Thank God I’m Drinking Margaritas


We have just surpassed the 65-minute mark of non-stop, 194-decibel, Backyardigans theme singing and he’s showing no signs of stopping in the near future.

Bottoms up, my friends. Bottoms up. Happy Friday!

The Backyardigans obsession continues… from whoorl on Vimeo.

    I saw your margarita in the video! He is such a cutie pie.

  2. I will totally come babysit if you let me drink a few of those afterwards on your patio.

    greyfavorite’s last blog post..Yay, May!

  3. That is ridiculously adorable. Go Wito! Of course, I only have to hear it once…until my own Backyardigans-lovin’ kiddo learns to sing the theme song for himself!

  4. The fact that there is a margarita in the background makes you my favorite mommy!

    TUWABVB’s last blog post..Waah.

  8. Ohmygod, I LOVE how he sings with such gusto!

    Of course, I’m not there listening to it, non-stop. I have a video player with a pause button. Cute as a bug, though!

    But I’m pretty sure if you share that margarita with him, he’ll quiet right down.

  9. could that be ANY cuter!!

  10. i don’t think its possible to have a cuter child.

  11. Miss Virginia says:

    DELICIOUS! (both him and your marg!) Any chance you’d share your Whoorled famous Whoorlgarita recipe? They look so very refreshing!

  12. That’s it. I am coming to California and stealing that kid. He is so damn cute!! And I just happen to LOVE the Backyardigans, so I’d sing right along with him.

    You’re going to be so glad you have video of this kind of stuff when he’s older. You just want to eat them up at this age.

    I’ve now threatened to steal and eat your child in one comment.

  13. “Pirattitude” (sp?) of Backyardigans fame is in heavy rotation ’round these parts, so I feel your pain. Although I’m fairly certain one of those margaritas would significantly reduce my UNENDING HEADACHE.

  14. Mine watched Madagascar and keeps running around shaking his 6 year old bootay while screaming “I like to…” and then he waits for me to complete it and if I don’t complete it? Non-stop.. “I like to…” over and over and over again.

    And I’m out of beer.

  15. If Wito disappears it is because I have temporarily stolen him. What a cutie.

  16. That is adorable! And you know, it could be worse, it COULD be the Barney theme song.

  17. My little one thought that was quite funny, so funny in fact I turned on the Backyardigans for the first time right now and he’s laughing. Hysterically.

    I’m in trouble.

  18. I love the margarita on the table as proof of your attempts at mind numbing. Your little one is too freaking cute! I (almost) want one for myself…but only if he is a super-genious like yours!

  19. oh dear,
    My son heard the singing and came running from the next room. He was quite dissapointed that the show wasn’t actually on!


    shannon’s last blog post..uphill

  20. Yeah, ok. I keep asking my kids what are those thing’s names, why are they different colors, and why do they annoy me so much? I’m sure that show is highly intellectual. I just don’t find it appealing. (It’s almost creepy)

    justJENN’s last blog post..You don’t understand clothing, Toby! You’re dressed like this amorphous blog of khaki.

  21. OH dear god that was five hundred kinds of freaking adorable!

    Rachel’s last blog post..What I can control

  22. What an awesome job carrying a tune! My son also sings theme songs repeatedly, although now that he is six it’s the Star Wars theme and Indiana Jones theme OVER AND EFFING OVER! I didn’t know little kids could actually not sound BAD when they sang. Damn it, I’m jealous. Wito has a musical career ahead of him! Keep taping him cause the hits will just keep coming. Whenever I get the mail I still sing to myself “We just got a letter! I wonder who it’s from!”
