The time I learned my kids know the words to Taylor Swift Songs


Sometimes, I wonder when/if the girls are listening. I always act as if they are (I don’t want any bad language repeated), but they seem so immersed in their own little world that I can’t imagine they are.

As most parents know, they are listening. Like all the time. Nosey little boogers.

Turns out, they are. And, they know the words to many songs that I didn’t even realize they had heard. When we went to a concert with the Rockstar Madness Band they went to town. They were yelling “we are never, never, never getting back together” with all of the other little girls there.

It was slightly funny, slightly cute and slightly embarrassing…maybe because that let on to people that I had listened to the song, too (dang, it’s catchy).

The Rock Madness Band sings great songs about being Strong and Proud.  The lead singer is Shanica Knowles (better known for her appearance on Hannah Montana) who also lends her likeness to a brand new and improved Kenya Doll only available at your local Family Dollar. In addition to Kenya, there is also Denise, her best friend, TJ, her boyfriend, Keyisha, her little sister and Dwayne, TJ’s cousin. The dolls for the characters are also available.

In addition to Family Dollar having the Kenya dolls, they pretty much sell everything. Shave cream, baby spoons, candy, dog bones, socks and underwear, spirals, laundry detergent and more. Our girls had a fun time picking out some goodies for gifts for their friends (do I love how selfless they can be? Yes! Even though they aren’t dog fans, they got their friends’ dog a dog bone!)

Family Dollar hosted us at the concert and in their store for a special sneak peak of the Kenya doll. All thoughts are my own. No compensation was received.

  1. We’re supposed to be embarrassed by liking that song? Whoops – honestly, I think the fact that I listen to Demi Lovato sometimes is more embarrassing… lol – or that my 3 year old recognizes Phillip Phillips when he comes on the radio

    1. Well, I guess I just think of it as a teeny-bopper song? Maybe? I feel old!

      I guess as long as the songs aren’t using swear words or overly inappropriate it’s all good:)

    That is so adorable. They look like they are having so much fun.
    What a wonderful experience to share with your girls. =)

    I think my kids don’t know the words until I hear them all whisper singing it in the backseat… it really melts my heart.

    And cool event, lucky you!

    1. Isn’t it funny when they are listening, but don’t want us to know it!

  4. Oh my gosh! This is too funny – my 5 year old came home the other day singing the SAME song! I think she heard it from friends, and a singing group that came to their school. So now she wants to listen to Taylor Swift!

    1. Ugh…it’s not like it’s age appropriate for my 4 and 6 year old, either!

      1. Exactly. And then my 3.5 year old hears it and starts saying the words too.

        Speaking of which – have you ever read the Junie B. Jones books? A mom recommended it to me, with rave reviews, and every other word is “Stupid” or “I hate..”.. which is just not appropriate! Maybe older kids understand those are not ok to say, but I can’t stand those books!

        1. You are totally on the same page as me. Our oldest needed harder books at school so the teacher recommended them. She sent the first one home and every other word we said “that’s not nice” or “we don’t say that”! To be honest, the girl is a brat and misbehaves the entire book. We finished it and I emailed the teacher that we wouldn’t be reading any more of them. I can get my daughter excited about reading without reading that nonsense.
