January 26, 2007Coleman "It’s sort of a cross between Arlo Guthrie, Barney the Dinosaur, and Bob Dylan." Said last night, in the bathtub, while describing a video clip of a comedian singing "Bohemian Rhapsody" he’d seen on Youtube.com. He’s 7. I love this kid. Share this:FacebookPinterestTwitter
That totally just made my day. I love kids!

The other night during bath time the Raconteurs was playing in the background and my 2 year old looked at me and said, “that part sounds like Pink Floyd”. There is hope for their generation.
dude… offspring totally rocks!!
totally funny kid!
can’t imagine my kids saying anything like that!
okay – i thought my kids were cool knowing the violet femmes (whaaat?? not ALL of it) U2, REM, and ferris beuller when they were little… arlo guthrie?? 8×10 glossies with circles and arrows… guess it all connects 🙂
That. Is. Awesome.
Now that is just classic! And I love Bohemian Rhapsody too!
i can’t believe he’s 7. SEVEN!!!
that ain’t right.
he’s a trip.. way too funny..but seriously what a cool kid you got there!!!
That’s far better than my 6 year old DD asking me what “foshizzle” meant! I know she wants to be a rock star when she grows up, but if she switches her aspirations to rapper, I may have a problem with that.
Wise beyond his years – that boy is!
WELCOME BACK!! I MISSED YOU TERRIBLY. WHAT A SURPRISE I RECEIVED WHEN I CLICKED ON AN OLD LINK.. AND UP POPPED YOU.
YOU MAKE ME LAUGH

That is so funny!!! I think he is a genius!!!
My son’s name is Coleman too. It was my grandfather’s middle name. I am curious how you came up with it?!?!? They are the only two Coleman’s I have heard of. My son is 9.
I rarely leave comments (you can’t possibly read them all!), but I love your blog and am so glad you came back!
tongue in cheek says
Goes to show that culture grows in the smallest seeds! Bravo for giving your child a rounded education!
With that and the Chuck E. Cheese comment – how can you NOT love that kid??

Good to see you back in the world of blogging. My friend in N. Ireland got me into scrapbooking at the end of the summer and I haven’t looked back since. Your second book was the first scrapbooking book I bought and I have been so inspired by your work and attitude. Thanks Cathy. Talking of kids and music; I was in the car with my boys (3 and 1) listening to Jack Johnson’s Banana Pancakes and my 3 year old starts singing along with made up lyrics. So very cute.
ohhh man that is GREAT! I love that boy!
That is hilarious! Gotta love the little buggers!

Love, love, love the things your kids say! Mine too for that matter. Love your style, really (my husband says in a freaky way) love your books. Your blog makes me laugh each day, and in my world (stay home w/ 3 yr old and 10 mo old) that easily puts you up there with toaster waffles, PBS sprout on demand and lattes. You’re totally fantastic and real. Discovering your books was like coming home… like to a really comfortable, classy scrapbook store where I fit right in. Hope you are cool with a link to your blog page on mine? Ok, well I met my quota for inappropriate hero worship for the day, I better wind this up. Also, I want to be just like you when I grow up!! Oops, so much for dialing it down. Take care!
