Has iTunes changed your life? We’re obsessed with it at our house.
Every child has their own playlist (Mary’s reads: ‘peony’s songs’) and they love finding the music that speaks to them and then playing it in the kitchen ALL. DAY. LONG. How many times can you stand, “Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier…”
Gabriel is especially adept at it and whenever I say, “I like that song!” he rushes to the computer and adds it to my playlist. A passing boat at Lake Powell was playing “We Will Rock You.” He stored the name in his little head, clicked on to the iTunes store when we got home and asked, “How do you spell we-will-rock-you?”
Unsurprisingly, Ben is our greatest source of new music. He always has some new discovery to share. It’s not uncommon for me to come down to my computer in the morning and find a little stack of quarters by the keyboard that signal someone bought a new song last night.
I pocketed the quarters yesterday morning and clicked on the newly purchased song, “Lucky” by Jason Mraz.
Goodness me– it’s beautiful. I pulled Erik into the kitchen and made him dance with me.
On about the fifth repeat, Ben looked up from the couch. “Mom? Dad? Can you tone it down a bit?”
I refunded his money. 😉
