Have to admit

I have to admit we've been listening to a lot of music by a recently deceased performer who was known for wearing one white glove. It is funny how one kid is drawn to the early Jackson 5 songs while another likes the tunes from Off the Wall and Thriller. The third just seems to be coping. Until I found out he suggested the camp group name this summer be "Rocking Robins". So he's been listening too.

But this version of ABC on the Carol Burnett show is priceless partly because she is a terrific comedic actress and because they are all singing live, something you never ever hear on television these days.

While grocery shopping this weekend, little lady broke into her own MJ-inspired medley which led to several store employees stacking a vegetable section to break into smiles and clap.

Anything making you break into song and dance next to the cucumbers?

Sorry for the lack of Linky Love options. Just put a link to your post in the comments and I'll make a nice little list.

We also have been playing a lot of MJ--and everyone has their own favorite, from "I'll Be There" to "Dirty Diana," and everything in between. Sigh. So sad.

I sing in the market all the time. Crazy lady.

I love the color-coordinated students/teacher thing. I see that *all* the time when I teach.

Fun blast from the past!

You. Are seriously. The COOLEST MOM!!! Of COURSE your kids suddenly break into song in the market!

I think you have some of the cutest kid stories around. No singing in the grocery store for my little one, but he did put a basketball under his shirt and kept walking up and down the isles telling everyone he met to get in his belly, in a very Mike Myers way.

BTW...please email me at I lost your email address and need to ask you an important question.
