Magical Earbuds

By

My kids like Kidz Bop.  I do not.  I think that there are many parents who could also write those two sentences.

:::sigh:::

So, I decided that I would buy each of the kids an MP3 player.  I found some on clearance at Target (they even have Spongebob on them!).  Fifteen bucks a piece.  I brought them home and loaded Kidz Bop on each of them.  They’ve been bopping around the house doing this:

If you couldn’t figure it out, that’s the Kidz Bop version of Pink’s “So What.”  So, the MP3 player doesn’t exactly keep the house quiet, but I get to hear Becca and Chloe’s voices instead of the kids from Kidz Bop.

HOWEVER…….

When we were getting in the car yesterday (and they had their MP3 players with them) I realized that they could plug those little ear buds right into the DVD players.  They got very excited, and decided to watch some Scooby Doo.  And then the magic happened.

I didn’t hear any fighting, I didn’t hear any Scooby Doo.  I got to pick a radio station FOR MYSELF and I actually GOT TO HEAR IT.  It was the most quiet car ride I’ve had with the kids.  Ever.  I felt like I was twenty five again.

I think I’m ready for a road trip :)

    Rock star Chloe! She looks like little Heather but she sounds different. She goes to her own beat. This is Mom stealing Ray’s.

    I freaking HATE Kids Bop. It is blasphmony (sp?) There is no need for any adult to be subjected to annoying as shit kids singing songs that were perfectly good. Now, I do object to them listening to questionable lyrics at very young ages. This is why I have to put each song on my son’s iPod instead of as an entire list. Amazing how few songs I could share with him . . . Ummmmm . . .
