No boy bands for me

As my family left a science museum on our vacation, we passed hundreds of girls lining the streets near a local arena. They were dressed in fan gear - shirts, shorts, socks, buttons, jewelry, hats - from head to toe and were holding signs, banners and flags for One Direction. And despite the heat and that it was four hours before the concert was supposed to start, there they were.…

The struggle to stay on key

My son was singing in the bathtub. This is not new. What was new was what he was singing. There, echoing off the bathroom walls, in his slightly off-key, boys soprano came the classic lyrics of:

Who let the dogs out? Woof, woof, woof, woof-woof! Who let the dogs out? Woof, woof, woof, woof-woof!…

The Swifty Entrepreneur

I'm currently obsessed with Taylor Swift's newest hit, Style. I admit I wasn't always a fan but over the past months, I've changed my tune, no pun intended. Her music is peppy and catchy but what really impresses me is the way she's been able to transform her brand into a vocal empire.…

Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho! It's Back To Work I Go!

I have never been a model employee. From the age of 14 until I was 25, I've held around 12 jobs (I may be forgetting a couple). In each and every one of these positions, I would show up to work and do my job with one foot out the door. When I worked at Wal-Mart, I was forever filling up receipt tape with random notes to myself. Story ideas, song lyrics, scraps of poetry, random observations. I'd watch the customers for inspiration for character's that I would one day write about. I'd…

Mommy, what's this?

Today my son came into my room with this really strange disk thingy in one hand and a rectangular thingamajig in the other. At first I was so ready to yell at him, wondering why he's walking around the house with a smoke detector but as he got closer I realized it wasn't a smoke detector. The condition of it made it look like it could've been some type of artifact used by our grandparents, but it wasn't. At first, I myself…

I Was Latina In My Previous Life


When I was in fourth grade, I remember watching Saturday morning cartoons with my younger brother while my mom would sleep late. In between these cartoon shows, ABC began airing these four-minute music videos by a Puerto Rican group of teenage boys who called themselves Menudo. While my brother would point and laugh at these dark-haired pre-pubescent boys wearing matching outfits, shaking their little hips and singing Spanish songs about shopping malls and…

An instrumental way to improve your child's hearing...eventually

As any mother of a three-year-old knows, you spend a lot of your time asking your child, "Are you listening to me?" (The answer, by the way, is almost always 'no.' Children have much better things going on than listening to their mother.) One way to improve your child's hearing may be to give them music lessons.

Ended up in the right place accidentally!

Ever make plans to go somewhere, and it doesn't pan out the way you expected? Yet, where you do end up ends up being some how, uh, better? Well, yesterday my sister and niece came over for a visit and our intent was to check out a car show, because car shows are cool, lol. I had no idea it was canceled, so after driving all the way there and seeing the location deserted, I had the bright idea to just go to the Marina and enjoy…

The Awesome Power of Music

In my family, we are serious, music-loving fools.  Now, granted, none of us can actually play an instrument (well, not yet anyway!), but we sure as heck appreciate people who can.  Yep, we dig it so much that it's generally playing in our house in some form or fashion 24/7.…

Who Was Your First?

Who Was Your First?

Don't get your panties in a twist, I'm not asking about *that* first!  Who was your first favorite band/singer?  What was your first favorite song?  Do you remember?  I listened to a lot of music with my mom in the late 80s/early 90s.  I liked my mom's music a lot when I was little, and a lot of it I still really love (take Madonna, for example.  Loved her music back then, but not her new stuff).  It…
