So I pick my six year-old up from school today.  I have the new
Uncle Tupelo compilation in the CD player; "Graveyard Shift" is
playing.  Jack listens intently all the way home (about a two
minute drive... shut up, M1EK).  When we get home, he asks,
"Can we take that in the house?  I want to listen some more."

My kid freaking rules.

My stepson thinks every sporting event on TV is Texas.
His favorite quote (and he has plenty of opportunity to
use it) is "C'mon, Texas!  You're playing like a bunch
of bumps on logs".

I don't know if he rules, but it cracks me up just the same.

My seven year old always asks if I will play 'That guy who sings that song'
aka John Hiatt.  So I get some new stuff, and he and his lil sister are
grooving in the back seat.  A new song starts up and he says he doesn't
think he's heard this one, so they both lean forward to listen.  Hiatt
starts up "I'm sittin on the toilet with my sunglasses on..." and bedlam
ensues.  They're still rolling on the floor twenty minutes after we get
home.

My stepkids prefer Everclear to all other artists.

All in all, Everclear beats the hell out of N'Sync,
so I think I'll keep 'em.

My little girl thinks Elvis rules.

I wouldn't trade her for anything!

I was driving somewhere the other day with my kid in the
back seat chattering away.  Some song I really liked came on
(GNR "Don't Cry" maybe?) and I said, "Allison, this is one
of my favorite songs.  Can we listen to it?"

She was silent for the whole song, and when it was over I
asked her if she liked it.

She was silent for a second, then said, "I like Itsy Bitsy
Spider."

This is true, unless Everclear did a gay-ass acoustic
version of "Santa Monica" or something blasphemous like
that.

There is a delicious irony in there somewhere.

Gotta start early before the corporate brainwashing sets in.

My kids love The Presidents of the United States of America.  This is key
because I know they're my kids (only important if that's what you're
expecting them to be) and they know they're not adopted (see previous
disclaimer).
