My son and I were in the car today, stuck in a bit of last minute vacation shopping frenzy. I had the radio set on a mix music station, and the Boy turned it up when OneRepublic’s Secrets played. He and I swayed slightly in silence to the song.
The stereotyped belief is that parents don’t normally tolerate their children’s music. Today, I was reminded this is not always true. This family listens OneRepublic, techno music, U2, Gorillaz and Muse together with enjoyment. I was also reminded that my Mother adored Elvis, and I bop around to his music today.
I am also grateful that my son does not protest when I play 80’s or 90’s music.
