Musical Monday

Music is a pretty important part of our lives here; it’s what brings us together before bed while we sing along to Papa Bear’s guitar playing. It’s how we clean the house. It’s how we measure time (let’s clean your room in just one song okay?). It’s how we handle car rides (6 songs, one news break and a commercial block to dance class). We have songs that mark milestones in our past, and some we’ve tucked away for future events. It’s what makes us smile on the inside.

I know right? Some may think there’s a deeper meaning to these kinds of coincidences, but I can’t seem to figure one out, other than the notion that a thrift shop could be in his immediate future (no surprises there).

This little gem down below was my personal fav; it is the coolest one so far, but it contains the most profanity. Let’s over look it just this once shall we? So pull on your grownup socks, and send the kids to feed the chickens; it’ll probably only get them outta the room long enough for those of you who don’t actually have any chickens, and you may need to deal with their disappointment later, but here goes…
