Tick Tock

On Monday, it snowed. Big, fat flakes. Nothing stuck...but still. What do you think - we live in Wisconsin or something?

So, I declared Monday afternoon to be "official sloth afternoon." I *finally* let the kids watch the Harry Potter Puppet Pals You Tube video that they've been clamoring to see. (Did you know they are the only two people in the entire world whose parents wouldn't let them watch it?) The snow wore down all my resolve. So we watched.

And watched and watched and watched. I swear we watched it 20 times. That thing is hilarious. No wonder all the 8 year olds are recommending it.

I'm justifying exposing my children to a pipe bomb reference with the fact that I grew up watching Tom & Jerry, The Road Runner and Benny Hill. They got nothin' on an imaginary pipe bomb blowing up puppets.

Snape. Snape. Severus Snape. Dumbledore! (I dare you to watch the video as many times as we did and not spend the rest of the week singing that damn song...)

Ah, I love the internets.

I'm such a bad Mommy. Several times a week (usually around 6:30pm when there's still another hour until Daddy gets home and I'm losing my mind) we'll watch all kinds of silly stuff on YouTube.

Search for the Gummy Bear Song. Talk about annoying ear worms!
