Well, the singing bug has officially bitten all of the Schmitty Kids. Not only am I being serenaded by W., but T. and R. have also found their voices.
And yes, apparently being vocally challenged is a genetic disorder.
Now that our Christmas tree is up and the house is adorned with holiday decorations, the kids have been bopping around the house, full of seasonal spirit. No matter what they are doing, the three of them can be heard caroling.
The problem is; they really and TRULY need to learn the words to the songs.
Take for instance the following:
T.: "Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle All The Waaaaaaay!"
R.: "'Ho has fun as she rides!"
What?! Who's a 'ho?!
And does anyone know this little ditty?
W.: "Deck the halls with BELLS of holly!"
W.: "Oh! Deck the halls with BALLS of holly!"
Hee hee, he said BALLS. (Sorry, me being 12, AGAIN!)
But can you guess what is the ONE song they get completely right?
All Three Schmitty Kids:
"Jingle Bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg, the Bat Mobile lost a wheel, and the Joker got away - Hey!"
And my girl? My sweet little R.? She has even gone as far as putting her own spin on it.
"Jingle Bells, W. smells, T. laid and egg, the minivan lost a wheel, and Ruby got away - Hey!"
She's brilliant, I tell you.....BRILLIANT!
