A 13 year old trapped in a 3 year old's body.

You know how teenagers like to do their own thing? For example they get their headphones, listen to their music, and totally ignore you for the entire dinner. Well, as it turns out, we apparently have one of those teenagers right here among us. Chase is a music junky just like his father. Not only does he love music, but the louder it is, the better it is. You routinely hear the words, "Make it louder" in our vehicle while driving down the road.

Months ago we upload the Cars and Shrek 2 soundtrack on to the iPod for Chase's listening pleasure. Now, while I do enjoy hearing a good song a time or two, hearing that same good song 10 times in the same day can get a little old. Last night I decided to upload The Doodlebops and Dan Zanes on to the iPod in hopes that we could maybe persuade our little guy to expand on his favorite tunes. Sure enough it worked. However, when we were going to meet Duchess for dinner tonight Chase wanted to wear the headphones and the iPod into Joe's Crab Shack. I agreed thinking that he would promptly hand them back over as soon as he saw Duchess and we sat down. Boy did I get that one wrong. I don't think the child said more than two words the entire evening. I'm not sure whether to be thrilled that I perhaps found a way to entertain my toddler and keep him quiet or if I should be offended that he would rather listen to his music than talk with us. I swear, it was like having a teenager.

. . . .
Now, I am excited and pleased to announce that we are going to Disney World. I believe that this topic deserves it's very own post, so I'll safe it for later.... but I just had to get it out!
