Starting Over

Now I know compared to some people having a 4 and 5 year old when our baby was born isn't really like starting over. But it was enough of a age gap that I had people with kids my older boys age say stuff like, "Glad its you and not me. I couldn't go back and start all over again."

But when you think about starting over witha new baby, you think about going back to diapers and sleepless nights. What hadn't occurred to me was that while my older boys have begun to appreciate some more grown up music, I'd be diving back into the good old toddler stuff. You the sort of songs that stick in your head until you literally begin to consider a labotomy as a reasonable solution?

As Bryan has been teething (or at least that's what I pray is the problem because at least that means there's a light at the end of the crabby tunnel) he is often so crabby he just doesn't know what to do with himself, or us him. But awhile ago we found a 'magic' solution. It's the most amazing thing. It's over at dailynoggin.com. We go to eth music videos and he's in heaven. We call it his "baby crack" because I swear he goes through withdrawls.
The downside however is that I have heard the songs he really likes (ie doesn't make me skip over now that he has realized that's an option he can demand) that I can NOT get these out of my head. It's like some horrible ancient torture. Songs of misfit ducks and bongo birdies are slowly driving my clinically insane.

Have an enemy you'd like to torture, or a small child you'd like to amuse? Go here and see what I'm talking about.



  1. I know what you mean about parental torture devices! Seems like kids get into something, then it needs to be repeated millions of times, eh?

    And don't you worry about the age difference... try 27 years between Itty Bit and his sis ;)

  2. Barney is our baby crack over here. Thank goodness for that psychotic purple dinosaur!

  3. I know what you mean about the torture part. I have a nine year old and he and I watch and listen to the same things but the baby is eight months and sometimes, I wish I could throw something at the TV when Noggin is on.

  4. I actually enjoy the toddler stuff more than the big boy crap (SBSP)!


Thanks for leaving me a comment!!
