Gold Digger

The other day in the car the song Gold Digger came on. For those who live a life blissfully unaware of Kanye West, the lyrics go "Now I ain't sayin' she's a gold digger, but she ain't messin' with no broke niggas" or something along those lines.

Charming and I'm sure I'm up for a Parent of the Year award for allowing my kids' precious brains to be sullied by Kanye. But they like it and it is rather catchy.

So little kid piped up from the back. "Mom?"

"Yep?"

"I'm thinkin' I'm gonna marry a gold digger! 'Cuz then we could both be finding lots of gold and that sounds pretty fun!"

"Yes, good plan," I agreed, because that was the easiest way to go. "Just make sure she loves your mother."

(That's the one piece of advice I consistently bring up when discussing future spouses, gold digger or not.)

Make sure she loves your mother is a piece of advice I give to my 6 year old son as well! It is a catchy song by the way. If it makes you feel better, my son was singing "Red Solo Cup" on his way to kindergarten last week.

Oh, I hear songs from when I was a kid and go, "Oooooooohhhhhhhh! THAT'S what it meant!" I had no idea.

That song is dubbed in the UK to, "she ain't hanging with no broke bros." It doesn't flow too well. We're not allowed to hear racism, but apparently all the sex and drugs stuff is fine. So, you know, it can't be TOO bad for your kids, right...?

I'm babbling now. Somebody stop me.

My little brother use to sing the Greese Lighting song, because we watched Grease all the time. Imagiine a 5 year old with a lisp singing it's a real pussy wagon...

I remember witnessing a little kid getting out of a car belting out the French bit of lyrics to "Lady Marmelade"...

it happened years ago and it still has me and my hubby in stitches whenever the song is on...

kids are fun.

Great blog! Stumbled across it while trying to figure out what to do about my son's mystery ailment that is causing his mouth to hurt. Your kids (and you) are very funny.

I enjoyed and could relate to your parenting stories, and have a sense of what we've got to look forward to. (We have a three year old and a new addition due in November

There's always something cleansing about how literally kids take words.

I think my son was about 3, and Chingy's "Right Thurr" came on the radio. The line, "I sho' wouldn't mind hittin' that from the back" plays, and son pipes up "it's not nice to hit people from the back OR the front."
