Why didn't I see this coming?


Of course, this was going to come back to bite me.

I turned 35 a few weeks ago which coupled with my American citizenship qualifies me for the worst job in the world.

To celebrate, PB and I took the kids to Disney Hollywood Studios for the day because all I wanted for my birthday was to take Doc for his first ride on the Rockin' Roller Coaster. All due respect to Space Mountain, but Rockin' Roller Coaster is Disney's only legitimate roller coaster. It goes 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and takes you upside down three times. And, oh yeah, Aerosmith is blasting in your ears during the entire time.

So for my birthday I introduced my son to the roll-over, the corkscrew and Steven Tyler.

Doc and I had a great time getting pumped up for the ride as we waited in line which wasn't hard to do because Aerosmith music was piped in throughout the queue. Since we only play the Star Wars soundtrack or worship music in the van, I was a little concerned about the lyrics Doc might pick up, but honestly, you really need a frame of reference to get the lyrics to "Walk This Way". You'll see in a minute why I'm desperately hoping that's true.

The ride went great. Doc's eyes were as big as baseballs when we shot out of the tunnel and he laughed the entire time. It was truly one of my favorite mom/son moments in our 7 years together.

Here's the two of us rocking out in front of the ride. We went on Halloween which will hopefully explain why Doc is dressed like a pirate. And why my skin looks like Casper the Friendly Ghost.


I'm such a cool mom.

And now let's watch as I go from cool mom to bad influence in 2 seconds flat.

Doc goes to a school for homeschoolers one day a week. The school is very much a Christian School. Very. Conservative. Let me repeat that: Conservative. Christian. School. Got it? In preparation for a special event Doc had to fill out an "All About Me" poster.

Favorite food? Pizza.
Favorite book? Anything about inventions.
Favorite toy? Legos.
Favorite movie? Star Wars (duh)
Favorite TV show? Sid the Science Kid

Favorite song? Walk This Way

I'm sorry, what???

Yes, tomorrow when every other kid shares about his favorite Veggie Tales song my son will be giving a shout-out to Aerosmith.

At least he spelled it correctly.

Yeah, I cut my teeth on Van Halen. I have not revealed that to my sons yet. They all ready have a great affinity for Trans-Siberian Orchestra rocking out riffs. It would be all over for me and my rep. But Happy Belated Birthday. Glad you enjoyed your day.

My hubby and middle son were all set to ride that ride last time we were there and it broke down! Have to say, my boys like Aerosmith - they get it from their Grandma!!

yo-yo guy was good!

we listened to those and then some... Black Sabbath even... though I can't anymore. I can take Aerosmith and even small doses of ACDC but not so much the harder stuff these days.
