Considering my last post was about music, you would assume that I have an Ipod. You should see the horror on my 12 year old son's face when I pull out my CD's or even worse, my cassette tapes. What would he say if he saw some of my old albums? I remember sitting on my bed looking at album covers as my record player (my son just winced) played one of my favorite albums. Apparently, I'm a music dinosaur around here. Did you see that recent news story about the 13 year old who was trying to figure out how to work a Walkman? I think Yahoo referred to this device from my childhood as "ancient". What would that kid say if he saw those huge 8 tracks that my father used to have in our 1970's station wagon?
So this dinosaur will take the plunge and get an Ipod. I think I'll probably have it in the docking station most of the time. I don't know if I would use the headset too much. I like my music to fill the room.
You ever notice how a bunch of people wearing Ipods are all bouncing along to their own song. Since I enjoy live music, I'm a little saddened to see music becoming such a solitary experience. I understand why it is necessary, but I love being surrounded by a group of people all enjoying the same song. Our excitement and enjoyment for the music becomes contagious and enriches the listening experience even more.
I love that Beatles' song from my last post. My son was laughing at how many times I went back to my blog to listen to it. Music is a good moment to moment Mommy vitamin to help me get through my hectic day! The summer just started, and I am happily exhausted trying to keep my kids happy and busy. The days seem to be getting longer and longer. That can be good or bad depending on the kid excitement/tantrum barometer on a particular day.
The Ipod Shuffle is so small. I'm afraid of losing it. I hope it doesn't wind up in my son's Lego table or in my junk drawer. I'll have to wear it on a chain around my neck :) I better run to those July 4th sales to get an Ipod this weekend. Right now, I'm listening to some crazy cartoon banter, two boys begging me for pizza and my so called quiet dishwasher humming along. I think I'll have to get used to the Ipod headset.
