My parents are still on their trip, making their way up the California coast. Tonight they're in Eureka. Every time I hear them say that I have to start singing, a la The Backyardigans. Sing it with me....scroll down and click on track 7. Has there ever been a better kids' show? I just love the Backyardigans. I never get tired of hearing them talk and sing.

Eureka! Eureka,
When you find-a what you seek-a
Eureka, Eureka
Everybody shout
Eureka, eureka, eureka, eureka!

Eureka! Eureka,
It's a word from ancient Greek-a
Eureka, eureka
Everybody shout

It's the best dang word
Eureka Eureka
That we have ever heard
Eureka Eureka
When you're just about to freak-a
shout it out,

It's a scientist's delight
And we do pronounce it right
when you take-a that first peek-a
shout it out, Eureka!

Eureka! Eureka,
We'll sing this song a week-a
Eureka, eureka
Everybody shout

Eureka! Eureka,
From the top of the highest peak-a
Eureka, eureka
Everybody shout

It's the perfect thing to shout
when you're diggin' treasure out
when you find-a what you seek-a
shout it out eureka

It's the word you'll hear us shriek
when we find the the bones we seek
When you take-a that first peek-a
It is time to shout Eureka!
It is time to shout Eureka!
It is time to shout Eureka!

Wonderpets is a close second. And how much do I adore hearing my husband say, "This is sewious."

On my moments home with J during this whole hospital stay, the Backyardigans and Wonder Pets are what saved my sanity. J and I would come home and cuddle on the couch and watch them together. And when asked what he wanted to get Dada as a get-well present, he insisted on Pablo. (I think he might have known that it'd end up being his.)

Ohhh, funny...something only parents would understand! After a trip to Target, Eric came home and said he overheard a dad singing, "What's it gonna take...teamwork!" And I don't know how many times after I'm up with Caden nursing, I can't get back to bed because I have one of those songs in my head...hee, hee:)

I live near Eureka, CA, which is a really odd coincidence since I've been a reader for a bit-I think since about the time Fireball was born. Does she need to know where the good yarn shops are??
