Do. Not. Sing. That. 

Having two teenage sisters is often a great asset for Kate.  Her vocabulary is huge.  The sentences she says often amaze me.  However, there is a dark side to all this knowledge…

Teenage sisters listen to pop music.  And pop music doesn’t always have the best lyrics – especially for a 3 year old to sing.  Recently Brooke taught Kate all the words to Gwen Stefani’s “Holla Back” girl.  I live in fear that she sings this at preschool.

Now, her latest is Hailee Steinfeld’s song “Starving.”  It’s a cute song.  Very catchy.

But when you listen to the the lyrics coming out of a 3 year old, it takes on a different meaning.  Here’s a little exert:

I didn’t know that I was starving till I tasted you
Don’t need no butterflies when you give me the whole damn zoo
By the way, by the way, you do things to my body
I didn’t know that I was starving till I tasted you

Yep.  She can sing it all.  ALL……

I know I should censor the music the big girls listen to while around Kate.  But honestly, I get lazy.  It’s a lot of work to constantly monitor what may be okay for teenagers to see/listen to, versus what a 3 year old should not.  I feel like I have to be the police and am constantly walking into rooms and saying “turn that off,” all day.

Brooke is my least favorite today for teaching Kate all these songs.

Daily tally:

Avery 0/0, Brooke +1/-1, Kate 0/0

    1. I often feel quite guilty about keeping a tally – feels very crude and unfair sometimes. But being that the girls know nothing about the blog, it makes me feel better : ) Thanks for reading!!

  1. Adorable pictures! She looks like she is really hamming it up for you.

    I kind of feel the same when I’m at my job. I do evening care for 4 fantabulous children, aged 7-12, and I’m facing the same problem. Maybe not so much with music (but I’m sure that will come!) but with language. The eldest is in a school that is grade 7-12. It’s an uncommon situation, but there she is just turned 12 and at school every day with 18-year-olds. The grade 7’s have their own wing but they still have contact with the older students. She brings home the “grown up” language/attitude and it’s starting to rub off on her younger siblings.
