Proud Mommy Moment

My oldest son, Big B, started a music related MySpace profile a few months ago at my urging to "do something that interests you". He worked hard on it, contacted bands, and even did his own weekly Top 40 Songs list. It was nice seeing him actually put some time and effort into something.

Last month he started an actual blog where he could post his music list, have an artist of the week, add song samples, display new bands, and hopefully do some interviews with various signed and unsigned musicians. When he was ready to start contacting different bands about the interviews I helped him word the email and we sent it off to one of his favorite new singers.

As the days passed it was sad to see his disappointment in not hearing back from them but that all ended this morning when in his inbox sat an email from the agent telling him to send the questions and they would be given to the artist. :)

My boy is officially a music reporter and interviewer! Heck, I've never even had an email interview with someone famous so he's already got me there. lol. I'm very proud of all the effort he has put in to things and I really hope this turns out being alot of fun for him. It's so nice to see that little kid excitement in his eyes even at Sixteen.

So that's all, just some mommy bragging since I don't talk much about my heathens on here and said I would start.

Might I also brag that I am on day three of no soda and only just today the migraines are starting. I don't know how long I can hold out considering that there is more Wild Cherry Pepsi in my veins than blood but at least I'm giving it a try. It's either that or make my stomach feel even worse. So wish me luck. I know I'll break down and buy some eventually but I'm determined to at least cut back. ;)

I am SO proud for Big B and you! I love the way he is pursuing his passion and getting experience writing, interviewing, doing computer stuff, and much more. Unschooling/home schooling at uts best!

No more wild cherry pepsi but I just bought a 12 pack for when you come and visit. Seriously, I was shopping and could not decide what pop to buy for the guys and I bought wild cherry pepsi. Did you put a curse on me , again?

Good Luck to your son with his is great to have a passion.

Now I am here to encourage you to keep off the soda...I was a total COKE addict (drank nothing else at all) and I have not had a drop since April 18th so there is hope for you yet. Hang in there Girl!

I'm very ashamed to say I broke down an hour ago and bought some WC Pepsi. :(

I lasted a few days though and plan on making myself go at least a few days again when this runs out.

Ugh, I hate this. My mother started all this when she put Pepsi in my bottle. For 32 years now I've had caffiene in my veins. Dammit

That's really cool for your son. Everyone has to start somewhere right.

That is totally gnarly man! I went over there and it looks cool. Tell him to keep up the good work.
