Look What I Found In My History Notes!

It's Monday. Clean-up-after-the-weekend day. Vacuum- straighten- tidy- pick up- laundry-day; toilet-scrubbing, rubbish-binning, cat-litter-changing, lists-for-the-week-making day.

Slight diversion from the riveting morning in the boondocks routine provided by the bird in the garage trying to commit hari-kari on the window. Finally manoeuvered him out the door. Hope he has enough brain cells left to find worms for his dinner....

Back to the riveting stuff. Yawn.

Aha! The accumulation of various parts of last week's papers, derisively referred to as MB's History Notes. Among which pile I found an article that led me to this u-tube clip. I hope you find it as hilarious as I did! And speaking of moms, if you haven't visited Lily [of Not In Your Ear fame] at her new digs, stop in and see her today. Your funny bone will thank you!

I'm not quite sure how MB's history notes led you there but glad it did. My favourite line is don't make me come down there. I'm very fond of the don't make me.. line of nagging too

How did she managed to find that much breath to sing that? So recognisable to every mum! Thanks for posting 'Out Stealing Horses' got it and am reading it now and enjoying it greatly.

She does it so cheerfully, too!

It does make me wonder, though. When kids hear things spewed over and over again, does it just come part of the background noise? Do they even listen?

Yes, it's amazing, isn't it?

Lordy, Molly. How do you do all that in one day?! Back in the day when I was "organized", I could only manage one task a day - dusting, vacuuming, bathrooms, laundry, baking each got their own day and then I had the weekends to do kid stuff and extra projects. Shopping happened every day. You never cease to amaze me!
Love the YouTube. I've said all of that, wish I had thought to sing it!

Apparently you can buy it on itunes - pop it into your child's ipod, play it on endless loop and remain silent for the rest of the day.
