Spring forward and fall back and little lambs eat ivy. A kid’ll eat ivy, too. Wouldn’t you?

During the sleep deprivation experiment I mistook my stomach growl for an outdoor animal fight. I smiled at the television for nearly thirty minutes before realizing that I was watching a documentary about Richard Nixon. (Also, I prayed that Harper will not follow in Meredith’s footsteps by deciding to complete a project on sleep that involves me NOT sleeping.)

I’m dragging a bit today.

ANNOUNCEMENT: During the Republican debate a few nights back, I was able to do this:


(I couldn’t do that four weeks ago. Currently, I can’t bend over from a standing (legs far apart) position and touch the top of my head to the floor. I’ll be working on that. Also, I haven’t been very successful when it comes to cleaning my shower. I’ll work on that, too.)

This morning Harper made a PowerPoint presentation. Here is a highlight:


It made me laugh like Seth Rogen for thirty seconds.

Oh! I’ll probably draw the names for the essential oils on Tuesday, so you still have time to comment! Click here to go there!

  1. Oh mah gah! I was born in 78 but my mom was born in 38 (quite the stretch in those days). Anyway, on my Fisher Price record player, along with many, many storybook records, she gave me a few of her old folk or otherwise more-kid-oriented records. Among them: Mairzy Doats! I have never known anyone else who knew of this. I thought you had to be born before 1950. Since I had such old parents for a 1978-born-childhood, I just thought that was an extra generation removed :-D

  2. I also sing this from time to time. My mom is from St Louis, so it could be kind of a regional thing EXCEPT I’m pretty sure my dad was the one who sang it to me…

  3. I was born in 55 and have have known this song as long as I can remember. I think we had it on a record as a kid. Pretty sure it was quite a popular song in its time. I’m sure I’ve sung it to my kids, but I think I’ll ask them if it’s familiar now.

    Hope you’ve got caught up on your sleep.

  4. I was born in 1952 and my mom taught me this song. I’d never heard the real one though. Thanks for that.
