Go do yours!  Fun! (Okay.  Perhaps mildly entertaining.)

So before I start this cute kid story, perhaps I should give a short explanation.  When the boys are exceptionally good at school, we stop by Dollar General (Yeah!  The dollar store, baby.  Nothing's too good for my kids!) for a "treat".  Many times, Ethan gets "Dots" which are like jellybeans, sort of.  They're a gummi candy.  (I find them nauseating, but, to each their own.  

In any case, we are driving home from school everyone's in a good mood, Colin's sunroof is open, and I Love Rock and Roll, by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts is cranked up, 'cause that's how I roll.


(Ethan and Aaron are in the back playing air guitar and singing)



I had to pull over in a parking lot I was laughing so hard.  I then had to explain what a "jukebox" was and why one would put a "dime" in it.

As I have stated before, your kids rock!!!

How can you NOT rock out to Joan Jett!?
seegrim: wicked witchseegrim on March 13th, 2008 11:59 pm (UTC)
Oh, Ethan. What a cutie pie. Seriously.

Um. The Wizard of Oz? Well, we've finally found something we don't agree on. I cannot abide the Wizard of Oz. I've actually been meaning to do a LJ post on the topic! Must post sometime soon.

It is a true testament to the depth of my love for you that I don't de-friend you right this minute.

seegrim: Meow!seegrim on March 14th, 2008 12:14 am (UTC)
Hopefully we can muddle through this and come out the other side with a stronger friendship than before.

If not, please give proper warning as I don't know if I can survive another online friend going weird on me.
Carrie Leigh: hugcarrie_leigh on March 14th, 2008 12:22 am (UTC)
I would NEVER.

Never. Ever.


seegrim: i like youseegrim on March 14th, 2008 12:27 am (UTC)
*hugs you and means it*

Did I ever tell you about the time I sang 'I Love Rock and Roll' along with (apparently) an inappropriate dance number and got a talking to at Girl Scout camp? *falls off chair laughing*
Carrie Leigh: bad examplecarrie_leigh on March 14th, 2008 01:00 am (UTC)
*cackles LOUDLY*

No. You haven't I'd remember that.

But it begs the question: What do the girl scouts deem inapproprate?
seegrimseegrim on March 14th, 2008 01:16 am (UTC)
Um. Apparently a bit too much hip rolling? And the words. I don't think they liked the lyrics. Old bats.

*snerk* I like this story a lot, seegrim. Carrie, your kids are adorable... I can't wait til Efrayim says funny things like that, in ways that can be related to my online friends. All of his funnies now are done physically or with tone of voice.

Love both you ladies to pieces!
seegrimseegrim on March 14th, 2008 01:47 am (UTC)
Hello, Nicole!

Miss you! :)
Carrie Leigh: D loves Gcarrie_leigh on March 14th, 2008 02:13 am (UTC)
Oh, I'll bet he's precious.

I miss you, too!

You cookie-selling hussy.

OH yeah. That's me! *giggles*

Ethan rules. That is all.
Carrie Leigh: Ethan=Little Dracocarrie_leigh on March 14th, 2008 12:23 am (UTC)
I think so, too!

Dots! I'd buy those and try to loosen my already loose tooth or even better make it come out. Surprised every tooth in my mouth wasn't pulled out eating those.

Joan Jett!!! You go girl and lol at the "subsitute" words.
Carrie Leigh: Ethan and Aaroncarrie_leigh on March 14th, 2008 02:12 am (UTC)
Maybe I'll try that for son #2. He has had a loose tooth for a MONTH. Poor kid. :)
Jo-Anne Stormjo_anne_storm on March 14th, 2008 02:54 am (UTC)
*cackles* OK, that might be the best cute kid story EVAH!
dL: giggledieloreley on March 14th, 2008 03:10 am (UTC)
Your children WIN. Why can't Daniel rock out to music other than Veggie Tales? (Admittedly, Larry the Cucumber is cool, but...)

Can I keep them?
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on March 14th, 2008 01:17 pm (UTC)
'The Hairbush Song' is also in their repertoire. We just don't listen in the car. *g*
(Deleted comment)
Carrie Leigh: Chicago - happycarrie_leigh on March 14th, 2008 01:19 pm (UTC)
I had to stop quickly. That's not what you want to tell the guy you crashed into!

"But listen, he sang the wrong words to Joan Jett! It was hysterical!"

Lauradream_mancer on March 14th, 2008 05:10 am (UTC)
*random* You lived in Conway? No way! Awesome!

My 8 year old cousin Cody tried singing this (the Britney Spears version. *gags* What was his father thinking?) and he couldn't understand the words so it was "I love rock n roll!" *mumbles* PUKEBOX BABY!"

Not very appropriate, but highly entertaining.
Carrie Leigh: bad examplecarrie_leigh on March 14th, 2008 01:20 pm (UTC)

It just goes to show that generation has absolutlely NO clue what a jukebox is. :)

Pukebox, indeed.

*laughs some more*

I just love explaining all those 'old' things to my kids, like jukeboxes and televisions that don't have remote controls *smirk*
Carrie Leigh: record/Cassandrecarrie_leigh on March 14th, 2008 01:14 pm (UTC)
"But Mom, what did you do to change the channel?"


*horrified gasp*
dragonsangel68dragonsangel68 on March 14th, 2008 01:19 pm (UTC)
We actually had one for about six months when Mitch was about five (ours blew up and we borrowed an old one from the in-laws for a while). We'd get up most mornings to find Mitch and Tori sitting in front of a blank screen, because they couldn't figure out how to turn it on *sniggers*
Carrie Leigh: vintage winkcarrie_leigh on March 14th, 2008 01:22 pm (UTC)
Ah, the good old days.

Our first remote had a cord attached to the TV. Oooh. High tech!
dragonsangel68dragonsangel68 on March 14th, 2008 01:25 pm (UTC)
We skipped straight to a real remote, because there was nothing wrong with the old set for years, so we were made to get off our backsides to change the channel... The tragedy!
