It's up there with realising that you're still watching Giggle and Hoot but the baby is asleep and the toddler is at day care.
I've always had a song stuck in my head. Usually it's a half written one that won't leave me alone until I finish it or at least write it down. Since I've had children it's a little bit different. Now it's either various Play School tunes or really catchy half written children's songs that won't leave me alone.
Today I am HOME ALONE.
I'll just let you ponder that for a moment.
I KNOW. ALONE.
I've been playing catch up with sewing, and have had the grand event of starting AND finishing a project in the same hour. Oh my goodness!
But there is a dark side to this joy that is Parental Alone Time.
It's the children's songs stuck in my freakin' head.
I happened to catch myself watching Giggle and Hoot's 'Gigglearium' this morning after everyone had gone out (oops) and now I can't stop singing 'Singing Solo'...
There's also usually a few varieties of Justine Clarke's greatest hits, including 'Dinosaur Roar' and 'Jelly Jelly Jelly'. It's a good thing I think she's ace.
I'd love to sing cool indie songs in my head, so I could seem cool and indie... but the truth is I'm just a country folk loving nerd who makes up songs about bicycles to make her gorgeous girls smile.
