"I Need Something I Can Shake My Money Maker To!"*

In an effort to get Sam to quit screaming hysterically loudly protesting the injustice of his Cinderella-esque existence and start helping clean up the kitchen last night, I said,
"Sammy, whatever you do, do NOT shake your booty to this song while you wipe off the table."
I then proceeded to wash the dishes while shaking my money-maker to the beat of "It Must Be Love" by Madness.  (Playing loudly on the computer in the other room.)

Well, of course Mommy using the word "booty" snapped Sam right out of his funk and within moments three boys were dancing and booty shakin' around the kitchen with cleaning implements.

Doug just looked on with equal parts smug "I-told-you-they-got-their-lame-moves-from-you" dismay and amusement.

Hey, whatever works, right?


Need something to shake your booty to?  I really don't think this is the best collection, but it got us moving last night!
Here are the songs so far on a just started/still in the works/woefully incomplete "E's Favorites" playlist:

Blackbird - Sarah McLachlan - I Am Sam Soundtrack
It Must Be Love - Madness - Divine Madness (Reminds me of Carlsbad)
We Close Our Eyes - Oingo Boingo - 20th Cntry Mstrs - The Mill. Coll.: The Best of O. B.
Your Smiling Face - James Taylor - The Best Of
Eres Tu - Mocedades - Tommy Boy Soundtrack  (Oh, how I love this song!  Reminds me of Anna, Wes Larson, and the drive from Provo to Springville.)
Just Like Heaven - The Cure - Galore (The Singles 1987-1997)
Boys Don't Cry - The Cure - Staring At The Sea: The Singles 1979-1985  (Reminds me of Ang)

*A favorite "Glee" quote.  Unfortunately I had to stop watching Glee due to too much S.E.X.ual content.  :(  Cryin' shame 'cause that show is hilarious.
