Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale…..

Aaj6Da7F8MSTQ3ODL_YX5hAaHPXGI loved the TV show Gilligan’s Island.  I’m not sure if this show was available around the world, but it certainly was a hit in the United States.  The theme song was pretty catchy, and for some reason it popped into my head today.  I found myself singing my own lyrics based on the crazy week I’ve been having with my kids.  So today’s post won’t be so serious but it it may make you laugh with or at me.  Either one works!  Life is too short and laughter is my favorite!

Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale
a tale of a fateful trip,
that started from this rockin bod,
that’s now as large as a ship.

The mate was a mighty working man,
the wife brave and sure,
three passengers, he wanted four
and she said no more.
and she said no more.

In school it started getting rough,
the skinny jeans were tossed.
If not for the courage of mom and dad
the kids would be lost.
the kids would be lost.

The kids run us all around each day,
to sports, and clubs and scouts,
with Mommabear,
the husband too,
The teenager, and some strife,
the honor star,
the youngest one, and  two dogs…WHAM!
here on family island.

(Ending verse)
So this is the tale of our family,
Kids stay for a long long time,
We’ll have to make the best of things,
it’s an uphill climb.

The first mate and his wife too,
will do their very best,
to make the others comfortable
in a one-day empty nest.

No phone! no TV!  no video games!
do your homework please,
like my mother before me,
I am going to count to three.

So join us here each week my friends,
You’re sure to get a smile,
From members of your own family,

It’s all really worthwhile!
