Behold the power of cheese

I somehow turned off comments on the last post until faithful reader (and questioner) Eric pointed it out at about noon today. So please return to yesterday and submit your nominations in our two categories.

For now I will just point out that the first song I mentioned came up on the CD again today while Cady Gray and I were returning from an afternoon-long birthday party and Starbucks outing. (Why don't four-year-olds have their birthday parties at Starbucks? That would have saved me a trip.) I began belting out the chorus and grooving insofar as safe driving would allow. With no prompting, Cady Gray starting singing along from the back seat, as if compelled by a Jose Feliciano tractor beam. And when I looked in the review mirror, she was doing a passable imitation of Mom's driving boogie.

The power cannot be denied. What moves you this season?

A few years ago around Christmastime, my older sister and I found ourselves driving from New Orleans to Atlanta, and we'd put the rental car radio on scan until it hit "Feliz Navidad," and stop and listen to it every time.

Either version of "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)."

I'm catching up on your posts.

Over-caffinated 4-yr-olds sugared up on birthday cake? Be careful what you wish for.
