We’re Knights, That’s Right!

Yesterday found us at the Backyardigan’s Live show. I think every preschooler in our county was there! The Tale of the Mighty Knights was a fantastic stage adaptation of the cartoon. It kept the kids engaged, it was interactive and the music was great. The actors were not in full face masks so it was a little strange to see the characters with human faces. Beyond that, it was a great time out with kids.

Afterwards my friends and I took our six children to eat pizza at Uno‘s. The food was excellent. The kids were not. It was a long day for them. Understandably, they were tired. I was in preschool hell. They were animals… We were those people with obnoxious kids… I hate being those people. We did the best we could to control the masses then made a mad dash for the door when the bill was paid. *sigh* No amount of crayons and coloring pages could have held their attention. It was one of those times when I wish they were more grown up… My nerves were shot when I got home. Luckily, J swooped in to give Wildman and Cutie Pie their baths. I’ve never been more thankful to have him lend a hand. I had zero patience and I needed a serious time out. 🙂

    I miss Pizzeria Unos. Haven’t been there in forever. Do they still make that cookie monster shake? I used to always order those.

    I’ll have to see if they come by this way. My two oldest love them… even when I curse the TV because yet again… one backyardigan is missing… and they don’t tell you where he went!

    We’re knights that’s right.
    With smarts and strength.
    And guts and might.

    We’re never ever rude.
    Always polite.
    Our knightly skills are out of sight.

    We’re knights that’s right.
    We’re knights that’s right.

    Just yesterday we rode our horses across the field.
    We came upon some ogres and we stopped them with our shields.

    Then i saw an angry ogre, thought i was a goner.
    But i jumped down and trapped him.
    I did it for your HONORRRRRRRRR.

    Next we crossed a river and scaled the cliffs of doom.
    Then we took a little break and went to the bathroom.
    We crept into the forest just as it was getting dark.
    We heard a little crackle.
    And that’s when we said ARRRRRR.

    We saw a prudest beast, that’s when we said hault.
    Then we had him for a breakfast with some butter and salt.

    We’re knights that’s right.
    With smarts and strength.
    And guts and might.

    We’re never ever rude.
    Always polite.
