Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

Listening to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra

Mommy: Who can name a wind instrument?
Cracker: Trombone!
Olive: Tuba!
Daddy: Whoopee cushion!

Thank You, Weird Al Yankovic

Me: Good morning, Olive!
Olive: (giggling) I'm about to get medieval on your hiney!"
Me:
Husband: She just said...
Me: Oh I heard her.

Turns out she had no idea what a "hiney" is, but she does know all the lyrics to this:



She sang it all the way home for my dad today. To quote him directly, "Damn, she can be a lot of fun when she's not doing time in the naughty nicho." True dat.

We all agree, it's a nice change after a two year obsession (shared by her brother) with alternate lyrics, supplied by their father, to Cake's "Never There"

You never wear, your underwear!
You never, ever wear your underwear!
Dun dun dun dun dun dun HEY!


Yeah. Awesome when they break out in song at a restaurant.

Or that Sublime song she and her brother swear has a reference to male genitalia. (It does not!) Or that James' "Laid" is currently getting heavy play on satellite radio and the baby is in luv. Eeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeee!

I can't wait until she discovers her new favorite Pink song unbleeped in my workout mix.

Homework, Fourth Grade Style

You hide your homework folder because...yeah.

You hide your agenda so you can argue that you can't do your homework because you don't have the assignments written down.

You hide you English and math book because you need them to get your homework done.

You even hide your completed/ready to turn in homework because you hope that it will keep the next assignment from being assigned.

You got us on this one: we don't know why you don't turn in test corrections.  Enlighten us?

(PS  It's time for a new hiding place.  I found behind-the-curtains-in-the-baby's-room the Friday before Thanksgiving.  Good one!  I do thank you though because knowing where to go has made my life a little easier these last few weeks.)
