It is not fun when I think I am posting my blog update via iPad and it gives me a big fail. This is take two.
Any of you who know me, know I think our son is pretty cool. Oh, I know, 90% of all parents think their kids are cool, but I actually truly think MiniMac is cool. There are many reasons and just one of them is because his heart is Rock and Roll. Many of you have seen the previous videos, but those who don't know the true extent, here is proof:
We took him to see The Eagles last summer and he.loved.it. So imagine his reaction when we told him we were leaving for Florida this am. For a week. For sun, fun, the beach, the pool, Disney, AND taking him to see Bon Jovi. Yes, Bon Jovi. Sunday night he will be rocking out to Living on a Prayer, You Give Love a Bad Name (and no he does not even know what that means. Yet) and We Got it Going on. And while he may not be Rocknig the Casbah. He WILL be rocking the Amway Center Sunday Night. How do I know? Because of these:
and my favorite:
Yes, he has to wear special noise reduction headphones. No, it doesn't impact his fun at all. And even if you like kids as much as you like shingles, you have to admit, this is pretty cool. We teach him all about the classic rock and roll. And our house will never be struck with Beiber fever.
Oh, he is excited about Mickey. But he is THRILLED about Bon Jovi. In fact, last night, MiniMac "picky eater" decided he would decline the invite to once again try something new I made for dinner. So when he looked at it skeptically, and asked what it was, I replied, "oh, a recipe I got from Jon Bon Jovi's Mommy."
"Really," he inquired.
"Really," I responded.
ANd he ate an entire bowl. Which he NEVER does. My first thought was, "You have got to be KIDDING me."
My second thought, "Damn, you are one powerful woman Jon Bon Jovi's Mom." But it worked. And no, I don't feel bad for lying.
Now, I am in Florida. About to hit the pool. And have my first vacation cocktail. Be back on the 23rd! Have a fantastic weekend and week.
