#MirthMusicMon – Childhood and Parenting = funny?

20 Oct



I remember Saturday, a day full of sugar and laughing, and saying thank you as I opened baby shower gifts.

Sunday was something of a blur that lasted like five minutes. I had a nap… I think.

Now all of a sudden it’s Monday.

Oh, well.

Let’s make the best of it by playing with Mirth and Music Monday!  🙂

This week I found some comedy about the realities of childhood, and then some songs about parenting. Let’s see which experience makes us laugh harder.

First is childhood. At least it’s in chronological order, right?



I don’t know what it was called, but I remember after I burned a knee once one of my parents sprayed some stuff on it and I kid you not it hurt almost as much as the original burning sensation. I think we had to wash it off to make me stop making horrible noises. Youch.

And yes, I did attempt to play on a couple of playgrounds while we were living in Texas. One word: Don’t. I don’t know what brainiac decided to use little black rocks as the safety stuff at the bottom of a particular playground in Corpus Cristi, but it was impossible to even get to the slide.


Then we come to parenthood, in the form of songs. Let’s see what you think of these new versions of popular songs.



I’m not there yet, but I could see myself at least humming a couple of these in a few years. lol


What do you think? Did those paddle ball things drive you nuts every Christmas (and then the elastic string would break just as you started getting on a roll)?

Have you sung the “with or without you” song?

I am so looking forward to some horror stories, here. 😀


And that’s it for me this week. Click HERE to see who else has decided to join in on Mirth and Music Monday.
