The pop tunes mobile (pictured left)

I got to it through the child life listserv. I don't know why I clicked on the link, but I did. Mobiles can be big discussion for child life specialists. In a hospital you need all plastic mobiles for infection control purposes. Apparently the vast majority of mobiles have fabric pieces and you can't really disinfect those. There was one all plastic mobile that was a favorite and it was discontinued. So someone found this all plastic mobile by accident while looking to order some other toy. GREAT! Very exciting for professionals I am sure.

Now you're probably thinking I'm crazy. What's so scary about a mobile? The description. The description is scary. Very scary.

PopTunes infant and preschool toys play the popular songs parents grew up listening to on the radio!

Popular songs include:

  • Let's Play Together
  • All Star
  • Wide Open Spaces

I grew up listening to those songs! Well, I've never heard of Let's Play Together, but I still love The Dixie Chicks. Wide Open Spaces is on my iPod. "songs parents grew up listening to" WHOA!!! HOLD ON A SEC!!! What happened??? When did I get that old??? Not me. Oh No.

The other day I said something to my new roomate about a friend's birthday. Didn't know what the plans were (if any). "Maybe I should call her husband," I said. Husband??? What??? I have friends with husbands??? (yes, I did say friends plural) When did that happen???

I think I'll fly off to Never Never Land
[that's Peter Pan flying off to the right]

I won't grow up
I don't want to wear a tie.
And a serious expression
In the middle of July.
And if it means I must prepare
To shoulder burdens with a worried air,

I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up
Not me,
Not I,
Not me!
'Cause growing up is awfuller
Than all the awful things that ever were.

We won't grow up!
We will never grow a day
And if someone tries to make it
We will simply run away
I won't grow up!
No, I promise that I won't
I will stay a boy forever
And be banished if I don't!

**Is it just me or does someone else think it's extremely odd to have little babies falling asleep to Smash Mouth songs? Well I guess as long as it's not Brittney. Excuse me while I throw up at that thought.**
