Monday Miles: My Favorite Things

The hills are aliiive…with the sound of my mom doing her best Julie Andrews impersonation.  Oh, did you think I was going to say Carrie Underwood?  NO.  That was a travesty, and we will not acknowledge NBC’s attempt to recreate the magic of Broadway on live television.  Just air the original movie, network executives.  That’s what 95% of the viewing population remembers, anyway.

Also, heads up to Hoda and Kathie Lee…we didn’t need an entire week of viewing clips from “live” rehearsals shoved into the fourth hour of Today.  My mom says the Fourth Hour is for wine, fashion, wine, cooking segments, wine and make-overs.  Also, Kathie Lee’s knock-knock jokes and making fun of Carson Daly.

I digress.  In the spirit of Ms. Andrews, and with inspiration from not Carrie Underwood, I have compiled a list of my own personal favorite things.  Actually, a song.  And yes, I am fully aware of my “baby genius” status.

To the tune of, “My Favorite Things”:

Waking up early and banging on my crib,
Lasagna mud mask while taking off my bib.
Finding that blanket with delicious strings,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Unplugging cords from electrical outlets,
Peeing mid-diaper change; mommy sings, “NOT YET!”
Beating that toy ‘til it no longer dings,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Chasing the cat since his tail is delicious.
Refusing that broccoli, it looks quite suspicious.
Hiding my mommy’s wedding rings…
These are a few of my favorite things.

Chewing the corners off all of my new books,
Pulling the shower curtain off of the hooks.
Jumping off toys like my legs are springs,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Trying to stand up while I’m in the bathtub,
Leaving my trucks out so dad gets a toe-stub.
Throwing my chicken toy; HEY, he has WINGS!
These are a few of my favorite things.

Stashing my binkies underneath the carseat,
Tasting the kibble that I see the dog eat.
Ruling the house because I am the KING,
These are a few of my favorite things.

When it’s naptime,
And the phone rings…
It can make me mad.
But then I remember my favorite things,
And then I don’t feel so baaad!

Twirling in open meadows is one of Julie's favorite things.

Happy Monday,
