Crazy Lady in my Driveway

This morning I got Caden-3yr and Seth-1yr in the car, started the ignition, and went about loading up with gym bag, purse, etc.  An unfamiliar song was on the radio. I listened as I backed down the driveway. And then I had to put the car in park, fall over gasping for air onto the center console and try to keep my laughter quiet enough so that I could still hear the hysterical lyrics.  It was, for some reason, THAT funny. 

My head hurt when I finally sat up and tears were running down my face. Seth-1yr was clearly alarmed, looking back and forth between me and Caden-3yr.  Caden-3yr watched all of this from the backseat before sighing loudly and saying, "If you are DONE NOW, I think I need to get to PRESCHOOL." Long pause, and then just the word, "MOTHER."

And of course that just started me off again, much to his disgust.

It was a fantastic, if not terribly inconvenient laugh. It might work for you, too. Click here for lyrics.

I LOVE it when I get a laugh like that unexpectedly. The song didn’t do it for me, but Caden did.

Everything about this is hilarious. Those lyrics. Who writes that crap?

Somehow I’m picturing Caden in a suit with a briefcase. He’s DEDICATED to preschool, isn’t he?!

OH Thank YOU! I needed that laugh…and like Jeana mine was prompted by Caden’s comments, though the song was strangely funny as well. Breasts that can’t be confused with mountains? I mean, isn’t that what we all long for?!
