If You Want to be a Grump

There's a great song on Noggin that goes like this...

If you want to be a grump that's okay,
But could you be a grump a little further away?
It's not that I don't love you, cause you know I do,
Sometimes I'm grumpy too.

I sing along with it, and I keep singing after it's just one of those songs, you know? Sometimes I sing it to Baby m when he's crying, and E will often ask me, "What happened, mama? Why's he cryin?" So last week I told her, "He's okay. He's just in a grumpy mood." "Oh," she said, and that ended that.

Then when we were driving up North last weekend, Baby m let out a cry and M said, "Aw, what's wrong, baby?" E piped up from the back seat, "It's okay Daddy. He's a grumpy nude."

Enough said.

I need to memorize that song! The attitude thermostat in the house always is at the temperature of the grumpiest person. It seems to bring the mood down.
