I remember back when I was in 6th grade I was in the Swing Choir.
It was kind of a jazzed up concert choir. We got to sing all of
the ‘cool’ songs. I remember one song we sang was Barry Manilow’s
Copacabana. That was my favorite. And, I remember the Christmas
concerts we did too. We sang real live traditional Christmas
Son #2 borrowed son #4's Cool
New hat for the concert
Fast forward (a long ways) to today. I left early from work to go
see son #2’s “Celebration around the world concert.” They sang
celebration songs from Ireland, China, Saudi Arabia, Africa,
Israel, Barbados and finally Christmas songs from the United
States. I’m wondering, don’t elementary schools do just a plane
old Christmas concert? I guess I could jump into a tirade about
political correctness, but that’s not what we’re here for. Don’t
get me wrong, Son #2 did a wonderful job singing a solo about
Kenya’s Jamhuri day, and did a great limbo dance move
(pics on the blog site). But, I still miss the good old Rudolph
and Frosty songs of my childhood.

Reader Comment Section:
I sent messages to yahoo expressing my displeasure at loosing my
wake up joke Emails. No response from them but it made me feel
[and a couple of comments from Monday I failed to add]
Did you watch the PICC-line removal? I was present (and
restraining her) when Paige got hers out. I couldn't watch. I did
glance at it in the garbage can, but that was the closest I got.
Nasty, nasty and amazing thing.
[Considering I made the dentist give me a mirror so I could watch
them remove all 4 of my wisdom teeth, I think it would have been
cool to watch. But, I was at work...]
I think your blog ate my comment. I tried to say yesterday a
THANKS for letting me know about Songs of Love...Genna's came on
Monday, after a hideously long clinic day. I cried reading the
lyrics...silly, but true. When Genna heard it, she got all big
eyed, covered her mouth and said, "Do we get to keep it?" I figure
since there's no huge market for songs about Genna Camiolo who
loves Zoom, muenster cheese, pizza with Grandma, and Hello Kitty,
she could probably keep it... so thanks--I only applied for it
because of how you wrote about [son #4’s] enthusiasm for his. And
now my 3 year old goes around the house singing "Gen-na Camiolo,
Gen-na Camiolo" over and over.
[It really is a cool thing they do. Glad you could get one!]
