We watched Gabrielle Cilmi sing on Idol last night.
Ella – I really like her. She sings beautiful.
Ella – Am I still your friend?*
Me – Of course you are still my friend! You are Ella and I am mama. We like different things and that’s a good thing!
Ella – But when I am big… when I am a mama, I will not like this music.
Me – Maybe you will. When I was a kid I listened to different music. They made different music then than they do now. So you might still like this music when you’re a grown up.
Then I suggested I’d buy her the cd. Groan.
*I swear, I have no idea where these kind of remarks come from. I didn’t think I came across as that judgemental!
