Rapunzel Sings Ozzy?

Addie J really loves Rapunzel since the movie Tangled came out. (And she slept in our bed last night, after having nightmares about the white cockatoo in the movie Rio. Seriously: she was crying and afraid of a cockatoo.) So this morning at breakfast– feeling well-rested and refreshed after a night of kicking me in the face and yanking all the blankets off my freezing shoulders– she was playing Rapunzel. At some point Rapunzel started singing, and as god is my witness Rapunzel was singing Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne. My sweet, blonde little 4-year-old sat in her ruffly dress, bare feet swinging under the table, singing, “I’m goin’ off the rails on a crazy traaaaaaaiiiiin!!!!!”

I was dumbfounded. I finally said, “Addie, how do you know that song?” And she gave me a withering glance and replied, “Everyone knows that song.”

Funny how I’m still considered (slightly)¬†cool to my ten- and seven-year-olds, but my four-year-old has already realized that I’m a tool.
