The Girl-Child

So I asked my daughter what she wanted for her birthday...
...and she wanted me to burn a CD for her.

Personally I thought that was a crappy present, but whatever.

I told her to pick her absolute favorites...she spent a couple hours going through all my music and made a list of her own.

Have I ruined my kid?

Here are her two CDs worth of selections:

Upside Down ~Bob Gentry
Genie In A Bottle ~Christina Aguilara
Salt Water Clouds ~Bob Gentry
No Sugar Tonight ~The Guess Who
Babe ~Bob Gentry
Heartbreaker ~Pat Benatar
Xs and Os ~Trisha Yearwood
Fly Like An Eagle ~Steve Miller Band
Still The One ~Shania Twain
What's Her Name ~TOFOG
Ain't No Sunshine ~Bill Withers
Mysterious Ways ~U2
Shake The Sugar Tree ~Pam Tillis
Lonely No More ~Rob Thomas
Like The Rain ~Clint Black
Never Been To Spain ~3 Dog Night
Wish You Were Someone I Loved ~The Gatlin Brothers
But I Do Love You ~LeeAnn Rimes
Gimme One Reason ~Tracy Chapman
Don't Go Near The Water ~Sammy Kershaw
These Boots Are Made For Walkin' ~Nancy Sinatra
Bang Bang ~Nancy Sinatra version
Amazed ~Lone Star
American Woman ~The Guess Who
Boom Boom Boom ~Coyote Ugly soundtrack
Queen Of My Doublewide Trailer ~Sammy Kershaw
Spirit In The Sky ~Norman Greenbaum
I Can Only Imagine ~Mercy Me
Kiss This ~Aaron Tippin
In Your Wildest Dreams ~Moody Blues
Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves ~Cher
No One Like You ~Scorpions
Son Of A Preacher Man ~Dusty Springfield
Go Ahead ~Rilo Kiley (Janet will be happy to hear that)
Be My Baby Tonight ~John Michael Montgomery
Papa Don't Preach ~Madonna
I'll Meet You Halfway ~David Cassidy (shut up, I like it too)
I Think I Love You ~ David Cassidy ( " " )

She does NOT like Styx, George Strait, or Bon Jovi, so I decided to disown her anyway.

But I'm nice enough not to break that to her until after her birthday. :)

Then she made one of these...

...out of an empty water bottle and a pencil.

Anyone need a backup musician?
