My son came home yesterday from his after school program with a “bump” on his thumb. Of course, my job as a Mommy is not only for nurturing, food preparation and shopping, but in his eyes, I am a fixer of all things. ”Let me see the bump,” I said. It was a blister…on the side of his thumb. I knew exactly what it was from.
Earlier in the afternoon, one of the staff from the after school program had posted a video of a rock star in the making on my Facebook page. Yes, the rock star was my son, and you all have to check this out.

Yep, I knew exactly what his blister was from, because I’ve had so many of them in my life from doing exactly the same thing. He had a guitar blister….a red badge of courage that shows the commitment and dedication and passion that he put into his instrument. They hurt, but I have always taken those guitar-playing blisters with pride, and I know he did , too.
No, my son was not playing any real chords when he played his rock star performance, but he had the attitude down. For sure, I am raising a future celebrity!
My song of the day today is from Pink. I love her song, “So What,” which was really written during a rocky spot in her marriage to Carey Hart. It’s the chorus I kept hearing through my head as I was thinking of this blog though.
I am a rock star
I got my rock moves
The description and candor fit my little Kindergarten (almost 1st grade) rock star. Click HERE to hear the song, as I go get him a band-aid for his much earned blister. Rock on, y’all!!!
