Like many parents, I enjoy transcribing amusing bits of discourse that I have with my kids. Today’s tales relate to our ongoing quest to engage my children’s auditory development.
Me: Girls, this guy on the radio is Marvin Gaye. He’s very important to your musical education so listen up.
Big Girl: Is he gay?
Me: I don’t know. What’s gay?
Big Girl: When two dads marry each other.
Me: Well. Oh. Okay. Then he’s not.
Little Girl: Why does this band called Queen sound like all boys?
Big Girl: Mom, did you hear what that guy Usher just said in that song? He said, “I want a lady on the street and a freak in the bed.” Isn’t that funny, Mom?
Me: Erm, yea. Ha ha. Let’s change the station. How about some Glee?
Big Girl: Dad, I think you should be a DJ. And your DJ name should be DJ Dad.
