The Aforementioned W
Cryptic enough for ya? Well, read on, dear people.
For Bean's birthday, I had ordered her the most recent They Might Be Giants CD, for kids, entitled "Here Come the ABCs". We had heard a few of these tunes on the Disney channel after The Wiggles et al, and as die hard TMBG fans, we *had* to have this. Well, I was not disappointed. Popped it into the car changer this morning and I'm still singing snippets at 8:30 tonight. AND we only got through half the CD. There's more! It is just a terrific combination of quirk, intelligence, decent tunes and frankly, education. I mean, a kids' album that utilizes the word "aforementioned"? I don't think *I* have a CD that uses ten dollar words like that.
This is definitely, DEFINITELY a CD that will take up permanent residence in my car, aka The Mommy Mobile. Does it drive Mom crazy after fourteen thousand renditions? No it does not. Go forth and buy it for the closest little one in your life. Hell, buy it for yourself and listen to it with the shades drawn if you're embarrassed. But give the two Johns your money.
