As my son and I began our morning trek to elementary school, we set the radio to his favorite new station Kids Place Live on SiriusXM. (We’re letting him enjoy all he can before our three month trial ends!) We heard the song about monster trucks once before but this time we were in the car long enough to here it in it’s entirety.
Many of my readers know by now that I am an advocate for breaking cultural masculinity stereotypes and so, when I heard this nugget of greatness tucked into the middle of the song, I knew I had to share it with others.
Well. I know when you think about a monster truck,
the first thing that comes to mind is
a big, mean, aggressive vehicle that smashes stuff.
Well, let me tell you something about monster trucks
you may not know . . .
Well, even monster trucks have a soft side. (Yes they do.)
They like to listen to some AirSupply.
Strawberry pancakes for their breakfast (with whipped cream.)
When they watch sad movies, sometimes they start to cry.
But, the telephone rings and then – it’s back to work again.
A great discussion starter on “being a real man” if you need one. I love how one blogger described the monster truck lesson learned: “Inside that metal exterior is a whole lotta heart.”
Four years ago was the last time many heard from the Sugar Free Allstars but they have returned with an awesome first single and video Monster Truck and a brand new album. Although it’s music made for kids, both young and old will love this new family friendly compilation of upbeat tunes. Give’em a try!
