Where Has The Cool Gone?

So, I'm sitting on my couch, folding my eleven hundredth load of laundry and my daughter is at the neighbor's and Liam is napping.

I have the television on and am watching and singing along to the theme song when I realize that I have just sat through and enjoyed almost an entire episode of this program:




The trouble? My KIDS ARE NOT WATCHING with me.


This mommy is in serious need of an adult play date, don't you think? Anyone else need a little kid-free time?

You thought you were uncool...I actually sing the Backyardigans theme song and analyze it as a perfect Major Scale. How sad is that. If I were still teaching, I would use it to teach a major scale to my elementary school kids. Only a true nerd mom would have figured that out.

I actually like the Backyardigans music...

I've done similar things in the car - listening to a kids cd and realizing later that the kids weren't in the car with me.

Oh well.

My husband will listen to XM kids without the kids in the car. That's pretty pathetic and sad as well.

Dana said...

crap I hate it when that happens. LOL! I need a playdate too.

Missy said...

I do that all the time! Glad I am not the only one! I also do it in the car, when driving alone I will be halfway to my destination before I realize that I am happily humming along to "Kid Hits Volume 3". I think we're still cool. :)

I've done that, uh, more than once. I've had days when I was home alone, and Aaron would come home, look at the TV, and then ask, "Have you been watching Noggin ALL day?"

Oops. Creature of habit, I guess.
