So twelve years ago today....

I was at Woman's Hospital in labor with my oldest child. I can't believe he is now 12 years old. Here he is. Not a great quality photo. It was taken with his ipod. He is a pretty good kid. I am really proud of him.


And you know what is funny? This is his favorite song right now:


So this tells me that good music stands the test of time. So I busted out the Stones and Led Zepplin and he screwed his nose up. Really? He said that music sucks, mom. So he likes this song by The Killers, because his friends do, but not "It's only rock n' roll" by the Rolling Stones. This is peer pressure at it's finest. There is a ring leader that says what is cool and the rest just follow and agree. I tried to tell him, share this song with your friends and tell them like you mean it that this is a cool song and you might be surprised what happens.

I mean the Rolling Stones is one of the best rock bands ever. I admit they were a bit before my time, but none-the-less, awesome!

I just wish I could instill all of my knowledge in his brain right now. I just hate all the peer pressure that he is facing right now. But I guess I can just try my best to guide him and he will have to make his own decisions. I just secretly hope he does not follow in his mom's steps. I was a bit of a party girl back in the day.

I remember walking to a final exam at LSU at 0700 in the morning with my Rolling Stones concert t-shirt on singing "It's only Rock & Roll", still feeling the "exuberance" from the night before and needless to say, I did not pass the exam because I had just gotten home from New Orleans from the concert. It was AWESOME!! And I am pretty sure this was what was on my t-shirt along with a bit of gradeau from the streets of New Orleans.


So that is all for today. I have to finish cleaning the house for the big sleep over birthday bash tonight.

And I wanted to thank you all for the supporting comments from my previous post. Yes, I am a scrapbooker at heart and I have to admit I have been timid in the past about sharing the "real" me on my blog because I was afraid it would hurt my chances of being on this design team or that design team, well no more. And you know what is funny? Since I have been posting more than just scrapbooking posts, I have had a lot of more hits on my blog. Funny, how that happens. Thank you so much for your support.

P.S. Did you catch one of the songs that was played on David Letterman last night by the band, it was by the Stones, "_itch".
