Mom Rocks to the Black Eyed Peas

This week, I helped my third grader create a Black Eyed Peas music video for his “Job” report on being a musician. I am not stellar with Powerpoint, but we eventually figured out how to make a song run as the slides (photos of the band and their album covers) played by themselves.

Day 1: We learned that Apl.de.ap is legally blind. And my third grader cried that he would never get it done in time.

Day 2: We learned that they are one of only 11 musicians who have held the number one and two spots on the Billboard Top 100 at the same time. And I yelled at him for not trying.

Day 3: We learned that Fergie is part-owner of the Miami Dolphins. And we battled and wrote for hours while his brothers trashed the house.

Day 4: We learned that Will.i.am and Apl.de.ap started performing together in eighth grade. And he told his teacher that he might not get it done on time.

Day 5: He got in the car after school, gave me a high five, and said “Everybody liked mine the best! It was a hit!”

Life couldn’t be better at my house tonight. And for some reason, we can’t wait for the next report.
