Like A Record Baby

Mean Mr. Mustard asked me this morning what I had been up to this weekend, and I replied that it was pretty relaxed. I forgot to add that I spent upwards of 40 minutes or more spinning Eryn around in an office chair, first one way, then the other. I'm going to be in big trouble when she's old enough to go to Valleyfair, because I was getting sick just watching her. At least she was a little queasy spinning when she was on her stomach, so there's hope that I'll be able to avoid the truly gut-churning rides.

For the first several spins, she had me singing You Spin Me Round as I spun and unspun her. I won't subject you to that, and it's just not the same when you can't see me sitting in the background with a purple vellure shirt, eyepatch and teased 80's hair. But after I was done singing, she took the song and made up her own song to almost the same tune...something about Berry Berry Boat Baby. Almost as catchy.

Conner and I went on the teacups at Como and I nearly lost it. Dan has been able to spin Conner round and round for quite long durations, I say he gets nominated to be the one that takes the kids on the spinning rides. Another option, Sandy has admitted to me that she likes those rides....we could christen her an honorary aunt.....

Dang... I'm embarrassed to say that not only do I remember that song, but I used to really like it.
