Who is skinny?

Not me. Since I am a Mom to a newborn I have decided that sleep deprivation is a good enough reason not to exercise yet. Please don't get me wrong - I do consider strolling around the neighborhood, carrying two kids up the stairs many times a day, changing an average of 15 diapers a day, etc. all exercise. It just isn't the type of exercise I need to burn off this extra baby weight. I keep telling myself that the time after giving birth should be the new definition of "babymoon". While I think the new addition into 2007's Webster's Dictionary of "babymoon" is quite important I still think I prefer my definition better.

It would read something like this:

babymoon: the time immediately after which you have given birth but before you starve yourself to try to fit your moon (bum) into the designer jeans you once owned, in other words, the time immediately following child birth when you believe nursing is a good enough reason not to diet and enjoying every minute of your scone each morning instead.

Okay, so back to my question, who is skinny? (Boy, it is quite easy to get off topic isn't it???) I am talking about the Skinny Marinky Dinky Doo! Anyone know who skinny is? Skinny Marinky is the catchy preschool rhyme (yes, DS and I have graduated from nursery rhymes to preschool rhymes). This catchy preschool ryhme even has this hop-hop loving Mommy (me) humming her way to sleep each night (um, humming during her sleepless nights is more like it).

So, I looked it up (gotta love Google!). It is from a Canadian children's television show "Sharon, Lois & Bram's Elephant Show".

The show is no longer is on TV but I am not going to hold it against the Canadian's for no longer producing the wonderful TV show since the new Canadian television series "Super Why" is DS's favorite show on television!!!

If you aren't quite sure what song I am talking about link here to hear Skinny Marinky Dinky Doo . It is Track #7 and #25. And hey, not feeling like such an old housewife now. If you notice, I found the song and lyrics on WooHoo! Or does that just mean that is for *old* housewives now?! Ugh, can't seem to keep up with these kids now-a-days!

So if you take the time to link to the Silly Songs Album Track please tell me which Preschool rhyme is your favorite? Do your ears hang low? There's a hole in the bucket? Awwwwwwwwww, the joys of Motherhood and I thought crazy lyrics were no longer in my life when I stopped going to the clubs! LOL!!!
