We’re finally at the age where Charlotte is no longer requesting the Hot Dog song in the car and is now requesting music that I enjoy as well. There are still times when I have to listen to the PJ Masks soundtrack on repeat, but for the most part she’s made herself a running playlist of songs she likes. Here are the current favorites:
- Paper Rings by Taylor Swift
- You Need to Calm Down by Taylor Swift
- Get Another Boyfriend by the Backstreet Boys
- Ooh, Aah, Just a Little Bit by Gina G
- Truth Hurts by Lizzo
- Good as Hell by Lizzo
Currently, Lizzo is the front runner. Yesterday I saw her playing with her Barbies going “WHY MEN GREAT TIL THEY GOTTA BE GREAT!” She knows most of the words to Truth Hurts. I mean, is it the best song for her to listen to? Probably not. But she proudly sings “I JUST TOOK A DNA TEST TURNS OUT I’M 100% THAT” and stops singing, because she KNOWS. So it isn’t like this is the worst thing to happen in the history of parenting. I also find it very inspiring when she starts in with “I do my hair toss, check my nails, baby how you feelin’? FEELING GOOD AS HELL!” She sings it with such conviction. She IS feeling good as hell. She tosses her hair AND checks her nails!!! Lizzo is good for the children.
In March she’s got her week to be student of the week, and one of the days she gets to bring in her favorite song. I will die if she chooses a Lizzo song. I’ll have to find a clean version. I’m the best mom.
