As an older parent, I’ve always crowed that having young kids has kept me young. One of the ways they do this is by keeping us in touch with trends in popular culture. If it wasn’t for my twelve-year old daughter, I would never be an American Idol fan. I don’t watch much network television, but Erica’s interest in the show has gotten me involved too. One thing I do keep an eye on, however, is trends on the Internet. And according to my sources, “American Idol” is a hot search term, and getting hotter.
I don’t have a favorite contestant yet, and I haven’t ever voted. But I do watch. How about you?
