Laurie Berkner is my new BFF

She really is. If she isn't it's only because she doesn't have a clue who I am. Oh no, but I know her. Yes I do. I know you, Ms. Laurie Berkner. And whether you like it or not, today you are my BFF.

Right now my daughter is calm after her daddy went out for dinner and a movie w. a friend. She was losing it, but I decided to put *music* on. It's the "Let's Hear it for Laurie" special that was on Noggin a few weeks (a month yet?) back. My little one LOVES it, and is happy as a clam ... which has always been an interesting saying to me, because how does one know how happy a clam is, actually? But I digress ...

Laurie, if you're out there, and I know you're not, I just wanted to let you know that you've saved me twice today. The first time being when my daughter was playing on the laptop, and yes, our MAC laptop, she doesn't have her own toy one so she knows how to use ours too well for my liking! Lil Miss *I* requested music. "I need MUuuuSIC."

OK, so there I am. I'm working on it. I'm trying to get her something to dance to, and decided, you know what? iTunes is my friend, and on iTunes I have Laurie! Yahoo!!!

Anyway, thanks, L! Please know if I can ever return the favor I will surely come up with something to help you out. And if you ever hit the Raleigh-Durham area, give me a ring, I'd love to put you up for a few days. You're not allergic to cats or dogs are you? Or kids? Uhm, scratch that last one. I've seen your videos, we're all clear there. And I promise not to laugh at the pig on your head. After all, if you keep it there all day you must already get poked fun at enough to last you.


  1. Laurie is awesome! Her songs are always so silly and fun, most kids just love her...

  2. My kids love Laurie Berkner. We sing and dance to her songs all the time.
