#MirthMusicMon – How to Dad …for Toddlers!

8 May

This dad splashed onto the YouTube scene about two years ago after making a funny little how to for some guy friends. It went viral. Now, he’s something of a father hero, as he’s continuing to show how to dad with humor.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LIvZHPeYy6Q

Here’s hoping he continues through their teens. He may keep a few parents sane through the last stretch of at home parenting. πŸ˜‰

This post would have been out an hour earlier, but I followed the link from his YouTube page to his Facebook page and got stuck. lol

#MirthMusicMon – A Little One-Sided

22 May

It’s Monday, so time for Mirth and Music Monday.

Today we have a cautionary tale: What not to find in a partner. lol

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-t8aSjSS7E

It is even a relationship ifΒ  one party never acknowledges the others’ existence?

Oh, well, maybe she ends up with the other half of the ‘book-stand’. πŸ˜€ Hehehe

That’s it for this weeks edition of Mirth and Music Monday.

#MirthMusicMon – Rhett & Link and Baby Updates

9 Feb

It’s another Monday as of 20 minutes ago.

How time flies when you’re feeling disoriented.

I need to make out a to do list. It’s been several days and I still have not transferred our (correct) answers from the ‘practice’ financial aid paperwork to the ‘let’s send this out’ paperwork. Hubby left it in my trust Friday…and now it’s early, early Monday morning and I haven’t even opened the folder.

Bad girl.

But, on to something that will make us laugh and hum.

Here we go!

Today I have found a delicious combo of Rhett & Link videos. If you don’t know who they are you are missing out on some seriously off the wall, geek/nerd music and humor.

Let’s try this one:

.

Now for some music:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnzz-eFmKaw

.

Yah, only a few of those actually make my skin crawl. Mostly the gum tape, the backwards toilet paper, and the pills taken out of the blister pack out of order. Apparently I’m more of a numbers and patterns girl. Strange, considering math is my archenemy.

.

Wow. I just totally nodded off for a moment.

.

Baby Update!

(For those of you who have no idea what that means you may want to read this post as well to get the whole story.)

My baby girl is two weeks old now, and in one of the world’s foremost children’s hospitals’ Newborn Intensive Care Unit. This is where she has been since the day after her birth. This is where they diagnosed her with a small, but highly dangerous heart defect. The valve that allows blood to flow to her lungs was much too small, and the muscle of the chamber behind it (that pumped the blood through) was much too over developed in an effort to force blood through such a small opening.

They did the heart procedure a few days ago.

She is doing better this week. This morning when I got into her room she was silently crying away as the nurse changed a poopy diaper. I got her calmed down just as nurse was finishing up. The nurse turned around to deal with the dirty one and baby girl deposited more goo into the brand new one. She almost looked proud of herself. Until the nurse began changing her again, then she got really mad. lol

She was silently crying because of the intubator, which Cardiology requested she be weaned off Monday. So hopefully I will hear my baby squall the next time I witness a diaper change. That would be nice. πŸ™‚

They have taken her off morphine and only administer Atavan (another painkiller) on an as needed basis. So now she is actually looking around, trying to make eye contact. Poor thing keeps smacking herself in the head/face with the arm that is all wrapped up because of an IV. She has a very mild black eye on that side because of the bumping and rubbing. She keeps trying to get this same hand into her mouth.

That’s another thing, she is still giving the cues that she wants to nurse, so hopefully it shouldn’t be too difficult for us to start nursing when the medical staff deem it advisable. Which will hopefully be soon after the tube is out of her windpipe. I don’t know, though.

They are currently feeding her breast milk through a nasal tube, and probably an IV solution of some sort (there are so many tubes and wires it’s hard to tell. I’ll have to try and remember to ask on my next visit). I was told today…Sunday…that they will increase her feeding amount because she is tolerating my milk very well. They were originally worried about over-stressing her body by distracting her blood into spending too much time in her guts. Not sure how that would affect her breathing and heart, but whatever.

I was informed that they are lowering her prostogadin again. That’s…something to do with her heart. I think it’s the stuff keeping open the lung by-pass tube in her heart that is supposed to close after birth. But with her heart recovering nicely and her lungs doing well they are feeling more confident that she could be ready for it to close. Hopefully her body is ready for these changes. Last time they tried some of this her lungs baulked and they had to reintubate her.

The staff was rather impressed by how much of a fight she put up over the process. Of course, it doesn’t seem that they see very many full term babies there. My little stinker looks almost like a giant (6 pounds, 11 ounces at birth) compared to her two roommates.

Hopefully having the tube out of her lungs will make it easier to get her transferred from the bed into my arms. With the pumping schedule I’m on and the amount of food my body is demanding now I only have about an hour with her at a time before I have to go put more milk into bottles and then eat, again. I don’t remember how long it took to get her into my arms shortly before her surgery, but it was a process requiring three people. O.O

And before you think I’m wasting away at her bed side please know that the place where I am staying has cool arrangements with or donations from local zoos, colleges, and philanthropists for free or majorly discounted entry into some pretty amazing places. Saturday I took a few hours with another family and toured the aviary here in town. I got pictures of some royally ugly birds. And a pair each of bald and golden eagles, and some parrots, etc.

