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.
