shake it like

"shake it, shake, shake it, shake it, shake, shake it, shake it, shake, shake it, shake it like a Polaroid picture."
sean has 2 jobs.
brennan is talking.
max laughed for the first time today.
she has her daddy's smile.
i have fresh veg and fruit in my fridge.
we bought life insurance this morning.
i felt like i was playing the game of "life."
filling my van with little pegs.
except i don't have the van yet.
but i wish i did.
b/c right now i only have room for kids and strollers.
so when the "shake it like a Polaroid picture" song from my college years in rexburg came on in the car today, i turned up the volume and told brennan to shake it.
i can still picture my roommate melissa dancin' her heart out to that song blaring in our kitchen.
brennan shook his head back and forth and opened his mouth really wide.
gosh, i'll bet he won't even get that line in the song when he's bigger.
who didn't love Polaroid pictures.
no one, i say.
except maybe my parents b/c i'll bet the film was mucho bucko.
my sister got a Polaroid camera for christmas or her birthday one year.
it was really cool.
i think i heard they don't even make them anymore.
i also think my parents may have known what they were talking about when i was a teenager.
just saying.
i love it when life is soooo good that sleeps sounds like a waste.
shake it
shake
shake it
shake it
shake
shake it
shake it
shake
shake it
shake it like a Polaroid picture...

"life is so good that sleep sounds like a waste." That is a BEAUTIFUL expression and will go in my gem box.

I heard that song all through my trip to Europe, especially since MTV was one of the three channels we were able to watch! Love that Brennan loves it!

BTW, when you can get your van, I recommend the Sienna. LOVE IT!

You have such a talent with your words. I love how you state things. And what fun it is to dance in the car with the little ones.
Yay for 2 jobs! I mean yay that you can stay home with the kids, sorry that you will never see your husband. The sacrifices we make for those little ones, hu? Worth every one.
