My children might be considered odd by their generation as we their parents have unintentionally handed down our old but classic taste to them.
My husband is a huge Beatles fan. So our three seem to naturally love Glass Onion,My Guitar Gently Weeps and Octupus Garden etc. They intricately know the albums and their covers. My son is learning to play guitar through the notes of Blackbird. Our old turntable gets alot of play from my husband's vintage LP's.
I on the other hand do not have to worry about my Partridge Family records being left out of the liners but I have passed on an enjoyment for my favorite comedienne. When I was inquiring about the latest I Love Lucy dvd set, the young cashier asked, "Who?" I didn't realize she was serious. My children and I, however, do know Lucy. We laugh as her life works out with mischievious humor and love.
There is honor in sharing with your children the music and humor of your life. These pieces of our history bind us together as a family.
