I'm the Mom of a 6 year old that wants to be a rock star.

(I started this post yesterday, but didn't have time to finish and post it yesterday...so it's late...so sue me!) Since today is Colin's 6th Birthday, and today is "Turntable Thursday" I thought I ought to let Colin share some of his favorite music. For the last few months Colin has rocked the air guitar, and for the last few weeks he has been singing up a storm. Not all of it makes sense, not all of it is on key, but he has been having fun with it, so I let him keep it up. Here are some of his favorite songs to "sing": Anything from Chicken Little. More specifically the BNL song "One Little Slip". "Route 66" from the Cars Soundtrack. Although he doesn't get the word correctly then gets mad when I try to sing it the right way, and if I try to tell him that song has been around a long time, he doesn't believe me. "Buzz Buzz" by Laurie Berkner (his favorite singer) "Contact" by Citizen Cope (finally! Some grown-up music) "Bandages" by Hot Hot Heat (more grown-up music!) AND last but not least: "Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robot" by Colin Behunin. It's his favorite made up song. Now that I have a 6 year old...possibly we will start listening to a wider variety of music, but most likely even though he knows who The Tings Tings and The Killers are, he'll still just have his own tastes.
