Kids are obnoxious. It’s not their fault, obnoxious is a developmental stage.
But there is nothing (NOTHING!) that raises their obnoxiousness to new levels like when my kids have a song stuck in their heads. Repetition does not faze kids. Things do not stop being funny. They are relentless.
I respond with my parental repertoire of encouragement, redirection, bribes, threat, and (finally) either hysterical laughter or tears.
Then, once they finally stop, I come face to face with the horrible truth that these songs are now stuck in my head … for forever.
So, in order to share the misery serve as a warning to all parents, I present you with the top two songs my kids have been torturing me with lately.
Peanut butter and jelly anyone?
How about a little circus afro?
The only solution is to fight fire with fire.
Oh yeah kid? I see your Circus Afro and I raise you a Mahna Mahna.
What songs have your kids been torturing you with lately? Parents of older kids, does it ever stop?
