Ain't that somethin?

I missed Nathan when he was in school. I know parents treasure their down time for the most part (and I did) but today we had to go into The Big City to hit Sam's and other assorted runnin around. He happily climbed into Sophie (the Malibu) with his Wall-E Lego Robot and promptly asked me to please play some Sugarland. I decided it would be fun to call up my favorite radio station and my favorite dj and ask her to play him some Sugarland. So I called up Kelly Garrett over at 96.9 and asked her to play "All I Want To Do". I explained that me and kidlet were headed to TBC and that Nathan is especially fond of Sugarland. She happily played it for him, and he was so super excited to hear his Mama on the radio and to hear the dj say his name. Coolest.hick.kid.ever.

You see, Nathan has many loves...many, many, many loves. In fact, I can think of at least two dozen things that are his "favorite". He loves dinosaurs and legos and trains and watermelon and ice cream and snuggles and driving to The Big City and listening to country music. Among his country music "favorites" are anything by Sugarland, Neon Moon and Lost And Found by B+D and Little Red Rodeo by Colin Raye. Clearly he has his Mama's taste in music....except for that whole liking Nine Inch Nails thing. I can't stand NIN.

Anywho, I said all that to say that I really missed my guy. I like having him holding my hand in the store enthusiastically offering to help and asking "what's next?". I like hearing his running commentary on everything from airplanes to cheese (loves airplanes, does not enjoy cheese)....and I especially love when he wants to rock out to some of my favorite music!

This particular little ditty is my absolute favorite.....on the Love On The Inside cd (I have too many "favorites"...wonder where Nathan gets that from....) Nathan declares it's his favorite too...

...along with this one....

"I'm slow to trust but I'm quick to love, I push too hard and I give too much. I ain't sayin I'm perfect, but I promise I'm worth it. Now I'm standing here in front of you. Tell me, boy, what you gonna do? Cuz my name's Maggie Duran, I said ain't that somethin? If you want it, come and get it. If you want it, come and get it, but understand you take me as I am."
