Yesterday Kyle and I packed up the car and drove out to visit Aunt Val’s. Thursday was Libby’s first birthday and Val and Steph had a few people over to wish her well. Not that she really noticed except people were gushing over her and giving her all sorts of attention and what 1 year old can hate that?
As I pulled out on the road I threw in the Kids Bop CD that we’d gotten from McDonald’s. I honestly dislike a lot of today’s bubblegum pop and intensely dislike it sung by kids and done in a weird make your own CD at the mall sort of way. But I figured it’s geared for kids right, and Kyle is starting to like music. His reaction was to stare out the window in boredom and since he wasn’t digging it I flipped it off and turned on the radio. Offspring’s Keep ’em Separated was on and in the mirror I have to see him while I’m driving I watched as he started to bogey in his seat, then he started to ‘sing’ along.
Be still my heart, is he digging Alt Rock? Joy! When that song was over I switched to another station, This time Queen’s We are the Champion’s was playing. The. Same. Reaction. My year and a half year old has good taste in music! I mean, he still digs Backyardagain’s tunes but, holy moley he likes actual music! The more guitar the better to his mind.
Next up we’ll try some Skynard.
