Discovering Me

Me on having babies, losing babies, trying to have babies and hoping to bring this one home.

Ha Ha

My aunt has a (bad) habit of buying Gracie obnoxiously loud presents. This year's lovely is a pink Barb*ie keyboard. Yes, bad enough that we are forced to listen to a 3/4 year old banging madly on a keyboard, but it also has another feature. A sort of karaoke feature. It plays four song and has a microphone so she can sing along. And she does...LOUDLY.

No big, right?


One of the songs is a freaking Britney Spears song. "I'm not that innocent...". So, I call my aunt and tell her, yeah, thanks a lot. That slut was never to be allowed in my house and now you've brought her here.

She laughed. A lot.

But, it gets better...

Remember the "sings LOUDLY" part I mentioned? Well, Gracie doesn't really know all the words. She gets the really easy ones, but mostly you hear a lot of "nah. nuh. uh..." where the lyrics should be.

Here's the funny part.

Today I really listened to what should have been "I'm not that innocent..."

What she said was "I'm not that impotent..."

I'm still dying. Oh, my aunt is gay. Why does that make it funnier to me?

    Yep, that's an aunt/uncle gift alright. My uncle gave Aaron a Wiggles microphone one year and it was awful, I tell you! Awful! I am still reeling...

    Classic line though. Love it.

    Glad to see the move went well and that you're back! :)

    And Gracie is too cute. Even though it means you have to be tortured by Britany Spears.

    When my sister was around that age she sang a lot of early Madonna, but loooooved Time After Time by Cindy Lauper... I was 7 and even i was annoyed by her loud singing. :)

    In my house, toys like that seem to lose their batteries pretty darned quickly...

    It is an *awful* shame how those things suck up the power and die quickly (WINK WINK) lol.

    She sure did make an improvement on the song though!

    love the keyboard story. our scary gift this year was maracas: one is just a maraca, but the other one has sound effects and says about a million things in several languages. i look forward to the battery wearing out and not having a screwdriver small enough to open the battery compartment.

    hope your year is filled with love!
