Mom, I need to be a rockstar....


Those were his exact words to me. In fact, they have been his words for the last six months. This boy has been BEGGING for a guitar for his birthday ("a REAL one mom..."). I won this guitar in the Nie Nie Day auction (thanks Oh Judy and the guys at Maroon 5!!!). No, I am not letting him carry this one around the house (for that, he gets the 30$ Target guitar, which is a good thing since I saw him hitting baseballs with it today....). But, I DID give him this one. He is obsessed with it and always asks me to hold it. He even knows how to shake his money maker while holding it. First things first.




After he opened it, he told me that he needs to find some other "big boys" and get on a stage and "sing like Rock Stars......" and then he proceeded to sing "Slow Ride" by Foghorn. You know, the one from Guitar Hero. Granted, his whole guitar exposure is from Guitar Hero (this is also where his exposure to swear words is from, ahem.....).




I think we might have a rock star on our hands.....

He is getting so grown up... he is a rock star... with killer eyes.

More Caffiene, Please said...

As far as I'm concerned, one more Lenny Kravits in the world is a very good thing.

Michelle said...

Yep, I believe you do. He's adorable!

I'm not sure if you remember me: I've commented here a few times as Brittany.

Jacob has such amazing charisma by what I'm seeing in photos alone. He has grown a ton in the short while (about 5 months now, I suppose) that I've been reading here!

How cute is that! We have been through several guitars around here, now that I think of it -- nothing as valuable as yours, or else I would feel badly when I had to throw it out. So cute.

AzĂșcar said...

That's awesome.

One more year until he can get lessons for real?

Mandy said...

He would be a great rock star. He would have all the girls all over him!! He looks so much older than the last time I saw his picture. Why are these kids growing so fast?

What an awesome thing to win. He will really cherish that when he's older.

CKW said...

That's cool! After reading Lisa's stories, I have been thinking I want a rock star family member too.

Syd said...

Oh, I just want to eat him. He is soooo cute. Maddy wanted to be a rock star for a while, I think she just wanted people to ask for her autograph. Kids are so cute. (and exhausting!!)

Jefe said...

Awesome! I call dibs on being moocher uncle when he is rich and famous. I will go to his shows and pretend like I helped him nurture his talent. :)

I will then try to get him to do a terrible covers album that will ultimately destroy his career. Sorry.

That is hilarious! Start him young ;0)

dandelionmama said...

Just LOOK at how very HAPPY he is in those pictures!! Amazing.

I don't know how you feel about random strangers visiting, but I just found your blog and I have spent the last 3 hours reading it. I HAD to see the stories of Norah and Cubby before I could stop! You are amazing. And now its midnight and I have got to go to bed.

And I can say I (kind of) knew him "when"! No doubt about it, he is bound for stardom of some sort. He's darling!

Hey Bek...how about an update? There are some of us who are very interested in the goings on in the Bingham family who are thousands of miles away.

I'm jonesing for some pics of my adorable nieces and nephews in Halloween costumes...

AllisonK said...

you have a beautiful family. I found your blog through google reader and I was very touched by reading your experiences today. Thank you.

Suzie Petunia said...

I'll be so proud to be able to say "I knew him when..." He is just so darn handsome. And with a personality to boot... He IS destined for stardom!

Melissa said...

zzzzzzzzzzz.....that's me sleeping b/c you haven't updated your blog in AGES!.

BB said...

Is everything okay? It's been a while since this post.
