Hannah Montana And YouTube

... or should I say my daughter, Hannah Montana, and YouTube. At the moment, I'm being assulted by a strange and unpalatable blend of "Best of Both Worlds" (Alyssa) and the Wii Fit tightrope music (Joseph). Ahhhh. (sigh)

We've spent a lot of time outdoors lately, so that's good at least. As the spring and then summer establish themselves and the weather gets better and better, hopefully Alyssa will be distracted enough from her latest kick: "Mommy, can you tape me singing and then put it on YouTube?"

Um, NO. (Are you kidding me? I don't even put pictures of you on my blog - you think I'm going to put vids on YouTube??).

I admit I may be a little more privacy oriented than some, but she's SIX, and she doesn't comprehend the far reaches of the internet. When she's TWENTY six, if she still wants to video tape herself singing and broadcast it for the world to see, she'll have my full support (although it won't be nearly at cute then ;)

Meanwhile I get to listen as she belts out Hannah Montana songs along with the video. Over and over and over and... oh wait. I used to do the same thing. As my Mom would say, it's payback time ;)

I rue the day my daughter discovered Hannah Montana. My kid's first name is Hannah, so she views it as some kind of match made in heaven. I view it as a tragic coincidence that I will be paying for for a long time.

I'm right there with you on the privacy thing. Good for you.

I resisted the Hannah Montana phenom as long as I could (I think she's ok for older kids, but Alyssa is only six), but once kids are in school full time they're exposed to so much.

It could be worse. Alyssa HAD to have Hannah Montana sparkly nail polish, and when I put it on her it had a clear base with only a few sparkles, so it was very kid friendly. Thank goodness for the Disney influence...
