Music To My Ears

McDonald's is trying to ruin the vow I made as an angst ridden teenager. The first time I saw the commercial in the '90s, I swore my child would never have a certain item and now McDonald's is GIVING it away in their Happy Meals.

Kidz Bop Vol 635

When I discovered the cd squeezed between her chicken nuggets and apples, I cringed. And then I did what every sane parent would do.

I tried to hide it.

But apparently, all 5 year olds instictively know to look under the picnic table at a public park.

So, I braced myself. And put it in the cd player on the way home. She listened. She bobbed her head. She asked me if I would take her to "Funkytown" (which I will admit to cranking the volume waaaay up.)

And then. . . just when I thought she was going to ask me to buy the previous 634 volumes of Kidz Bop. . .

She asked me to put Johnny Cash back in the cd player.

I love that girl.

You're raising her right!

That was close! And I'm glad that she's still in love with good old Johnny.

LOL as a former kindergarten teacher I can relate to not wanting to listen to "kid" music!!!

I will have to check out that furniture store you suggested! Thanks!

Your parenting style should be studied, bottled, and sold. Way to go!

Whew, what a relief! My youngest child recently made me quite proud. She asked me to turn up the radio, and the song that was on was not Miley Cyrus or even Carrie Underwood...it was TOM PETTY. I've raised her right!

I was wondering if you might be willing to mention my raffle/fundraiser. I would NOT ask if it wasn't for a great cause. Plus, there are over 90 donated prizes to win totaling over $3000.00! And who doesn't like to win??

It's really a win-win for everyone. People get to help me meet my fundraising goal AND potentionally win big.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE clickover and enter my raffle!! You can truly win TONS OF PRIZES (totaling over $3000.00 - gift cards, Starbucks coffee maker, $600 in camping equipment, gorgeous jewelry and more!).

It's for a great cause….


6 years ago my Dad received a new heart.

This is my way of giving back.
