So last night....

...while we were watching the Grammy's (yes we were watching them, mainly because Arcade Fire was going to perform)

the young son was content to just play with blocks and eat his books (we are working on reading them instead of eating them)

then in the middle of Usher and The Beibs he got up and started flailing his arms around in attempt to dance (something he doesn't grace us with very often)

and I thought - "oh crappity, crap and so it begins with the crappy music liking"

when the song was over he went back to his block playing and book eating.

then Mumford and Sons came on followed by The Avett Brothers and he sat in rapt attention, taking in every note and lyric...

...and I thought "Hallelujah! There is hope after all!"

sadly...when Bob Dylan came on he went back to blocking and eating!

he went to bed before our favourite band played but we got to see them.

That's cute! Our Ethio kids have the beat, well, in between book eating anyway...

Funny. You are funny. Maybe give him a few months to listen to all the different music and form opinions?

Ha ha ha...I'll teach him to love Bob. No worries there.

My daughter's first fave song was a Lady Gaga song.

I despaired. I cried.

But now she's moved on to some ska and some classic 60s and some reggae and some sexy Michael Franti.

There is hope!

(I'm so glad she never gets to listen to pop music. Hopefully we can dodge that bullet until, say, junior high.)

haahaa! have to train him up to love your music. (but i guess, what kid ever does love their parents' music?)

Ahhhh Arcade Fire, SOOO good. Keep up the GREAT music and he will come around!!!! (he won't have a choice).

I feel so out of the loop... I'm back from my conference and I'm trying to catch up....

That's so great. At least Bieber didn't win a Grammy.

Mimi LOVES music too, she missed the Grammy's though.
