sweet child of mine
I married a man who loves butt rock.
We landed an electric guitar a couple years ago that was given to us so graciously by greg and emily. Since then the butt rock passion has come to the next level in our home.
Chay can play the beginning riff of Guns and Roses "Sweet Child of Mine" like a mad man. That is however the only part of the song he knows how to play...but do you honestly need to know how to play any other part of that song??? I mean seriously.
So sometimes songs pop into my head throughout the day...and I think Chay also had the Guns and Roses CD playing when we went for a Costco run tonight. Anyway so tonight I was singing "Sweet Child of Mine" to Kenzie, (who is, by the way, a sweet child of mine) while cleaning up the kitchen. Minutes later I heard Kenzie's own attempt at singing "Sweet Child of Mine"- on perfect tune and even with the high pitch Axl Rose voice she sang, "hey hey sweet Child of God!!!!" -It was so funny, so random, so perfect, so three-year-old of her to sing that...
So now...the lyrics have suddenly changed for the better in this household...Guns and Roses have now become a spiritual beacon in our family...and you know...as long as the principle is being taught...- just please keep our "Sweet Child of God" song at home Kenzie, no requests for it in primary singing time please...not exactly the most reverent approach to learning our divinity through music.
Family picture: This is the only recent family picture I have...Hey Tiffani...I think you have a better shot of this...where we are all actually looking at the camera besides just me?????
We are in desperate need of a real family picture. I am so excited to see JANNA in September...
life is good...keeping busy...I'm redoing or finally finishing the master bedroom...and it is taking forever of course. Walls are painted, closet doors are hung and molding/trim was nailed in tonight...the living room is our new bedroom....what a mess! pictures soon to come!!!
