Help Me Rhonda

Today I was cleaning the bathroom and jamming out to the Beach Boys. I know. I know. The Beach Boys. But hey, it gets me moving. (I used to love to clean to Paula Abdul's Cold Hearted Snake. Anyone have that CD? I'd love it.)

Anyway, I was busting out quite the rendition of Help Me Rhonda. Help help me Rhonda. All of a sudden, Connor comes running in from the other room.

"What mom! WHAT!"

"Nothing Connor. I didn't call you."

"But what's wrong? You were screaming for help."

Oh, what a sweet boy you are Connor! I know I'll always be able to depend on you little man!
Apparently my singing skills need some help too.

You must have been "singing" really loud! :)

Download Cold Hearted Snake off of itunes...

♫ Ah ohh... he's been tellin lies...♫

Now I am going to have that song in my head the rest of the day.

I'm sure he was responding to the "Help Me" part and NOT your singing.

Sweet boy!

Help me Rhonda and help me 'Conna"
sound alike!! Lauren is in love with the Jensen kids, specially the littlest one. (who gives really good lovies!!)

Bridget said...

That is so cute! I'm always surprised when my kids pick up on lyrics.

Jessica said...

Thanks, Jenibelle for the link between Rhonda and Conner. I didn't get that part.

I was still here to comment on his extreme helpfulness. Darling post.

That is too funny! When I sing that loud, no one comes running TO me - usually it's AWAY!

So cute! Love the beach boys! Love Paula Abdule! Love adorable helpful children!

Christie said...

Yeah, well my daughter was singing, "Doncha wish your girlfriend was hot like me" this morning. What does that say about the music she hears around here? I think the Beach Boys is a better way to go.

i have the paula abdul cassette. it's yours if you still have a cassette player.

my kids like heathen music like christie's. they hear it on the bus. isn't that awful?

this post was awesome. love that you have your own personal rescue hero.

Lauren said...

That was seriously so cute!

I love that he not only said you needed help but, that you were, "screaming" for help...I serioulsy am laughing so hard at your charming little story...and your humor...I got a giggle out of the last line ;)

I'm with Shally...I've got that song in my head now...

♪ he's a lover boy at play--he don't play by rules--oh, ohhhh, oh, oh--girl don't play the fool ♫

Laurel said...

Hey, I love The Beach Boys. There is no better summer music that has ever been made. It's like a bottle of sunshine and happy juice all in one.

He thought you were screaming for help. That is funny!

Hi Honey!
You know you always have a great
protector at your house! I'm glad you can sing while you get your work done! I need to start singing and do some work around here!
Love you!
