This song is stuck in my head.

The Tominator and I were busy making chili this morning, when I noticed he had gotten a hold of one of my spice jars. The lid was on, so I let him play.

When I looked over a minute later, he had removed the lid and liberally shaken the herb all over the kitchen floor.

“Oh no!” I said. “Let’s keep the thyme in the bottle.”

And there it was.

    If I had a dime for every time a conversation with my child ended up cleverly in the title of a song…well, that never happens to me. But I loved your story.

    Does it seem weird to you that the boy is drinking a bottle in the video? Is there milk in the bottle or is it really the time saved in the bottle but now draining away….? Nah, it was probably a total coincidence.

    So cheesy, and yet? Jim Croce and my dad could have been twins in the 70s. In fact, we had an 8-track (yes!) of Croce and my brother and I used to argue with my dad that it was him on the front. True.
