Best Mommy Moment EVER!

So I'm driving along with just Katherine-age-5 in the car, sitting right behind me. I'm not really paying attention to the radio, just background noise for planning the list of things to get done this week. I realized that we were listening to Toby Keith's American Soldier ...

... Everything to everyone.
Up and at 'em bright and early,
I'm all business in my suit,
Yeah, I'm dressed up for success from my head down to my boots,
I don't do it for the money, there's bills that I can't pay,
I don't do it for the glory, I just do it anyway,
Providing for our futures, my responsibility,
Yeah I'm real good under pressure, being all that I can be,
And I can't call in sick on Mondays when the weekend's been too strong,
I just work straight through the holidays,
And sometimes all night long.
You can bet that I stand ready when the wolf growls at the door,
Hey, I'm solid, hey I'm steady, hey I'm true down to the core,
And I will always do my duty, no matter what the price,
I've counted up the cost, I know the sacrifice,
Oh, and I don't want to die for you,
But if dying's asked of me,
I'll bear that cross with honor,
'Cause freedom don't come free ...

And that was the moment Katherine was yelling out in surprise "HEY! Thats a song about MOMMIES!"

... I'm an American Soldier. An American ..

"Oh. And about soldiers :) "
