It’s UEA weekend here in Utah—schools are closed. So Megan and I are on a road trip to St. George to visit Melanie (whom we have desperately missed since she went away to college in August).
Now I know a 4 hour road trip with a 16 year old, listening to her music, is many parents’ nightmare, but I had a blast! It was absolutely delightful.
First we listened to some music from her iPod (mine is still intended). Then we listened to Rod Stewart’s new CD. (clips 1-5 and 13 were good; the others not so much. I paid $14 and only liked 6 songs, so I recommend getting the ones you want from iTunes.)
Then we listened to a mix Melanie (18 years old) had created—and herein is where I am the luckiest parent in the world. It’s called “Oldies But Goodies” and I loved every song on it. We followed that up with some SheDaisy and Ashlee Simpson and a few other mixes. Except for the longest 15 mile stretch just outside Cedar City, where Megan forced me to listen to the Aladdin Soundtrack, I would say this was the best road trip of my life!
