Giddyup Horsey!

At a grocery store that’s close to us there is one of those old motorized horsey rides that my daughter loves. It’s the only thing that I can think of that still costs a penny.

I have no idea how old it is and I’m certain it makes no money, but even if it didn’t make Natalie exceedingly happy I’m glad it’s there. The store could use that space for advertising, a coke machine or any number of things that would generate revenue. It’s nice to see something that’s just there to make kids happy. A little ride that makes them laugh and shout and chase imaginary bandits.

My hope is we have more things like this in the world.

A Cutie and I know it

I came up with a little ditty for my daughter that I thought was pretty catchy. It is in NO way influenced by that one song by that one guy that was in that M&M commercial*

 

When I wake up I am hungry so I start to cry

I’ve got my bear, throwin cheerios in my new high chair, yeah

I’m learnin how to roll, like Tommy Pickles I’m gettin outta control

Wearin a onesie with a big red bow

with my momma I’m out the door

 

Girl look at that baby

Girl look at that baby

Girl look at that baby

I crawl around

Girl look at that baby

Girl look at that baby

Girl look at that baby

I crawl around

 

When I bounce in my spot, this is what I see

Everybodies cooing and making sounds at me

I’ve got a diaper in my pants and my bellybuttons showing

 

I’m a cutie and I know it

I’m a cutie and I know it

 

When I’m at the park, kids on the swings better be clearin off

When I’ve got my juice, The G-Mom keeps tryin to pinch my cheeks

I’m learnin how to roll, come on teddy it’s time to sleep

we headed to the crib, Daddy don’t be nervous

no security blankie, I’ll still be cozy

 

When I bounce in my spot, this is what I see

Everybodies cooing and making sounds at me

I’ve got a diaper in my pants and my bellybuttons showing

 

I’m a cutie and I know it

I’m a cutie and I know it

 

Wiggle, Wiggle, Wiggle, Wiggle, Wiggle Yeah

Do the Baby Wiggle, Yeah

Do the Baby Wiggle, Yeah

 

*Ok, Maybe a little.
