I find my son's taste in music hilarious. On any given day if you ask him his favorite song, he might name "Old Time Rock and Roll" and "The Little Sister Song," ("White Wedding"), or "Bennie & the Jets" or any one of a number of old Michael Jackson tunes. Then again, he's really into Maroon 5 lately - loves "Moves Like Jagger" and others. Also loves CeeLo Green, and Lady GaGa's a fave too.
I didn't think I'd have to put on the pop stations for a four-year-old, or that he'd somehow know the lyrics to pop songs. Of course, I didn't think I'd have to put pop music on for my husband to car dance to either, but that's another story. On the bright side, he's getting much, much better at finding the melody line of a song--very encouraging to the musician in his mommy. On the not-as-bright side, I'm becoming way to familiar with pop music. Waayyy to familiar.

On being told that it was time to leave because the Halloween Spooktacular was over, Aidan told me, "If I'm still here, Mommy, it's still a party!" He said it with conviction, too - not like he was making a point, but like he was stating the obvious. Excellent.
"Mommy, why I can't say, 'Oh Jesus!' when my Vacation Bible School songs say 'Oh Jesus' all the time?" Well, Aidan, it's all about context. Sometimes when you say the same words they mean different things depending on how you say them. "You mean like when you call me 'Nutball' it's okay because you love me in the whole world?" Exactly!
(He did not learn that from me.)
I'm working on a large project now for my client, and clearly I have a lot less free time than I've had recently. Ugh. He's so hilarious right now, and I'm missing golden quotes!!
Last weekend we went to Homecoming at OU. We rented a giant house for the weekend with friends and had a blast. But first, we went into town. We told Aidan we were having lunch at the Flying Buffalo (BW3). He said, "I'm not eating; I'm just drinking." Definitely his father's son.
