Intended just to stop by but ended up reading a whole load of posts. Very nice blog. Hope you're all okay after Tasha.

I've often found myself on a hockey bench, 'scatting' the theme song from Thomas the Tank Engine myself. It's insidious, isn't it?

Here via Michele today.
