Olivia has developed her own taste in music. Much like mine, it is absolutely terrible. I like all the poppy stuff that has normal adults rolling their eyes. She sings all kinds of top-40 songs while she plays with her princesses. And every car ride with Olivia starts by listening to Party Rock Anthem, complete with putting our hands up and yelling "shake that, every day I'm shuff-uff-uh-ling."
I'd like to tell you that I hate that song and that I only do it because my teeny tiny dictator threenager rules my entire existence. But I love it and I don't care who knows it. If it is wrong I don't want to be right. Etc.
It is really funny to hear her singing in the back seat of the car. She totally does the whole, make up your own words or just sing one really long syllable when you don't know the words. Sometimes she asks me to listen to a song by the title that she has made up for it - like, "MAH, you got dat song Love Me on your phone?" And by that she means "As Long As You Love Me" by Justin Bieber.
She's got the fever, I guess.
If she hasn't made up a title, she sings a little ditty until I guess what the hell she is talking about. Here is the latest ditty mystery (dittystery?):
"MAH! Play dat song, don't lose your baby, idiot, idiot, idiot."
First I thought she was talking about me losing Adelle. So I'm all, the baby is upstairs sleeping, jerkstore, now leave me alone so I can pluck my eyebrows. But then she clarified that she wanted the song talking about the lost baby, which made me feel like I am, in fact, an idiot, idiot, idiot.
This whole lost baby idiot thing has been going on for days. Today, I had the music on demand channel on TV and Olivia lost her shit. Because finally, FINALLY!, she was hearing the song that she wanted me to play on my phone. The one that goes, "don't lose your baby, idiot, idiot, idiot."
Bruno Mars, "It Will Rain."
I get the "don't lose your baby" part - "Cause they'll be no sunlight, If I lose you, baby." But the idiot part cracks me up. What the hell, little kid?
Three year olds are funny. If you're bored, you should really consider getting yourself one.
