We Heart The Kaiser Chiefs!

Not that I expect anyone to have missed me, but I haven't had much chance to post lately. Due to the seasonality of my work, I've been working full-time this month. After this week, I will (hopefully!) drop back to my usual three days per week. I've missed having my days at home with the kids, but I am extremely thankful for my job and the flexibility my company gives me.

I will have a lot of blogging to catch up on in October!

In the meantime, you should really check out the song "Ruby" by the Kaiser Chiefs (http://www.myspace.com/kaiserchiefs) if you don't already know it. If you know my husband (and to some extent me), you can guess that until we fall on desperate Screaming-Baby times, we're not going to listen to children's music in the car. This may be selfishness on our part, but our children haven't yet come to the realization that KidSongs and Baby Einstein CDs will even work in the car. "Ruby" has been Will's favorite song for some time, although it was recently unseated by "Down The Road I Go" by Dierks Bentley. (Will's tastes are pretty eclectic.) We've gotten a lot of laughs listening to Will sing "Ruby" on roadtrips. Here is the chorus:

Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ahhhhh
Do you, do you, do you,
Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ahhhhh
Know what you're doin', doin' to me
Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ahhhhh
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ahhhhh

Now, out of the blue, Sophie began singing the chorus this week. All we have to say is "Ruby, Ruby, Ruby..." and she takes over with the "Ahs!"

British Progressive Punk is fun for the whole family!

Of course your absence was noticed, but work is work...and it is good to see you back! I am sure we speak for most when we say that we LOVE reading your posts! We were laughing when we read the lyrics and singing along in our heads. I can't believe little Soph is singing along too. We miss you guys and hope everything continues to go good!

Take heart October is coming soon! I imagine it will be nice to breath again!

I have missed you a lot lately! I tried calling around Soph's birthday but never caught you guys, and I know you are really busy with company and work, so alas...maybe one day we will catch up! Molly

I have been missing your hilarious posts. Hope work slows down soon so you can entertain your audience again.
