This is not a follow-up to my last post about homework. It's not school related at all. But it does have to do with Rea.
On the way to school every morning the kids and I listen to The Bobby Bones Show on Wave 92.7. We've been listening daily for about 3 years. As a parent, the morning drive to school used to be a nightmare. Radio morning shows are pretty raunchy. I don't want to listen to hungover morons ranting about their latest sex-capades or those of the Kardashian losers and the like. And I certainly do NOT want my little kids to be exposed to that crap. So it was "Wheels on the Bus" all the way to school - ugh. There is not enough coffee in the world to make that ok.
Then one day, I couldn't stand it any longer... and turned the radio on figuring I would just channel surf for music. We stopped on Wave. And it didn't take too long to figure out that this was a good show. The kids love listening to Bobby Bones, Amy, Lunchbox, Eddie and the rest. They laugh all the time at whatever Lunchbox has to say. I think their favorite show was when Lunchbox was (very energetically) describing Sharknado. Both kids were cracking up the whole ride. Buddy's favorite part of the show is "Amy tells a joke" and "Amy yells a joke".
It doesn't matter what time of day it is, when the monsters get in the car, they request the Bobby Bones Show. And many times over the last three years the kids have asked to go to Nashville to "find them and meet them".
I am not sure how long it was before we really figured out about the Raging Idiots. For those who don't know, the Raging Idiots is a country parody duo consisting of Bobby Bones and Eddie. I think the first song we heard on the radio was Tortilla... or Food Crush. Not sure. The kids were DYING laughing when the morning show did a "World Premier".
The Raging Idiots tour around the country and play shows.
After years of being fans of the morning show, and months of watching YouTube videos of the Raging Idiots songs, it was announced that they would be playing a show in Ft Pierce. The kids screamed. Literally screamed. They wanted me to buy tickets immediately.

I really hate it. I never liked to do it. I never liked to grade it when I assigned it (when I was a teacher). I don't like to have to work on stuff when I get home after a long day in the office or being a mom.
So why is it surprising to me that my kids hate it too?
I should have been prepared for all the backlash. I should have had a game plan.
Nothing super fancy here... Just crazy stories from our day to day life. Or random thoughts from my brain. Enjoy.
