Just wondering if anyone has any idea when the songs that echo in my mind all day will be actual grown up songs again?

Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

I wander around all day singing things like this...

"Oh, Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun...Please shine down on meeeeeeeeeeeee."

"If you like to talk to tomatoes...."

"I'm gonna color my world Crayola..."

"God's green earth is not just green, so many colors in between."

I was just thinking about this as I was humming "Winnie The Pooh" to myself while washing the dishes this morning. I used to hum along to my own favorite songs, and they're still in there somewhere, but they are definitely buried under a tremendous pile of kiddie faves. I can't remember the last time they surfaced for a little humming along time.

One of the cd's I don't mind having invade my memory are these great Bible song cd's. (We have both of them, but I prefer Vol. 2, if that review means anything to you.) My kids love them and I'll tell ya - I now have several verses swimming around my head during the day, which is never a bad thing. It's also fun to hear Mitchell randomly singing the songs, knowing that he has just tucked some very powerful words into his heart and mind. Many days, those are actually the cd's he chooses for car rides and quiet time in his room. They have even edged out The Wiggles!

In closing, I will throw a word of thankfulness out there that my children are not obsessed with the Doodlebops. I think that one might send me careening over Sanity Ridge.

I am SO with you here! There are some days that I just can't get the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme song out of my head at all.

I try to put on my iPod in my kitchen stereo each morning while I'm getting breakfast for the boys. I love starting the day with Praise and Worship music. By the time I'm preparing them lunch, I'm bopping around the kitchen to 80's music!!! :)

I'll be the first one to sign up for your Give Away! Hmmm, that may not work to my advantage? I may have to sign up a few times to have better odds! :-)

And thank you, now I have "Oh, Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun...Please shine down on meeeeeeeeeeeee."
I'm guessing when we finally have grown up songs in our heads, they'll be very outdated. We'll be watching our generations equivilant of The Lawrence Welk Show.
