Late Night Rock At The Schoolhouse

Every person you can know, and every place that you can go, and any thing that you can show; you know they're nouns. A noun's a special kind of word, it's any name you ever heard. I find it quite interesting, a noun's a person, place, or thing. A noun is a person, place, or thing.

There are nights when you have to turn on the Schoolhouse Rock dvd to settle the question of which comes first...taking a train to another state or taking a ferry to the Statute of Liberty. Even thought it is technically bedtime, and the answer could wait until morning.

There are some nights when you have to also watch Figure Eight, Unpack Your Adjectives, and Interplanet Janet. Because they are so very fun (and it is important to celebrate songs which correctly identify Pluto as a planet).

And then, there are some nights when you have to keep watching Schoolhouse Rock videos. You have to watch Interjections!, Elementary My Dear, and The Tale Of Mr. Morton, until you have sung along to every single song on the disc.

On these nights, it doesn't matter if blog posts need to be written, or your kid has school the next day, or there are emails to be answered, or if the bed is calling out your name. Because everyone should stay up past 11 o'clock singing, and laughing, and rhyming about grammar with their family at least once in their life.

That is exactly what I did tonight. I don't regret a second of it.

*NaBloPoMo - Day 11.


  1. Oh man it has been a while since I have seen these and now you got me wanting to watch them again. Total trip down memory lane :)

  2. My high school did School House Rock the musical back in the day! I distinctly remember singing, "3 it's a magic number....". Ahhh, the memories!


  3. Conjunction junction what's your function!!! I definitely love moments where you spend good, quality time with your loved ones and simply forget the rest of the world exists for a while. They're so important!

  4. We're huge Schoolhouse Rock fans around here and it amazes me that my kids are as into it now as I was when I was their age.

  5. Oh man! We love Schoolhouse Rock here! So jealous! I would have loved to be a part of this sing along <3

  6. Schoolhouse idea what that is

  7. Love this. I don't have a DVD, though. I really need to introduce my kid to this, because it's a must!!
