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!!!!
