Insanity's Song

On days when I repeatedly tell my sons to put their shoes on, it’s time to go, and they give me the “make me” look, I listen to “My Name Is Jonas” from Weezer’s Blue album. The song is about a guy who’s losing it, probably from taking too many drugs. While I can’t relate to the cause of his dilemma, I sure can emphasize.

Here is my favorite verse from the song:

My name is Wepeel
I gotta box full of your toys
They're fresh out of batteries
But they're still makin' noise (makin' noise)

Battery-free toys still making noise—to me, that aptly describes a rattled mind. Plus, my sons actually have a few battery-operated toys that make noise even when I think they are turned off. Scary.

Baby girl's singing potty sometimes so be to itself at 3 am. It's a tad disturbing.

Hello again!

I know Weezer is enormously popular, (I think even an Austin band?) but I have none of their music. However, life is young and so am I to hear all the songs I've been missing. Plus, life in one on-going song, the music never ends

Do you know Mia's blog? She has an austisic son of 6 or 7(plus 2 toddlers.) She is a lovely person and writer.

Sounds perfect for those "losin' your mommy mind" days!

Relating... I wonder if there will ever be a day when I'm not picking up someone else's crap. Just one day to rest.

Music is always good medicine.

Oh yes, THAT is a great song. Weezer is excellent therapy for I'm-about-to-go-insane-get-me-out-of-here days. :)

I remember once setting off one of P's toys when she was finally sleeping. I almost threw out the window just to get it to stop.
