Bathroom Songs

February 19, 2009 at 10:20 am 5 comments


This is my iPod.  I don’t know much about it, but my son seems to think it’s very cool and keeps offering to trade with me…which is the sole reason I won’t trade with him.  I haven’t learned to use it for video much yet, but I know that it can hold movies…I just can’t think of any movies I’d really want to view on it that small at the moment.

Our latest conversation this week about my iPod.

Son:  “Mom, why do you have a playlist ‘bathroom songs’ on your iPod playlists?”

Mom:  no answer.

Son:  “I mean, really, ‘bathroom songs’?”

Mom:  no answer.

Son:  “I mean, what if someone picks up your iPod and sees that?”

Mom:  (thinking, I didn’t know this was a common thing, to expect someone else to come puruse my iPod playlists)

Son:  “Mom, why bathroom songs?”

Mom:  “Because I was just wanting some songs your Dad and I would both like to listen to in the morning without annoying either of us, and the speakers for the iPod are in the bathroom right now.”

Son:  “Oh.  Well, you just might want to call it something else.”

Mom:  “I’ll think about it.  I get your point.  I was just in a hurry and it seemed to make sense at the time.”

—->two days later

Daughter:  “Mom, why do you have a playlist called “bathroom songs” on your iPod?”

Mom:  (thinking, I just added my first playlists and how is it they even know to go look for them, there have never been any on there before!?)

Daughter:  “Mom?”

Mom:  (gives same answer as above)

Daughter scrolls to first song:  “Um, Mom?  ‘Praise Him with the Dance?”


{whew…who knew it was so much work…and yet, still.  WHAT ARE MY KIDS DOING TOUCHING MY IPOD?}

    tell them its for security…. if anyone ever takes it, and you need to identify it or prove its yours, your knowing that there is a playlist named bathroom songs might be critical. i mean, anyone might be able to guess if there were one labeled something like morning songs.

    This is so funny and really should be submitted to a magazine or something, but the most important thing it reminds me to do is put me a “bathroom songs” playlist on my iPod right this very minute!!!

    So good!!

    Blessings, friend!

    I think the funny part of it was visualizing the song as a “bathroom song”! She DID have a point with that one! But, you are so right! 😀

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
