Distracted Driving

Who needs talk radio when you are serenaded by the screechingly soft whispers of angels while you drive?


For those of you who are thinking, "Oh, those sweet babies!" let me just inform you that this was the quietest portion of this monotonous harmony performace...and it droned on for the last ten minutes of our ride home. They only paused when we pulled into the driveway and I started recording for posterity's sake. I hope they have fun viewing this video at their 16th birthday parties.

At one point, I considered pulling over so I could stuff Starbucks napkins in my ears because the decibels had reached levels that only dolphins (and I) could hear.

The clincher is that the more agitated I became, and the louder I turned the talk radio up, the more joy they found in torturing me. I'm so glad they didn't discover this new game on the 5 hour drive to Nannie's house. I would have had to stop and take a bus.

I couldn't text while driving if I wanted to because one hand is on the wheel and the other is busy taking turns plugging one ear or the other. This takes distracted driving to a whole new level.

My boys drive me crazy in my car sometimes too....but not with singing! They love to argue about silly stuff like what color the car in front of us is or whether we just passed McDonalds or Wendys!

Funny, funny. And I was in fact thinking "Oh, those sweet babies." But I know it can be pretty wearing when you're actually the one in the front seat. . . .

That is cute, but I could see how if it were louder and carried on for as long as it did, it would make you crazy. My son will sing in either the highest pitch voice or a really deep voice. The high pitch makes me cringe and the deep voice cracks me up every time.

So funny!!!! They're so sweet, but I know what ya mean. My "L"'s incessant giggling drives me NUTS sometimes and my "E" sings like that too. UGH! We should market some special mom earplugs or something!

Amanda, that was a very cute video. I have one of my daughter singing "Party in the USA" and seeing your video made me want to post it on my blog too.
