the other day we were driving around. luckily, jovie enjoys my favorite radio station (DaveFM) and i’m not 100% held captive by her music class CD’s. (PS that is the best radio station… i think it was made for me! )
for months now, she’s been asking me who’s singing the songs. (and i’d like to brag that i can usually tell her!) her new question is, “mommy, who’s this band?”
also for months, she has been able to recognize a few jack johnson’s songs. we have the Curious George CD and he gets played a lot on DaveFM. so she always knew what to answer when i would get dramatic and then ask “*gasp* who is THIS??”. she always knew to say Jack Johnson.
a few times, i’d ignore it, and i would hear her pipe in the backseat when one of his songs would come on.
so the other day, after hearing for about 5 songs, “mommy—who’s THIS band?” each and every time… the Jack Johnson song “You & Your Heart” came on, and i turned to look at her and without my saying anything, she smiled this knowing, silly smile. she knew i was gonna ask her. and i knew she knew the answer…
so i played along. “hey, jovie? who’s THIS band?”
and without skipping a beat, and a giant grin on her face, she immediately responded………
we both enjoyed a literal LOL at a real-live joke!
