  3. KathyB! Says:

    Seriously. I’m exhausted just reading about it all. I’ve been considering fostering a child and I don’t know if I’ve got the energy to play endless fill-in-the-blank!

  4. Ink Says:

    This is so cute! Thanks for commenting on my blog. We really appreciate that there are people actually reading what we have to say. Have a great day!

  7. C Says:

    hahahahaha
    I would have lost it 1/2 way through and just walked off, my patents for Old MacDonald is long gone 😉

  8. ck Says:

    I can’t believe Old MacDonald sold his farm to those greedy developers. I knew something shifty was going on in the chicken coop…

  9. tlc Says:

    Oooooooh, yeah! Sean sounds so flippin cute. I can just hear a little voice chiming in 10 seconds later with an “Oh.”
    Love it!

    Zeemaid~ Sometimes you just have to think outside the box.
    Court~ As long as I’m with the band and not in it. People pay me not to sing.
    KathyB!~ I’m sure you have energy to spare; of course, if you find that you don’t and still want that foster child, I’ll start sending you diet cokes.
    Ink~ I’ll send you directions.
    w4w~ And imagine, we didn’t even pull out the mini-pianon or the guitars.
    Jessica~ I always like reading new blogs.
    C~ Come on. Everyone has a love for the classics.
    ck~ I was shocked too.
    tlc~ He makes a great backup singer.

  11. Gibby Says:

    That is awesome! I felt like I was there listening to you guys. (Thank god I didn’t have to sing it…)

  12. faemom Says:

    Gibby, you can’t be worse than me. I make dogs and coyotes cringe.

    So funny! Driving in the car today with my three boys and Max (2) starts his rendition of Old MacDonald. It goes on for a while. The oldest (6) starts his own version, correctly might I add, and now we’ve got something of a round robin, with the baby saying No No No over and over again like some back-up singer. Fast forward about 10 minutes. We’ve all moved on to something else. I thought the farmer was dropped off back at the gas station until… Max starts up again. But this time all he sings is ee-i-ee-i…(takes a deep breath) OOOOOOOOOOOOOO! He screams the OOOOOOOOOO at the top of his lungs. TOP OF HIS LUNGS!!! It was so damn funny that Jamis and I just laughed and laughed at him. The baby started laughing because we were laughing. I fumbled around with my hands like I was looking for the video camera or the voice recorder – as if I keep those in my glove compartment. I had nothing to record the hilarity, so I called my sister instead. At least she appreciated it.

    I’m happy to see there are others out there having fun with the farmer!
