Everyone loves “Call Me, Maybe”

June 11, 2012


As you are all aware my little Q is obsessed with music and his new fave is the, what I must admit, very catchy tune by Carly Rae Jepsen, “Call Me Maybe.”  Since it’s Monday and this was such a highlight for me at least 20 times yesterday and even more all week, I thought I would share it with you. It takes about 30 seconds for him to really warm up (thankfully you can hear me to tide you over:)), but you can actually distinguish him saying the last word of every sentence to the beat (which we all know by heart at this point)…not only is it so adorable, there is a lesson here.

Little Q has been singing this song this for a week. Each day, I say we must get this on video before it goes away. Before he knows all the words, before he moves on to his next girl crush song, first Ke$sha now Carly Rae,  before he can string more words to the song. Little changes mean time gone by, moments gone, and going forward. It’s these moments I cherish. So today, it was time. We made time. We got out the phones and teed it up and it was pure joy.  Even E, who has been sick all day, who you can hear chatting in the background, perked up a bit for her brother’s rendition of the pop hit.

So today, grab your moments. Capture them in your heart and mind. Do what you can to remember them either physically or mentally.  Enjoy those moments and let today be ‘yournewfavoriteday.’ And if you need it, crank up the “Call Me Maybe” at the very least you will want to bounce around the living room!

I hope you enjoy little Q’s song as much as we did. And look out Carly Rae and Justin Bieber, Q is hot on your heels:)

About Shannon Pruitt from 'Mynewfavoriteday'

Welcome to 'mynewfavoriteday. This space is about gratitude and connecting through being open, vulnerable and real. I hope you will enjoy my take on motivation, inspiration and advocacy and will take the opportunity to tell me of your own thoughts and stories. Why I started 'mynewfavoriteday.' I am a childhood surviving, divorced, now happily married, IVF (and now natural pregnancy) success story, working mother of 2 amazing babies who were born 12 weeks premature. As life often seems to surprise you when you least expect it, we added another sweet baby girl M to our family in July of 2013. While our angel minis, Q and E are now 7 years old, our son, Q, has thrived while our daughter, E, has had a much more difficult journey. She is considered special needs and in September of 2012 was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Angelman Syndrome. And so, as she has grown, so do we as individuals and as family. How to help her, how to celebrate our differences while allowing ourselves to cope with the challenges that we never knew to expect. Thus, while much of this blog is based on our experiences (good and not-so-good), it is also based on how we must not let ourselves become victims of our circumstances but rather advocate in our own lives. A little bit about me and who I am. In my professional life I am a marketer in the Entertainment Industry; however, ‘mynewfavoriteday,’ was not born of entertainment or marketing but rather as a pathway to help myself and others as we try to define who we are as parents, family members, spouses, friends, colleagues and people. I believe in never judging a book by its cover. Every cover is different, and no matter what your cover looks like, you never know how someone's book is written. Like mine. From the outside, you might never know what truly makes me who I am or what I believe. This blog explores the pages on the inside of my book. My vulnerabilities, fears, happiness, and all my triggers through the lens of being grateful for all the amazing blessings I know I have received but sometimes forget in the challenges of daily life. Thanks again for dropping by. I hope you will come back, subscribe, comment, share, and/or just hang out and be inspired or motivated to make each day for yourself or someone else 'anewfavoriteday.' By being here, you have certainly helped to make it mine. xo, Shannon

    Hooray for Q! Hooray for YOU! That is so wonderful! Music is such a blessing! Andie was hardly talking at two and we did Kindermusic, have you heard of it? Anyway, she loved it and I think it helped her find her voice (along with eye glasses, cranial-sacral therapy and her big brother not talking for her!).


    • Shannon Pruitt from 'Mynewfavoriteday' Says:

      Hi Kasey, thanks so much. It is quite fun. I haven’t heard of it, but I know music is a huge gift for kiddos with speech delays. E isn’t talking either so I hear you and it will be a long time before she does which means I will someday be saying your exact last sentence! I am glad she found her voice and you did too:) xoxo

    He’s adorable. I have 3 daughters – 16, 8, and 7. That song makes them so happy, I’m afraid if I te;ll them iit’s complete crap, DFACS will take them away from me for cruelty.


    • Shannon Pruitt from 'Mynewfavoriteday' Says:

      LOL…Thanks and I know it’s so catchy you can’t help but be happy by their happiness. I can only imagine what’s it’s like in your house! Yes, don’t tell them, they will know one day, it’s like Debbie Gibson for us…I am pretty sure “Only in my dreams,” was not the best song on the planet!


      • Lance Says:

        They dance around, sing into hair brushes, and do dance routines. I try to find ways to leave the house or pay attention to the road when we’re in the car.

    This is beyond cute, my friend!! I adore your little Q!! And this is a good, good lesson, especially for a woman who overslept her alarm, missed the school bus, and shuttled the children through their morning routine at a sprint. Much love to you!
