We are a family that LOVES music. In fact, Paul and the boys just recorded their own song for me and made a CD so I can listen in the car to their lyrics and incredible rapping skills! When Jayden was younger, we would set up our living room like a concert hall. We would love watching him dress up, wear a mic headset (“like the REAL singers, mom!”) and usually he’d let me introduce him as his favourite artist (the crowd clearly loved his Justin Bieber concerts!). He’d shake the audience member’s hands and lip-sync and dance like he saw them do on YouTube!
I grew up listening to music with my own parents and performing all the hits of that era! My childhood home often had The Beatles, Anne Murray and Neil Diamond (like many of us who grew up in the 70s and 80s). I remember finding my parent’s old 45s and recording my own mixed tapes to listen toon my walkman during long family road trips in the summers. I knew all the words to the “oldies” and would often catch my parents singing along as we drove. If we were lucky in those days, they’d grab each other and we’d get to see how REAL dancing was done in the 60s! They had their own style and moves together and I loved to giggle and watch them tear up the living room rug.
