In November 2011 I climbed aboard the gratitude train and posted a Facebook status each day in regards to what I was thankful for. I so enjoyed doing it that I decided to bring our family blog back with a little twist... to devote the year of 2012 to gratitude. This will be my platform with which to journal our thankfulness throughout the year along with just documenting the daily fun that is our family! Hope you'll join me for the journey!

Cool Mom Alert...

well at least in the eyes of my 8 year old son! Will's favorite song on Guitar Hero is "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" by Pat Benatar. When he's not playing Guitar Hero, he's constantly singing the song while strumming his air guitar. His PE teacher, my sweet friend Sara, said he was even singing it last week while doing football drills at PE! Well, I asked Will if he'd like me to put the song on his i-pod for him. He responded very excitedly with a yes! So I dug out my Pat Benetar CD, dusted it off and uploaded the songs to my itunes library. To say Will was impressed with the fact that I actually owned a Pat Benetar CD would be an understatement. He was very impressed that I used to rock out to Pat Benetar back in the day... I mean what good 80s child didn't?!? Now every morning, we have to play the CD on repeat mode for song #8... all the while trying to figure out why Pat Benetar is blonde on Guitar Hero when the picture of her on the CD cover has black hair. Will is very intrigued by this... Could it be that the creators of Guitar Hero are so young that they don't even know who Pat Benetar is?!? Well... regardless of if she's dark headed or blonde, after listening to the 2 minute 50 second song on repeat during our 15 minute drive to and from school each day I'm about to have to lose my "cool mom" status and hit the off button on the CD player with my best shot! So for all my fellow 80s children... I leave you with a little taste of our musical entertainment! Rock on my friends!

Love it! I'm learning to add pictures to mine.
Rock on Pat and Will! Are there any other songs of hers that could be added to the mix for deviation?!!
