No drama, so some may be disappointed.
I went to a playgroup today and when I drove up, I was blasting The Police and singing along (horribly) to Roxanne. One of the newer moms was standing outside and after my older kid ran around the house with a bunch of other kids, she said something along the lines of how she couldn't imagine listening to Roxanne with her kids in the car. They're 6, 8 and 11, boys. She wasn't rude or judgey or weird about it. Just said that she only listens to "kid" music in the car and that she wouldn't want to have to explain what Roxanne is about. LOL. (My kid is 11. She knows what Roxanne is about. She loves that whole album, though she says Invisible Sun is boring.) I should have asked what she meant by "kid music", but I didn't. I just assumed it was that tedious alphabet stuff or, worse, Justin Beiber.
I was just curious, past 2 or 3 years old, do you limit what you play in the car when your kids are there? I played a lot of reggae when DD1 was little and made custom CDs for her. She liked Nina Simone and The Beach Boys and Johnny Cash. Yeah, we didn't listen to the other stuff, so my kid picked from what we listened to. Though she did develop quite a taste for Japanese girl bands, like Petty Booka Girls.
What do your kids listen to? What do you not allow (if anything)? What do you silently suffer through?
(my suffering music is Foster the People...I'm hoping that CD slips into a grate when I open the car door one day)
