Yella Habibi (Inshallah)



Sometimes when I start writing a post, it ends up going in a whole different direction. Quite like this post. It was supposed to be all about firsts. Like this weekend was the first time I went running in Morocco and sucked up tons of exhaust fumes, questioned if I did more harm than good and reaffirmed my hatred of running. And this weekend was also the first time we've ever left all 4 kids home alone while we went to a party and when we returned home they were all lying in their beds. Then after we checked that they were all breathing, we deemed it a success.

But then, we did something I've been wanting to do for a while. I had this idea that we should make our first Arabic music video. And then I decided not to write anything else. Because really, there are no words.

So without further ado, I give you Yella Habibi (Inshallah)...



And yes, that's about all the Darija (Moroccan Arabic) we know. Excluding the swear words of course...


You can view our first, first music video ever, Follaback Girl here

You may not want to run outside for a day or two. A crazed motorist may not be as crazed as you think...
Thanks for the morning laugh...
And, kudos to the dubber!

Sweet camel cheese? Please tell me that's not used as an actual compliment!

Don't worry Kara, no it's not, we just got a little creative with translations is all.
