5 Year Old Say What……….
February 20, 2008
My son enjoys my new MP3 player almost as much as I do, and he will often ask to listen to it. He is espically fond of the Hannah Montana song, and the next track, “Please Don’t Stop The Music.”
Recently, I was driving and he was listening to it, when he started telling me about the “Suicidal” song that was on. I racked my brain trying to figure out what on earth he was talking about, and quite honestly, I was shocked to hear such a negative word coming from the mouth of my baby. I prodded him, trying to find out what he was listening to, and asking him if he had ever heard anyone talking about suicide.
I made him skip the song, pondered the incident for a few more minutes, then put the event out of my mind entirely.
Saturday evening I listened to his 2 favorite tracks (don’t judge me, Hannah Montana is catchy), and immediately after my baby’s fave’s Sean Kingston’s, “Beautiful Girls” played. I was groovin along, then it hit me…….”you’ve got me suicidal……….suicidal………………suicidal”.
It’s amazing how you see things differently when you have children.
