Aunting Report! Guess What is the ONLY Song that Will Calm This Child Down and Make Him Laugh?

Happy Tuesday! MommySister and Daddy might be coming home from the hospital today with Baby Brother! False alarms Thursday evening and Saturday morning which meant Auntie caring for confused Nephew A. Also, Nephew A got a 24 hour bug and threw up over everything on Friday. I had to throw away my dress. And then the real alarm started Saturday afternoon and I have been solo caring for a small human being since then. Well, the nanny was here for a few hours yesterday so I was able to wash my hair (HEAVEN!), but mostly solo. Once Mommy and Daddy and Baby Brother are home, it will get easier, right? Because babies make everything better?

Songs to Make You Feel Warm and Cozy

In Chicago right now it is just cold enough to be chilly inside (even with long pants and shirt), but not chilly enough that the landlord legally has to turn on the radiators. Or in other words, “that time of year when you check the city codes to find out if your landlord legally has to turn on the heat yet and are disappointed to learn he doesn’t”. Anyway, instead of putting on a sweater, or having hot tea, or moving away from the windows, I am going to write this post. Because those other things are just too much work.

Karan Johar Week: Let’s Rank Karan Johar Songs!

Woo-hoo! Karan Johar songs! The perfect happy escape. And not an over-whelming number of them either, so I think we can rank them all, don’t you? Especially because I am removing My Name is Khan since I don’t like throwing something that real in with the other stuff, feels disrespectful to victims of hate crimes, you know? So, Karan Johar songs, but with MNIK removed!

Happy April Fools! Songs in Which the Hero Plays the Fool

I love these songs! It’s not that the hero is foolish, it’s that he is trying to cheer up the people around him (love interest, small children, etc.) by ACTING foolish. Like a court jester. Which is a movie that is now on Prime by the way, and you should all watch it and share it with your children. For Happiness.
