I was in the car leaving the gym the other day and was listening to the radio.  I ended up on a certain radio station.  This radio station and I have a history with each other.  And as I was listening to Christina Perri '1000 Years', I had a little chuckle to myself and thought this would be a fun little story to share and a great memory to keep.

My dad only listens to this radio station.  And I used to hate it.  I mean a station that plays a song entitled 'Take Me to the Snake Farm' (and I am dead serious) is just not for me.  So when I rode with him in his truck, we fought over the radio.  I would vehemently argue with him about this stupid station that played stupid music.

Well, rewind in your minds to June 27, 2009.  My due date with Trent.  Except Trent didn't want to come out.  And I was upset.  I rode with my parents to my cousin's daughter's birthday party and was on the verge of tears the entire car ride but was trying so hard to hide it.  And we had that station on the entire car ride...except the music didn't suck!  For the first time ever, I was enjoying the music.  But then we pulled up in front of my cousin's house, my mom got out of the car, and I burst into tears and bawled 'Daddy, I don't want to be pregnant anymore.'  Not one of my finer moments...but I was at least happy with the music.  And when I finally told my dad that he had a chuckle.

Then a few years later, I was driving to a client, and there was a new station in town playing great music!  I didn't know what it was, but I was so excited. Until they paused for station identification and it was THAT station...they had just moved frequencies.  So I had to call my dad, and he had a chuckle.

Now?  That station is one of my presets.  Oh how the mighty have fallen.

Haha to the comment above! Is that from Brent?

Also, I'm taking Davis in for his 9 month appointment this morning, so I'll keep you posted on the stats... but yes, he is definitely long and skinny! :)

That's such a cute/funny story!

I totally listen to (and love!) stations now that I used to make fun of when I was younger.
