Oh Yeah Oh Yeah Rock On
Yes, this is exactly how Iris Uber Alles and Lola behave all the time: singing so adorably until the sibling rivalry flares up.
is this really them?
it's liking finally seeing movie stars!
Yes, it is! They are Youtube addicts (they love watching vintage Sesame Street clips on Youtube; much better than Sesame St du jour) and have been hounding their father to help them make a youtube video for ages. That's the Sober Husband assisting them.
Hahaha. Your children are pretty as much as they are hams.
My younger daughter was mesmerized by Lola's performance, the same reverence she reserves for Laurie Berkner and Curious George.
Looks like she's got the almost 2 year-old demographic sewn up. How much longer before Lola is doing a "Move to the Music" interstitial for Noggin?
i've watched this several times now. so funny.
i especially love Lola's determination and spirit of "the show must go on" despite anything else that happens.
oh yeah. rock on, girl!
the funny thing is, that was SO me when I was Lola's age... minus a pesky sister.
what am I talking about? It is still me!
Oh, and Sesame Street is now on DVD! The old school ones!!!
Oh my...it reminds me of my girls, one getting all 'tweeny' and the smaller one completely self involved. They are so cute!
Great show! Particularly the Sober Husband attempting to be the voice of reason as Iris makes her move and Lola continues as a solo act!
A thousand pardons for my tardiness Iris Uber Alles. BTW I am online at a B&B in Ashland, OR called....wait for it... The Iris B&B. Pure coincidence, our first 2 choices were closed. We have been in frigid climes for a week, but I DID have access to the internet. No excuses. My clever/witty cicuit breaker has been triped and I am unable to come up with a question that would befit a person of your status, so a cat picture would be a wonderful substitution prize, Thank You!
Your kids are truly superstars!
I think Iris has inherited some of your lawyering skills: "This is breach of contract! I never agreed to a joint appearance with a singing Lola! Pay me damages!" OK, maybe that was all subtext, but it was there.
