Yes, it's my own fault. WHY did I think the kitsch factor of getting that Brady Bunch Have a Sunshine Day CD for a dollar at the thrift store, and adding it to my list, was a good idea? The songs didn't come up much---no individual song does. But yesterday, it played. Yes, "Time to Change", the immortal song from the episode where Peter's voice is changing. Here's a video of it, if you've never had the pleasure... Time To Change. Janey was electrified. The second it was over, she screamed out "TIME TO CHANGE!" And it continued, 6 lovely more times before we mercifully reached home.
And of course, I could have been selfish and not added it to her list. But in my determination to let her live as normal a life as possible, I put it on. Kids like music their parents don't. It's part of life. I've listened to more Black Sabbath in my life than any middle-aged woman should, thanks to William's fandom. And so, Janey deserves her one taste.
As I write this, the music plays on. It burns, oh how it burns. But Janey loves it, and I love it that she loves it, even if I don't.
