Channeling Johnny Cash

On the way to school today, Johnny Cash comes on the radio. I quickly claim my obvious parental duties, turn up the volume and formally introduce Liam to Mr. Cash. Liam clearly understood the importance of such an introduction and told me he wanted to see the singing. I explained this wasn’t a video, it was the radio. Liam continues to insist on “seeing” Johnny Cash sing. I tried to come up with a simplified way to explain the radio. It’s like hearing music on a video, Liam, but we can’t see them…we just hear it…(lame). Why is the kid making me come up with explanation like this in the morning? He’s listened to plenty of music on the radio, from CDs, from the ipod speakers in the living room, and on the ipad. The kid clearly recognized Johnny Cash for all the badass awesome that he is and needed a visual.

“PLEASE, Mommy, can’t we FaceTime with Johnny Cash??”

And that was the best moment of my day.

  1. I love the picture! your liltte boy is so handsome! He looks like he is having a good time too.I took some of mine at the pumpkin patch in Nashville, Tn. I was so disappointed in it at first (the kids didn’t mind) I had in my mind something like when you go pick strawberries! LOL. The last pumpkin patch I went to was like that! I mocked city folk on FB for this type of thing!if you stop by my blog to see our pictures, then just view the pic’s don’t read the write up’s. I have been sick and depressed and that is how my blog post turned out. BUT the pictures are good!
