By the time we moved into our first house, we were expecting our third child and had been apartment dwellers for five years. The very first thing that Ria (then 4), Gus (then 2) and I did after the papers were signed on that house (and John had to go back to work for the afternoon, so we weren't really "doing" anything yet), was march around the table and sing as loud as we could. It felt so good to be able to make a little noise.
Ever since then parades and processions have been staples in our home - especially that first home which was quite small and had a basement that wasn't any good for playing in during long Wisconsin winters.
So I realized how completely inadequate my post about the "ologies" song was. This is a song about some of the "ology" words relating to the human body; like biology, ophthalmology, hematology, dermatology and cardiology. It's sung to the music of "Jamaican Farewell". This now has its own special dance step for parading around the house. I don't know how to explain it but it's a lot of fun, it keeps the kids fully concentrating and it's pretty good exercise.
I know, we're a little weird. :)
