Ready for the "rough" team?

Matt is inclined to a slightly "heavier" kind of music than I, it is safe to say. While Kyra acquaints herself on my driving days with women folk artists like Lori McKenna, when Matt is at the wheel, Kyra and her dad enjoy something more along the lines of Audioslave. When we were driving to the infamous Chuck E. Cheese birthday party, Kyra requested that I turn to a radio station more to her liking--"some of that 'rough' music Daddy and I listen to." She proceeded to share that the world is divided into teams--she and Matt are on the "rough" team. They like heavy music, and they enjoy what we have come to call "tackling." This is the nightly game of, well, tackling. Kyra and Lucas attack while Matt defends his person as best he can on the family room floor. While Lucas is clearly a bench player on the rough team--not quite to full varsity status--it appears I am fully out. I had the opportunity tonight to see the acapella gospel performers Take 6 at the college, and I'm still walking on air. Though I might not have made the cut for the home team, I'll gladly take these visitors. We'll see what Kyra thinks when I take the wheel tomorrow morning....

My husband totally used to play for the rough team (bassist in a heavy metal band). Now he warms the bench. I'm sort of in the middle. ;-)
