Signs You're a Tuned-Out Mom

*Gaga still makes you think of a toddler instead of a woman with a zipper eye patch urging you to just dance.

*Black Eyed Peas are, alas, tragically unpopular with tweens.

*Eminem? A sheer delight, proven to inspire kids to act more politely.

*Vampire Weekend; was that time your 12-year-old saw Twilight, then
spent all her waking hours pining for Robert Pattinson (and all her bedtime hours afraid to go to sleep) my personal favorite

*The Pussycat Dolls sound like the perfect holiday presents for your 5-year-old niece

Enjoy your weekend everyone!
I'm enjoying mine with Gracie!! It's a vintage girls weekend! aka LeeAnn



  1. I'm definitely tuned out, Lis. These names sound alien to me, although I'm aware they are names of singers or bands that young teens are crazy about these days.

    It's a long way from the early 1970s icons like Beatles, Dave Clark 5, Bee Gees, Monkees and others our generation was crazy about when I was a teener myself! (You probably were just a toddler then...)

    Cute post, Lis.


  2. My teenagers just come out and tell me, "mom, don't." I was a high school teacher for so long, and have only been out of high school for three years. Yikes! Just in time to at least know Miley Cyrus should NOT be seen by my teens or tweeners these days, and that 80's stuff is back in style. Good for me, I still have a few originals in my closet! While we may be tuned out, having the kids around keeps us young(er)
