The question is? Who cares... Manamana!!


Am  I a Man or am I a Muppet?   Who cares?  Manamana!  

The Muppets are a familiar theme at our house lately.  I’m finding the comparisons pretty interesting these days.  

“Am I a Mannnnn or am I a Muppet, I’m a Muppet of a Man.”   Rye has been belting this out throughout the day and I can’t help but secretly think, I don’t know?  


Why not?  Being a man is hard.    Being a man is something I fear he might always struggle with throughout his life.

Being a muppet?  

It is pretty easy when you think about it.  You get to play a role and “be” somebody else. 

I mean think about it…

GONZO is the spirit of somebody who believes that he can be anything, including a person who can jump from a building without getting hurt while riding a motorcycle through a flame of fire and in the end you are so at peace with yourself that you get to marry a chicken.  

FOZZIE BEAR is somebody who is so confident that he sees himself as fabulous at doing anything,  no matter what life throws his way..  

ANIMAL is a drummer who has the know-how to take a moment and be completely free and do whatever he wants! 

MISS PIGGY brings the drama and gets away with it because it comes from a place of love.  

Last but not least, KERMIT who sees the best in everybody and always expects nothing more than he is willing to give himself.  

Throw it all together and what do you have?  Manamana!  Do Do Do!  Manamana!  Do Do Do!
 
Everybody has a Manamana.   Do Do Do!  

If you google it...go ahead do it.  

You will quickly find out that yes it is from the Muppets, current version and from the 1970s.  You will also find, according to Wikipedia, that  it is from a 1960s  pseudo-documentary about wild sexual activity and other behavior in Sweden!

I asked Wyatt what Manamana means and he said "it means something fun".  I asked Rye and he said is means "AHHH" and he ran to his drums.  

Manamana is the happiest of all feelings.  

For me, that is a ski lift and pressure to push myself down an “extreme area” with Amoo!  

It means don't worry about all the crap that life sometimes feeds you and just go with the flow! 

 It means be a part of the solution NOT a part of the problem.  

It is also the new thing that I think I am going  to say when someone is staring at me because my kids are doing something the other person thinks they shouldn't be doing.
