The Sweet Escpae

The Wild Child, age 7, has decide he really digs Gwen Sefani's, The Sweet Escape. Yesterday, he was on deck warming up for his turn at bat during his baseball game, taking mean swings at the imaginary pitch while he sang "If I could be sweet, I know I've been a real bad girl"...

Meanwhile the Brainiac, age 10, went to swim team practice - something new for him - and was demoted to the younger age group, so now he's with the 8 year olds. The tears welled up and over his eyes last night as he told me of his humiliation. Poor guy. Maybe he'll smoke his Piano Performance in the Talent Show at his school tonight and that will be some consolation. He's head and shoulders above other kid's his age. You can't be good at everything, I told him. I couldn't come up with anything better.

Sweet Escape was so bad anyway, and then Akon (who does those ridiculous "Woo-Hoos") was charged in Jamaica for acting like he was having sex with a 15 year old girl on stage during a concert (clothed, but you get the picture). Sonny Boy was wanting to hear the song, and I said Akon was off-limits and then told him why. He was sufficiently grossed out so that he doesn't listen to him anymore.

Poor Brainiac - we all have our humiliations - I hope he'll be okay. Life's a bitch sometimes - but you hate for your 10 year old to learn that. And I think you came up with good insight for him.

I know you'll call when the phone is better!