Later that evening I attended my first piano concert. He played all three parts of the Moonlight sonata.

Oh, one of the cardiologists told me to expect Little One to be here for another two to four weeks as part of her heart comes back from insane bodybuilder status and gets out of it’s own way.

.

Oops, nodded off again.

I think it’s time to wrap this thing up and get some sleep.

#MirthMusicMon – David Tennnant as Benedick

5 Jan

I love the story of Much Ado About Nothing.

Love it.

So it was with great happiness that I discovered that David Tennant and Catherine Tate had done a production of that play. I mean, really, my favorite combo of Doctor and Companion did one of my favorite Shakespeare plays. You might as well pour chocolate sauce on top and hand me a spoon. Happy!

Now all I have found so far have been clips on YouTube, but those alone kept me in stitches (mostly because I know the exact context of nearly every word in the thing).

Here for your Mirth and Music Monday amusement is a compilation video of clips from their version of this funny, deep, and sarcastic play.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgWGZbQLzB4

.

Now for another version of that song:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=479TkEj0UAA

.

I would really like to see a live production of this play. What makes me nervous is that I have not had a great experience with the cultural offerings of the nearest city. It was a great play that could have been handled 500x better. The casting alone hurt. But, that is not to say that if they had a comedy lined up for Shakespeare in the park (put on by another play company) that I wouldn’t move heaven and earth (or at least my hind quarters) to get there in time to get a decent spot. Yay, summer!

.

Now, if you would like to see more Mirth and Music Monday you can search for links on Twitter using #MirthMusicMon, or just click HERE to be taken to the linky.

That linky is where you would put your own link should you decide to play along with us on this Monday mash-up of merriment and music.

.

That’s it for me this week, folks!

Have a Great day!!!

.

.

(I have a confession to make. I equally love Amy and Rory as companions as well, but for some reason they seem…different. Separate almost. Like they created a whole other little universe within the wonderfulness that is Dr. Who and poured this delicious couple within that reality. It all makes me so happy, and at the same time so sad. Probably most peoples’ reaction to a lot of Dr. Who stuff.

*shrugs* Oh well.

#MirthMusicMon – I Have a Cold

3 Nov

Sore throat? Check

Stuffy nose? Check

Foggy head? Check

Feeling run down? Check

Yup, it’s a cold. Tis the season, I guess.

But, that just means I have a different subject for Mirth and Music Monday. πŸ˜€

(I was thinking of going with another idea, but just couldn’t find a song to go with it. Yet.)

.

For our first selection we have an amusing little number from Sesame Street:

#MirthMusicMon – Call It Steampunk

21 Sep

While wandering the wonderful world that is YouTube looking for a video for this week’s Mirth and Music Monday I came across this fascinating little ditty:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFCuE5rHbPA

.

I love that not only does he poke fun at what is wrong with so many attempts at steampunk he takes time to actually explain what steampunk is so it’s easier to get it right.

Here’s the link to his YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/Pikedevant

I like the steampunk world. One day I hope to have several nice, authentic looking, late 1800’s dresses to accessorize to my heart’s content. Until then I will continue to bask in the fun that is a giant game of what-if.

Speaking of if…

I’m Hungry – a Poem

12 Sep

“I’m hungry”

She always seems to say.

“I’m hungry”

Can be heard throughout the day.

Grapes and cheese

Peanut butter on toast

Pork and beans

Sunday roast

There’s no escape

You know it’s coming

Her mouth agape

The words are forming

.

“I’m hungry!”

.

#MirthMusicMon – Songs of the Farmer

10 Aug

This past week or two it is very obvious that I live in an agricultural area.

Grain is being harvested, straw and hay are being baled, and the onions are getting their pre-harvest attention. There is a ton of dust in the air.

I’m not complaining, though.

Even though I have never participated in the farming process I love to watch the fields change through the year. It makes me happy to see winter wheat sprouting in the early spring and drive past rows of ripening corn in the summer.

That is probably why I love these songs so much.Β  πŸ™‚

#MirthMusicMon – Dangerous Green Things

4 Aug

This week I am just going to jump straight into it. I need to get to bed so I’m ready for a drive to the ‘big city’ for my 16 week prenatal checkup. Thankfully my sister (who will be my coach) is doing the driving, so I just have to handle my tummy for another long afternoon away from the house.

.

First off we have a short little video that had me laughing way too hard when my dad showed it to me years ago.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLP4QkflB-o

.

And since I have recently learned that Godzilla is celebrating his/her/its 70th birthday this year:

#MirthMusicMon – Funny Mom Parodies

27 Jul

This has been an interesting day.

We woke up to a power blip that somehow knocked out internet out. We managed to get it fixed just in time for me to start work on Mirth and Music Monday. Whew!

Also, this has not been a good day, uh, morning sickness wise. On the up side, I don’t think my abs have ever been this solid. πŸ™‚

Enough about me, it’s time for the fun stuff.

.

This first one is a mom parody of Let It Go (like you aren’t all more than a little tired of that tune), but it’s a good one. Honest.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqqlylre2BU

.

The next one is a mom parody of Footloose (the song, not the entire movie).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTBdOgsYdjM
