Why I married him

So E has taken over bedtime duties for Adler the past few weeks and was complaining that he didn't know any of the songs I sang him before bed. So he decided he needed to come up with some of his own. After some research on the internet, E came to me with the lyrics printed out of the songs he was going to start singing him. They included the following:

theme songs for:

Darkwing Duck
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (original)
Tale Spin
Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers
Scooby Doo (original)
Gummi Bears
Tiny Toons

These were cartoons that I believe came out when we were like 14, but are some of his "childhood" favorites. He just doesn't get why any 14 year old would rather watch "Saved By the Bell" and "Hang Time" rather than a cartoon based on tiny jumping gummi bears. And truthfully, I still catch him watching them on the Cartoon Network sometimes. He is excited for the time when Ad gets old enough to watch them with him; but I fear major disappointment ahead for him because I just don't think kids are watching Tale Spin anymore.

That's just plain great! He took the time and effort just to look up the words instead of singing "silent night" 15 times in a row. Ha!! ;o) Hope all is well.

OK, seriously, do I need to drive my ass to Vicksburg, take pictures of your children, and blog them for you? Because I so will. That picture you put up of Adler recently- wow. It had been so long since I'd seen a picture of him I was like, "Who is that kid?"

Tell Eric I said "Hey" back.
