Happy Birthday Gummy Bear!

So, today is my nieces 5th birthday!

Happy birthday little girl. Keep being you, cause you’re awesome as you are.

And just for you, I’m going to share the song we sing together.

Presenting, the Gummy Bear song, which my niece likes to sing while pretending she is a DJ.

Love you. Hope you like your present. 🙂

My mom nicknamed us all after candies, and so we call my niece Gummy Bear, and this is a song my little sister and I used to sing when we were little kids, so we brought it back…and boy does it annoy my folks when the three of us sing this over and over and over during car rides.


“Santa isn’t saying Ho Ho Ho!”

My best friend gave my niece an ice cream cone during the Christmas break. My niece suddenly got very hyper…and I saw myself reflected in a four year old.

N: Santa isn’t saying HO HO HO! He didn’t say it! Santa is supposed to say that! A robot got flusheded down the sink!

Me: You can’t flush things down the sink.


Me: No you can’t. There’s no flusher thingy.

Sis: Handle.

Me: There’s no handle.

N: I’m going to flush all the robots down the toilet with the poopoo on it!

Me: Why do you always talk about toilets these days!?

Sis: Because toilets are hilarious.

Me: Psssh. You know what’s HIL-AIR-REE-OUS!? Chicken nuggets.


Me: I love cookies and ice cream and mountain dew and puppies and–

Sis: This is why we don’t let you have sugar.

Me: I know she’s so hyper.

Sis: I was talking about you.

Me: Oh….oh wow…so that’s where she gets it from. Ha…well now we know what to expect.


The next morning my niece got up at 6 am to talk to me about toilets again. I really don’t get it…but honestly after hanging out with a lot of 3 to 6 year olds, I’ve learned to just nod and smile politely.
