My Work Here is Done

We were in the car heading back from the airport recently. ~ I know, every post lately seems to start that way, but it was a LONG day and a lot of time in the car.~  I was driving and flipping through the stations, trying to find something to listen to in a strange city late at night. The kids were contently watching a movie in the back seat.

Or so I thought....

Then this came on 

and the boy said, "What the heck is this song?"

I indicated it was a "hip hop remix" of this song.

"Well that's just stupid!" the girl said.

I didn't even scold her for her word choice, because I totally agreed.

My children prefer country.

The only thing better than that is when they can sing along to "Livin' on a Prayer" and "Don't Stop Believin'" with me!

I feel as though my work here is done.*

*Except for the word choice. We are working on that! - Successful parenting is finding 80's hair band music on your kids ipod

HA HA HA! That last image made me burst out laughing! That song, by the way, is totally one of girls' favorites...NOT the remix!-Ashley

I love the original, but the re-mix is catchy too!

My children also prefer country. I guess it happens when parents control the radio in the car.

My parents asked me why my son always likes country music. I think it's because I listen to it a lot, even when pregnant :)

So funny! I love exposing my kids to the 80's stuff! Country is not very big around here but my husband is into music, so is constantly introducing different music, and recently been playing more country. It does grow on you, except my kids find it so sad and a bit sappy! That's what I like!!

Oh that rocks!!! My kids will sing Bon Jovi with me too. I prefer country but they are reverting to Christian Rock from the 90's. I hope the hair band thing counts there. Love that pin!!

I prefer the country version, too.

Totally awesome!
One of my proud moments was when Elayna was really little and we were riding in the car and she said "Mama! Turn it up, I love this song!" I turned it up expecting Miley Cyrus and was thrilled to hear Free Fallin' by Tom Petty instead!

Love it- and they're right.
It IS stupid.
