Sunday night during the Superbowl John and I were thoroughly enjoying Tom Petty's half-time performance when Sophie asked "Why isn't Miley Cyrus playing?"

We tried explaining that the half-time show needs to appeal to a broader audience. She wasn't buying it. She wrinkled her nose and then mocked his singing in a twangy voice. MOCKED HIM!

I would like her to grow up appreciating all kinds of music, not mocking the music of her parents' generation (even if it did involve A Flock of Seagulls and a Girlfriend in a Coma). Her punishment for mocking Tom Petty? I'm secretly loading his greatest hits onto her mix stick.

Why does raising a seven year old sometimes make you act like one?

i too at my ripe old age of 37 (and tom petty fan) was wondering why they picked him to do the half time show.....guess he wouldn't have a wardrobe malfunction!

LOL!! You are too funny Mer! I guess Sophie will have to live with Petty's music just as you have to live with Miley's music.
