The feud in my house and in my car is all circled around the Billboard #1 Song of the Summer “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepson. After pop singers Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez tweeted about the song, Jepsen gained international attention and was signed to Schoolboy Records, releasing her single in the United States through the label.
Regardless, my girls argue over whether the song says “Call me Maybe” or “Call me Baby”.
I just don’t have it in me to break my 7-year-olds heart to tell her it really is “Call me Maybe”.
I think it’s because she is just SO DARN CUTE when singing the song with the ‘baby’ lyrics I love to watch her as she shakes her shoulders and sings the lyrics as loud as she could.
I plead with her sisters to just leave her alone and let her enjoy the song but for whatever reason they insist she get it right.
Ah, the joys of parenthood!
If your kids love the song as much as mine do you can tell them that she will be performing on the Teen Choice Awards. Here are the details:
