She Wants To Rock and Roll All Night and Part of Every Day!

Or is it Party Every day? I can never get it right!

A few new developments have come to light about little Miss Vivi. She is now 5 years old, she is 31 pounds (such a little peanut), she loves preschool, and she is obsessed with KISS.

No Little Einsteins or Dora the Explorer for my little girl, she is all about Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss. Especially Peter Criss!

It started with my "Mom-of-The-Year Super Duper Parenting". I inadvertently let the girls watch the last 30 minutes of Role Models. If you have seen the movie, you know that there is a HUGE Kiss reference. That was all it took.

Then, I didn't realize that KISS is actually everywhere you look. They were watching The Fairly OddParents and the band made an animated guest star appearance.

We were walking around Walmart and she spotted a KISS t-shirt that she so desperately wants, she bugs me about it daily. The only problem I have is that it's a woman's shirt and even the smallest size would have to be used as a nightshirt. I told her that it was too big for her to wear outside the house and she was okay with that, so it looks like I am taking a trip to Walmart.

She told us that her and Stacy (her imaginary friend) went to the KISS concert. Of course, Stacy likes KISS too.

Emerson showed her the magic of Youtube and pulled up concert footage. Vivi sat their for an hour watching it. She was just fascinated.

Last year, her and I had a little fight because she wanted to wear her Alice in Wonderland dress to Thanksgiving. Well, guess what she wants to be this year. That's right, Peter Criss. I think I may put the makeup on her one day and see how she likes it.

Until something else catches little Vivi's eye, we are all Detroit Rock City around here.

I love it!!! Especially because our house is full of KISS stuff... my husband has been a KISS collector since he was a teenager... we seriously have more KISS stuff in our home then ANYTHING... sorta sad...

Gotta get that girl some platform boots now! :)

Becky said...

She definitly has her own taste:) You go girl!! All 31 pounds of you!

(I swear I thought it was "party every day"...but now you have me doubting myself. I will have to ask Mike who knows every word to every song from the 70's)

Funny in my mind said...

go here

My husband loves them too and we saw them in concert when i was pregnant with my oldest back in 1990. They are not too bad.

GO ViVi!!! It's all about whatever catches the eyes and the ears when it comes to art, and music is an art.

Something tells me you will never ever be bored with your two little ones... :)

Has she started doing her tongue stetching exercises yet? Oh, and I'd hate to see that little angel's face covered in make-up - but it would be a cool picture.

Oh my. Isn't being a mom fun? That's ok - Vivi will find someone more colorful soon and then you will really have something to complain about.

Hey - it is great to see a post from you :)
