Mommy's Juice!: Lose the Shiny Nose!

Lose the Shiny Nose!

It's official, Jingle Bells is now permanently stuck in my head!  I literally can not get that tune to stop playing over and over.  At work, at lunch, in bed, all I hear is "dancing through the snow," in the voice of Michael Buble.  This has to be some form of torture.  Some punishment for one of those all-night ragers in college or the time I locked myself in my room for a time out instead of the kids.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Christmas carols.  I can frequently be seen driving down the road belting "Oh, Holy Night" at the top of my lungs as if in front of a crowd at Rockefeller Center.  I have a stash of like six Christmas CDs in the car that literally just sit there eleven months out of the year, waiting for the day after Thanksgiving to arrive so they can start spinning again (wait, do CDs spin?).

This year I started with the Michael Buble CD, singing away to track 1, "It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas," with my boys in the back seat wondering what exactly was in mommy's coffee that morning.  Then came track 2, "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town."  Mommy is on a roll now!  Now on to track 3, and the fun continues with "Jingle Bells!"  On to track.. wait, what was that from the backseat?  Oh, you want Jingle Bells again?  Okay, why not!  One more time boys!!

And then....
"Really, again?"
"Another time?"

And so my drive time has now turned in to Jingle Bell time.  Over and over and over.  I tried to sneak in a little "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" last night only to be told to lose the shiny nose and get back to the bells.

Hence, the reason I am sitting at my desk listening to absolutely anything but Christmas music in the hopes that some chord might strike me enough to loose the incessant jingling in my ears!!  Happy Holidays!


  1. I will never forget the redundant call from my children to replay that one special tune over, and over, and over again. Thank heavens, this soon passes and they are onto music such as scream-o, rap, dub-step and the like! I'd really just like to poke my eyes out! ;) btw...I love Michael Buble!

  2. Guess the great thing about carols´ that they come around only once I year. I love them. Must confess that I am a X-mas fan!!! See you around

  3. Haha I guess this is what I have to look forward to! Fortunately right now, my little has to sit contently and listen to the Christmas songs that I want to listen to. I'm sure that won't be the case next year!

    Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend :)

  4. It's funny when the kids want to hear a song over and over, but it does get old quick. :)

    As for the Christmas carols: My husband tells them the radio broke. It's a classic. Dads come up with some stuff sometimes.

  6. I love listening to Christmas songs but I get teary eyed. Okay, I sometimes cry! Because it reminds me of my sisters and how it's much more fun to celebrate the holidays with them in New Jersey. Oh Holy Night never fails to make me tear up. Especially Celine Dion's version.

  7. Loving your blog style and can't wait to read more! Following you from Thumping Thursday hop.

  10. I seem to have Yo Gabba Gabba songs in my head pretty much 24/7 now. I've been trying to listen to my Christmas Pandora station at work to get some diversity up in there!
