the things we do to get kids to eat (and laugh)
So I was watching the nine hundredth repeat of the premiere of Girlicious on Much Music. I know. Does the world really need Girlicious? I don't think so, but what do I know? Anyways, during the fifty million commercial breaks, they aired the American Idol video game commercial about 10 million times. In the commercial they sing along to Fergie's hit Glamorous, and it got stuck in my head.

Fast forward about an hour later and I can't stop singing just that part, of just that song. The portion that they sing in the commercial is the following:


We flying first class
Up in the sky
Poppin' champagne
Livin' my life

Well, I was feeding Jakob lunch and trying to get him to eat his veggies when all he wanted were the toast, cheese and orange waiting for him. Suddenly puree of brussels sprouts was not so interesting. What do I do to get him to eat? Start singing of course! What did I end up singing to him?


It's flying first class
into your mouth
They're from Brussels
and they're sprouts

Hey- stop laughing- it worked!

p.s. I don't know if Brussels Sprouts are actually from Brussels but it worked for the song. :)

    Hey, whatever works! I know someone who uses the Amy Winehouse song about rehab, but instead replaces rehab with bed to sing to her toddler. :)
