So You Acknowledge That Your Dancing Skills Are Pitiful, Coming Soon to ABC

Lumpyhead orders us around a lot, and like suckers, we often obey his commands.

This morning he was playing with Bump's Fathers Day card (are your kids as sucked in by the musical greeting cards as mine are? Damn) when he commanded "Papa sing the words."

Lumpyhead and Lula usually dance to this card - an awesome blend of jumping and writhing - so Bump and I started wriggling as Bump sang.

This apparently displeased His Majesty - he had ordered singing, after all, not dancing - so Lumpyhead yelled "No! Mama and Papa you can NOT dance."

"You're tellin' me, Buddy," Bump responded, as we both continued to flop around like fish gasping for oxygen.

I don't think Lumpyhead got the joke.

Those damn kids don't have any idea how hilarious we are.

So true, Sarah.

And those cards... Raisin wants to open every one at Target, which now that I think about it IS better than if we actually had them in our house....

I think we could have used a YouTube video for this one -- hasn't Lula mastered this yet?

Kids - they act like we're their slaves or somethin'
