my nephew has the best taste in music  
Last night I was helping Jake set up his wall racer track and, as I usually do when frustrated, I started to sing under my breath. Green Day's 'Oh Love' is what came to mind and I sand the chorus over and over to myself while I built and Jake played. He stopped his play after a few moments and stood up behind me, patting my shoulder for my attention and had the biggest smile on his face.

"Why are you singing that Aunty Janine?" he asked and I grinned.
"Because I love Green Day. They're my favorite band." I replied, getting a giggle from him and a somehow even bigger smile.
"mine too. I really love them." he told me and i melted.

I know he's not even five yet and still has years ahead of him to develop his own taste in music and Green Day is unlikely to be his favoruite forever. I know he's at that age where he wants to please adults and likes everything they like.

But my gods, when he says that to me and we share that moment, I love him more than anything. He doesn't know how much Green Day means to me, he just knows the song from Angry Birds and knows i smile like a food whenever he puts that version of the game on, but the fact that he likes them, can identify one of their songs, it's a feeling I can't even describe.

It's just two of my favourite things in the world combining and it makes my heart swell.

I love that when he tells me he loves Green Day it's usually only the two of us hanging out and playing, like their our little secret.

It's awesome.
