Indie Rock Star in Training
The Snail is so rock and roll. She stomps into the kitchen in her stripy tights and clumpy red boots (a bit like me circa 1993), demanding songs on the Ipod and ordering me/ Mr Meep/ Catty/ the dog to dance with her.
I've always refused to go down the route of children's CDs, with very real fears of being trapped in a traffic jam on the M1 with the Postman Pat theme tune on loop for five hours.
The result is a little girl with a playlist that John Peel would have been proud of.
Here's her current top 10:
Feist - 1,2,3,4
Lemonheads - Alison's Starting to Happen
Jeffrey Lewis - Roll Bus Roll
Elvis - Guitar Man
Madness - Our House
Editors - Munich
Ting Tings - Shut Up and Let Me Know
Hot Chip - Ready for the Floor
Antsy Pants - Vampire (from the Juno soundtrack)
The Kinks - You Really Got Me
She's not a fan of rap "I don't like the man talking" or guitar bands
"This song is not really nice". There was a brief obsessions with Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas over the festive season, but we'll gloss over that one. And she does have a bit of a penchant for Ultimate Kylie.
But all in all, not bad for 2-and-a-half.
