mom overture

The Agony Principle: Parents should not agonize over anything children do or fail to do if those children are perfectly capable of agnozing over it themselves.



Get 'em out, get ‘em out, get ‘em out of bed~ Wash your face, brush your teeth, come on sleepy head~ Get your clothes, get your shoes, get a word I said~ Get up now, get up and make your bed~ Are you hot, are you cold, are you wearing that~ Where’s your books and your lunch and your homework at~ Grab your coat and your gloves and your scarf and hat~ Don’t forget, you got to feed the cat~ Eat your breakfast. Experts tells us it’s the most important meal of all~ Take your vitamins so you will grow up one day to be big and tall~ Remember the orthodontist will be seeing you at three today~ Don’t forget piano lessons are this afternoon so you must play. Don’t shuffle, she’s lovely, but hurry, the bus is hear~ be careful, come back here, did you wash, behind your ears.

Play outside, don’t play rough, could you just play fare~ Be polite, make a friend, don’t forget to share~ Work it out, take your turn, never take a dare~ Get along, don’t make me come down there~ Clean your room, pick up clothes, put your stuff away~ Make your bed, do it now, do you have all day~ Were you born in a barn, would you like some hay~ Do you even hear a word I say~ Answer the phone, get off the phone~ Don’t sit so close, turn it down, no texting at the table~ No more computer time tonight~ Your ipods my ipod if you don’t listen up

Were you going, when your leaving and what time do you think your coming home?~ Say thank you, please, excuse me, bless you , welcome every were you go~ You’ll appreciate my wisdom someday when your older and you are grown~ Can’t wait until you have a couple little children of your own~ You’ll thank me for the council I gave you so willingly~ But right now I’ll thank you not to roll your eyes at me~ Close your mouth when you chew and appreciate~ Take a bite, maybe two of the stuff you hate~ Use a fork, do not burp or I’ll set you straight~ Eat the food I put upon your plate~ Get an A, but don’t get smart with me~ Get a grip, take a breath, counting down to three~ Get a job, get a life, get a PhD~ Here we go.

I don’t care who started it~ Your grounded until your 36~ Get your story straight and tell the truth for once for heaven sake~ And if all your friends jumped off a cliff would you jump too?~ If I said it once I’ve said it at least a thousand times before that~ Your too old to act this way~ Must be your fathers DNA~ Look at me when I am talking~ Stand up straighter when you walk~ A place for everything~ And everything must be in place~ Stop crying or I’ll give you something real to cry about~ Oh

Brush your teeth, wash your face put your pjs on~ Get in bed, get a hug, Say a prayer with mom~ Don’t forget, I love you, *kiss*~ And tomorrow we will do this all again~ Because your moms job never ends~ You don’t need a reason why~ Because, because, because, because~ I said so~ I’m the mom, the mom, the mom, mom, mom~ The Mom~ Tada

I remember seeing this one with you. It was entertaining, and to be honest pretty true, lol :D

Lots of nitty gritty. Still, I don't much like the song. :P

I found a Wonderful site on Isaiah!
http://www.isaiahexplained.com/
The site has free lessons on every chapter.
Very well done and in the author’s own voice.
Every Isaiah Chapter has the Analytical Commentary of Isaiah. Enjoy this personable verse-by-verse commentary of Isaiah by well-known Hebrew scholar Avraham Gileadi.

“Dr. Gileadi is the only LDS scholar I know of who is thoroughly competent to teach the words of Isaiah”—Professor Hugh Nibley, Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah. (1. 6. 2003)

“It is my testimony that this man has been brought forward and trained at this time to help those inside the Church into Isaiah, and those outside the Church, Jew and Gentile, through Isaiah into the Church” —Arthur Henry King, author, former BYU professor and London
Temple President.

“Dr. Gileadi has achieved a major breakthrough in the investigation of a book of such complexity and importance as the Book of Isaiah”—Professor David Noel Freedman, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

“Dr. Gileadi’s work will render obsolete almost all the speculations of Isaiah scholars over the last one hundred years . . . enabling scholarship to proceed along an entirely new line . . . opening new avenues of approach for others to follow”—Professor Roland K. Harrison, Wycliffe College, Toronto, Canada.

“Only one who is truly at home not only with the Hebrew but with the ancient manner of biblical thought could have produced such an insightful and ground-breaking book”—Professor S. Douglas Waterhouse, Andrews University, Berrien Springs, Michigan.

“Avraham Gileadi’s unsealing of the Book of Isaiah will forever change people’s
understanding of Judeo-Christian religion, lifting it to heights hitherto known only to prophets and saints”—Arie Noot, corporate executive, Edmond, Oklahoma.

“Isaiah Decoded is a huge breakthrough for the seeker of truth—Jew, Christian, Moslem, and agnostic. From an ancient writing, Gileadi has brought to light eternal truths about the nature of God and our relationship to him that have lain buried for centuries in the dust of time”—Guy Wins, fifth-generation Jewish diamond dealer from Antwerp, Belgium.

“Gileadi is the only scholar I know who has been able to express the Jewish expectation of the Messiah in relation to the life and mission of Jesus of Nazareth”—Daniel Rona, Israeli tour guide, Jerusalem, Israel.

“Dr. Gileadi has clearly demonstrated his mastery of the Book of Isaiah and of the scholarly literature dealing with it”—Professor Ronald Youngblood, Bethel Theological Seminary, San Diego, California.

“Avraham Gileadi’s books and tapes take the casual observer of Isaiah’s words and transform him into an enlightened and lifelong student of the Word of God”—Allan and Nancy Pratt, LDS mission president, Toulouse, France.

“Dr. Gileadi has awakened a whole new depth of my understanding of Isaiah’s prophetic message. His books and tapes illuminate the urgent relevance of Isaiah’s writings to our own day”—Becky Douglas, supervisor and sponsor of three orphanages in India, Atlanta, Georgia.

“Dr. Gileadi’s translation [of the Book of Isaiah] is clear and smooth, allowing the reader to appreciate the power and beauty of Isaiah as conveyed in the Hebrew original”—Professor Herbert M. Wolf, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois.

“Gileadi has uncovered an amazing message written in a divine code by the prophet–poet Isaiah. This will give comfort, hope, and joy to masses of people as they cope with the perplexing events now unfolding before their eyes”—Fenton Tobler, thirty years elementary school principle, Las Vegas, Nevada.
