Special Past Family Moments.

Ya know. My family sings an awful lot for a family that includes me, someone who cannot carry a tune in a bucket... haha!

Which brings me to the next story...

My wonderful and oh so goofy family!

I am one of four children. Life was hectic. Especially when it was time for us to actually go somewhere, all six of us. {My parents did not divorce until I was 16 years old.} When one of us was running a bit behind, yes it was usually me..., the tune would break out and it would certainly motivate you to get your butt moving!

"Here we sit like birds in the wilderness, birds in the wilderness, birds in the wilderness. Here we sit like birds in the wilderness waiting on _________ to hurry up. Waiting on __________ to hurry up."

And you repeat. And repeat. And repeat some more. Heck. You repeat until the person gets their butt there! This little tune would certainly get annoying and sometimes pissed off _______ , the person being waited on.

Yet it is these otherwise stupid memories I have of my family that I love and hope to pass along to our children... The quirky-ness that comes in being in a family that enjoys life!
