Oh, this entry brought a huge smile to my face, darling! Just this morning I was reading an amusing article about "some recommendations for sharing the music of your life with the little ones without damaging them". Some of the advice includes, "All of DEVO's popular songs are good. The peppy new wave music touches a chord in the young mind. It is no coincidence than Mark Mothersbaugh did the theme music to Rugrats ... Kids under ten don't get the double meanings in lyrics. Therefore, Mother's Little Helper and Squeeze Box are acceptable. The Bitch Is Back isn't subtle enough ... REM is perfect because the music is good and no one understands what the hell they're saying. I've got my spine, I've got my Orange Crush? Puh-leeze. What is the Frequency Kenneth? ... The Kinks' Come Dancing; absolute perfection ... I'm A Boy from the Who is catchy and appealing to kids, but be ready to discuss the meaning of the term "head case" ... Finally, Bob Dylan's word-salad lyrics provide hours of fun. The lyrics for Subterranean Homesick Blues and Tombstone Blues flow well and stick in your head better than Barney songs. And let's face it, nobody, not even your kids want Barney lyrics stuck in their heads." Love, R xxx

That's so rad! I remember dancing with my daughter Kassie to Green Day and Nirvana also! She's 11 now and starting to play guitar, a chip off the old block. Who knows, maybe it was all that jumping around and having fun. I remember afterwards, out of breath and sweating, with her laying her sweaty little head on my chest, thinking, "I think I'm just happy."

Definitely cool. I freaked one day when the eldest neice was the only neice (age 3) and I walked up around the corner to go upstairs...I realized she was almost curled into a ball on the bottom step and shaking. It startled me very much (thinking seizure) and then I heard her little voice...she was singing along to the Elvis Costello I was blaring so loudly through the house! I grabbed a camera and snapped a pic. It just looks like a little girl in a ball but I remember what she was doing! : )

I can totally relate. Gabrielle and I play for about an hour or so everyday with music in the background. This weekend it was Robert Randolph and the Family Band. Her favorite though is Johnny Cash and Elvis.

My friends kid was barely two before she was bopping around to Pennywise. A few years later she was dancing like an old hardcore kid to an instrumental Pantera song from the Spongebob Squarepants
