5. Hearing Damage - Thom Yorke (from New Moon) "Your mind is restless/You say you're getting better, but you don't feel any better"
6. Tire Swing - Kimya Dawson (from Juno)
7. Uprising - Muse (from V trailer) Monkey's favorite song. I love hearing words like "interchanging" and "victorious" from a two year old.
8. Waterslide - The Bonedaddys (from I Love You, Man) Since Monkey's song is on here, Goose's has to be on here too. She like to make up her own topical lyrics to this tune as a sort of social commentary.
9. On the Cliff By the Sea - Ponyo If you don't speak Japanese, don't bother. The kids love this song and Ziggy can make up words that make me laugh so hard I'm seconds from peeing my pants.
10. Oh, Sookie - Snoop Dogg (inspired by True Blood This might be the most hilarious fan song I've ever heard. Sam Trammell said Snoop calling him a "bitch" was one of the highlights of his career.
It makes me sick. I don't like losing money. I don't like the prospect of losing money. And yet I'm apparently a pretty good gambler. Ziggy made me sit at a table with him and He went up ten and I went up forty.
Let's just hope that he keeps on that track...
Vacation is great otherwise. I'll post pics later!
Goose and Monkey just finished swim lessons through our local community pool.
If your child is still in that "mommy and me" phase, then suit up and be ready for high school locker room flashbacks!
If not, count yourself lucky and try not to make too much fun of those of us on the sidelines trying to look like we've been to the gym in the last five years...
Here's a list of tips for surviving the pool:
1. Hold on to your kids at all times; this ensures not only that they won't be jumping into the pool unsupervised, but also that you can put the kibosh on your daughter's smack talk as she talks about how much better she is at swimming than another's 18 month old.
2. Get to know the teacher. Make sure that this high-schooler understands your child's enthusiasm and is fully prepared for the jump that will end in crown-to-nose contact.
3. Aerosol sunscreen may make sense if your child is all over the place, but as families walk through your coconut reeking fog, know that they are cursing you, especially for those of us with asthma prone children. Rather put it on when they're strapped to their carseats and have no escape...
4. Don't let your kids drink the water. It's gross.
5. Lastly, try to have fun. You're going to be in a thousand pictures because everybody who's anybody takes pictures of their kids in the pool and the last thing you want is to look like you hate what you're doing.
