yes... yes there is... of course.
but babies love repetition... love it, live for it, thrive with it. and whoever is in the Jolly Jumper predictably starts to jump with a purpose as soon as the first song plays.
so I play that cd every single day (yes I know, I might possibly be the last person on earth who buys actual CDs instead of frequenting itunes), usually multiple times and I have to say that I've had it with Bram... especially this song... it gets stuck in my head and haunts me and I rush to the remote every time I hear it coming to skip it... but often I have a baby in my arms or are otherwise preoccupied so I don't get there in time (the song is 45 seconds... of pure torture).
they are getting to me you see... this CD makes me disappointed in myself. There is this wonderful song (it actually is wonderful, I am not being sarcastic) that reminds you that you can do most anything that means enough to you. This song inevitably makes me think about people asking their children what they would like to be when they grow up and then fast forwarding to what they actually end up doing. I can't remember what I wanted to do when I grew up to be honest, but I can say with confidence that it sure wasn't what I was doing.
don't be mistaken. I am by no means unhappy with my current life. I love raising our children.
but one day I am pretty sure that I will want more. And I just won't accept that doing what I was doing is it for me. Of course I still don't know what I want to do but that's a minor detail... right?
so this is what my life has become... I now ponder the deeper meaning of children's songs...
and if you've made it this far in this post about sharon, lois and bram... I will now award you with this awesome picture... of a thinking cat.
