Mama Kats Writers Workshop Prompt
The prompt I chose is…
Describe a moment where you or your child lost a part of childhood (realizing Santa isn’t real, etc.)
Sofia (my 5 yr old daughter) and I were driving along, having a good time running our errands. It was the last day I had left with her before she started kindergarten (which is a whole other blog post!)
We are listening to the radio and singing together to all the hip, top 40 songs. Demi Lovato, Justin Bieber, One Direction, you get the point.
Then there was a new song. A cute catchy song with a great dance beat and some whistling.
“Whistle Baby, Whistle Baby something something something”
and then there was actual whistling.
This was now our favorite song. In Macys, while looking at wallets, Sofia bellows out “Whistle baby, whistle baby”
In the grocery store, deciding on if I want pasta or steak for dinner, again “Whistle baby, whistle baby”
How cute!!! She sure does love her music.
At the dinner table that night…
“Dad, I have a new song, it is Whistle baby”
My husband looks at me, and I just give him “The Look” like, “I don’t know, but it’s cute.”
Bath time, again, Whistle baby. Bed time, Whistle Baby, Whistle Baby.
The following day, Sofia is still singing Whistle Baby….so I decided “Come on Sofia, lets look up the video.”
Holy Mother Mary of God!!!!!!!
So, to make a long story short, for the past 24 hours I allowed my 5 year old daughter to sing a song about blow jobs!!!!!!!!!
Someone needs to revoke my card now, because I suck (no pun intended!)
Sofia and I are watching the video online. I could not believe what I was seeing, what my 5 yr old daughter saw, and yes, I believe in those few minutes, my innocent little girl saw things she should have never seen this young….if ever!
It was only after seeing the video I realized Flo Rida sung it (which would have been my first clue had I known!)
Why? Why did I think this song was actually about whistling?
If anyone wants to contribute to Sofia’s therapy, let me know now…..it looks like she may need it……thanks to her mother!!!!

HAHAHAHA! I am dying over here!
I have listened to that song countless times and have never once got that it was about BJ's.
I can only imagine the look of shock and horror as you watched the video.
BAHAHAHA! (laughing WITH you not at you, promise!)
OMG! Part of me wants to youtube the video and hear the song…but I think I'll refrain. You've given me enough mental image. Maybe you should saturate her brain with a bunch of dream come true memories to cancel this moment, like ice cream every night for a week, a trip to Disneyland, oh and get her a pony, that should do the trick.
I had never seen the video but I kind of figured it out. (Considering the artist.) The kids all do love it. A girl at my daughter's middle school performed it on her recorder during a performance. It's crazy. It got so hard for me to listen to it in the car that I even tried to convince myself that it wasn't about that. Now I just turn the channel. It's just warped when it could have been a perfectly cute song.
OH this is so funny, something I totally would have done too. I always miss the actual meaning of stuff like that. HIlarious!
I have only heard the chorus, so I don't know what else he's saying that might allude to it being about anything other than whistling (but had I known the artist, I too would have suspected it was code). What I hate is when a song is kiddish enough, catchy enough, but filled with innuendo (like my girls singing with Beyonce about his “ego”: it's too big, it's too wide, it's too strong, it won't fit. Ego. Right.
But I am giggling at you looking up the video. My husband learned that the hard way with another song, went to YouTube, nothing but ass shakeage.
Great one Jen!
Bwhahaha! Don't feel too bad. I used to sing those song in the car, I thought the kids weren't listening, when my son started saying, “Blow my whistle, baby! Blow my whistle…”
Yeah, that song is now blocked and we don't talk about it.
Great post. Over from Mama Kat's 🙂
HA HA HA! That happens to us all!
Oops! I haven't heard the song, but am familiar with the artist, well, hopefully you can just never bring that one up again, or come to terms with the fact that there will be more of those 'oops' where that came from!
Bahahaha … sorry but that's funny. Good thing you looked it up. Don't be so hard on yourself. It happens.
Oh, Boy!!!!! It's funny but not funny! Unless we screen everything, which we can't, it happens a lot. My kids are 19 and 21. I've had MANY epic failures as well!
LoL. yes Gina, i am reading your post now….”special hug” I believe I spit my vodka out when I read that!
Now I feel I am going to have to look EVERYTHING up! Even cute Justin Bieber is taking some risk in his videos.
If you have not heard the song…..count yourself lucky. Although it is a cute catchy song, once you know the lyrics, and your kid is singing it, it changes everything!
Emily, I am trying to find your blog but I do not know what I am doing! Can you send me a link???
Bwahahahaaaa! That is a classic – and totally something I would do. In fact, the Hub makes one of us screen all youtube videos BEFORE the Kidzilla watches them. Great post. 😉
Google the lyrics or watch the video, then say 5 hail mary's!
Do NOT you tube the video, repeat……Do NOT you tube the video, you will thank me later.
Agree!!!! it is a catchy beat, fun dance song, and they just ruined it!
Do you remember the old song “My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard….” Yeah, I honestly thought they were talking about a milkshake.
Oh my goodness!!! How funny!! Thank you for the warning – I'll try to have my daughters steer clear of that one. :0
