I said SHUSH girl!

There are three girls in our family *myself not included* that chatter endlessly. There are rare moments of silence through the giggles and nonsense. 3Oh3! sings a song called, 'Don't Trust Me' and it's been hitting the air waves rather frequently as of late. There are time when I want to bust out these lyrics on our little chatty patties but as a mother desperately seeking to set an example, I wouldn't pull such a stunt. They can talk their little hearts out all they want!

Unfortunately the kids have caught the lyrics in this song;

Shush girl, shut your lips
Do the Helen Keller
And talk with your hips

Ellie has commented that the boy singing this song is naughty and should not be 'shushing' anybody! That's my girl!!!! Kayla on the other hand has inadvertently replaced 'Helen Keller' with 'Hokey Pokey' and it's pretty giggle inducing!

At any rate, it's made me much more mindful of what is playing in the car. They do pick up everything and they do process matter how much they are chattering away at the time. They don't miss a beat and it's a strong reminder how how I want to live my that theirs is the best it can be.

On the B Side: Ellie can bust through The Yeah Yeah Yeah's 'Zero' anytime she wants! She's got all the lyrics down and that is our theme for the summer. Thanks Shell! xoxo

I love the normalcy amidst all the drama. Life goes on doesn't it!?! Do the hokey pokey and talk with your hips makes much more sense anyway. :D
