Overheard during carpool this morning...

Ava: Corene, this looks like an "M"
Miles: M for MILES!!!
Ava and Corene: NO! It looks like an "N".
Miles: Oh! N for Notre Dame!!
Ava: And this looks like a "V"!!!
Miles: Oh, you mean "V" as in "Visa Halftime Report"?!

my kids like dat boom boom pow

I think I can speak with limited authority when I say that kids are taught to not like hip hop. We listen to EVERY kind of music in our home. We listen to classical music in our home WAY more than we listen to hip hop. But, all my kids prefer hip hop over every other genre of music. They love it. It makes them dance.

So, my theory? People naturally like hip hop if given the chance. Or, rather, MY people prefer hip hop.

What do you think? What's your experience?

three things jllian does which drive me nuts

1. Skips naps. This week, she only napped once, which was today. You know what happened on day four of no nap? swear words. (To be clear, not said to Jillian.)

2. Packs bags. If she gets her hands on a gift bag, grocery bag, backpack, or the like, she will fill it to the brim with random stuff from around the house.

3. Fakes inability. For instance, she acts like she can't get her boots on. Mind you, she wears the same boots she wore last year when she was one and a half and used to put them on ALL the time. In fact, this Summer, I had to hide them because she insisted on wearing them. And now???? faker.
