We all know the song. We all know the video.
This is currently M’s favorite song. She LOVES this song. Whenever it comes on the radio, she has to stop what she’s doing to sing it.
Even if she’s just about to fall asleep, if she hears the song, she will sing it, eyes closed so that she can fall asleep right after the song is done. If she’s at the tail end of a nap and just barely waking up and she hears the song, she will sing it.
At home, will will project the video via Chromecast and she will wear her pink little dance tutu outfit. She will sing and dance along with Taylor. She just LOVES this song!
I have to admit, it’s pretty catchy. I’m not a fan of ALL of Taylor Swift’s music, but this one I can get behind. It’s got a fun loving tone to it.
It’s so cute listening to M sing the chorus. She’s even got the little rap part down!

When M was younger, we used to listen to child-appropriate music in the car. This meant that we would listen to CDs full of nursery rhymes and kid songs.
The music eventually transitioned into the Sofia The First soundtrack, and now it’s all about the Frozen soundtrack.
The music gets to be way too repetitive as we have to listen to the CDs over and over and over and over again. While it’s super cute to hear M sing along, we do get very tired of the songs.
So, we listen to the radio.
She used to never really sing to the songs on the radio, so we never really realized she knew what she was listening to..
We were wrong.
Here are a list of songs that we had no idea M knew enough to sing along to:
The Monster – Eminem feat. Rhianna
Roar – Katy Perry
Talk Dirty – Jason Derulo
I Don’t Care – IconoPop
Turn Down For What – Lil Jon
There are probably many more that I can’t think of the moment and many more that she will surprise us with singing along.
How did we find out that she knew some of these songs?
Hubby and I have a habit of absent-mindedly singing some of these songs at home while doing some things. Suddenly, M would finish the line to the song. This was especially true with “Talk Dirty.” I would hum the little musical part right before he sings, “Talk dirty to me..” I was humming it while I was working on cards at my craft table and M was playing in the room with me. Suddenly, M says, “Talk dirty to me..”
That was surprising and so funny. We had her do it over and over again.
What sort of pop songs do your kids surprise you with knowing??
For the first part of February, I will be counting down my 14 loves until I get to February 14th. This is a great way to get back to blogging daily again, and a way to make Valentine’s Day worth it this year!
I love music.
Music has always, always, always been a huge part of my life. From being a toddler learning how to work the record player, to now.. I’ve always sang. I’ve always danced. I’ve always associated songs with certain moments in my life. For example, I was listening to Debbie Gibson on Spotify. No, I’m not joking, I LOVE Debbie Gibson. Electric Youth came on and it brought back so many fun memories. I had to look up the actual Electric Youth album and listen to all the songs. That brought back the fun memories of hanging out with my cousins and taping our voices on a tape recorder.
Long title.. but these are the things that I realized about myself in these past few weeks.
It’s amazing what one learns about themselves during their daily commute from work.
1. I still remember every word of every song from the first High School Musical. AND it’s made me look up the entire soundtrack of High School Musical 2 to find that cool “ballad” sung by Troy and Gabriella. I may or may not have been belting out “Go My Own Way” on my own while working on craft projects.
2. I still LOVE Blink 182’s Dude Ranch CD. Still. LOVE.
3. I still know enough words to Kris Kross’ “Jump” to make me sound somewhat legit. Don’t ask me to do it on the fly.. but I can so keep up when singing along to the song. THAT was very surprising.
4. The Backstreet Boys STILL got it going on.. especially since Kevin Richardson came back..
That’s all I can think of right now.
I think that’s a good assessment of what I usually think about while I’m driving.
I think it also shows what kind of music keeps me going during those commutes. It keeps my drive interesting.
What goes on in your mind during your commutes to and from work?!
M currently enjoys hearing Alicia Keys “Girl on Fire.”
Here’s how we sing it together..
Me: (sings) This girl is on…
M: (sings) Maiah…
Maiah is M’s cousin.
Apparently.. this girl is on Maiah..
I keep telling Hubby that he should sing songs to Little M. Unfortunately, Hubby hasn’t really had much experience, or practice, singing to little kids.. here’s an example.
Hubby: Old MacDonald had a car..
Me: Old MacDonald had a FARM..
Hubby: He had a tractor!
At least he’s trying..

Last week, I was bombarded with a lot of negativity.
Some person was trying twist around his bad behavior to make it look like I was the culprit.
No, this has nothing to do with my boyfriend. He has been lovingly, supportive during this frustrating and trying time.
I have decided to erase all that negativity from my life, but that negative energy is deeply rooted in something I LOVE to do.. sing.
I have decided that it will NOT stop me from what I love to do.. especially where I do it.
I sing because it makes me happy. I sing because I serve the Lord. I sing because that’s my outlet of creative release. I sing and there is no one that can stop me from doing what I love.
In the past, I have been known to walk away from things when one person bothers me about it.. things that I have loved for so long.. I sacrificed just to stay away from the one person that causes me grief.
I am going to learn to not let that stand in the way of something I believe in deeply. One person versus touching the lives of so many with the gift of song..
That won’t stand in the way.. not anymore.
