Singing the Jeopardy Theme Song

Humorous parenting helps me keep my sanity.

With the passing of Merv Griffin, I was reminded of a cute story from a few months ago.  The boys were dawdling over every task….schoolwork….meals…..chores, and I was having difficulty maintaining my cool while encouraging them to finish.  As a joke I started singing the Jeopardy Theme song to them when I just couldn’t think of anything else to motivate and inspire.  Plus it made me smile, which was necessary at the time.

After a few days, the Jeopardy fad passed and I forgot about the whole thing. 

Then we were at the table one day at lunch, and The Manager was just taking for-stinkin-ever to finish his sandwich.  I said something or other about him eating so slowly, and he said, “Well Mama, you could sing me that song.” 

Hey, whatever works.  Lol.

    It’s amazing what kids will remember. Just when you think it’s been forgotten completely, it pops right back up again!

    God Bless!

    I have to say, that I could not agree with you in 100% regarding ve Parenting with Humor, but it’s just my opinion, which could be wrong 🙂

    I don’t really hear that song but i think that’s a nice song, for a child to request that song would be an evidence.
