Sorry Sheena, Now Thalia is a Punk Rocker

Be warned, unsuspecting parents of America, for it takes very little influence from unsavory sources, until an ordinary, happy-go-lucky, Froot Loops loving toddler to start her downward spiral...

towards a dead-end life of hardcore Punk.

Okay so maybe the unsavory influence were the terrific kids band, The Jimmies, who were shooting a new video for their track, Bedhead. (There's lead singer Ashley in the background above, with...yep, bedhead.)

Remember, it takes three hands and a pint of Manic Panic to get those mohawk spikes to the appropriately threat level - lest you have forgotten the 80s in a haze of pot smoke, inhaled mimeograph chemicals, and minor hearing damage from repetitive playing of the Dead Kennedys tape stuck in your Walkman.

Thalia's so rock star she insisted on only the green Froot Loops in her dressing room.

Yeah, she had like 17 holes in her right ear they closed up. Duct tape did the trick.

She didn't have any spoken lines. But if she did, I would have picked, Let's get sushi and not pay.

Thalia and Ashley prepare to rock the green screen while the fledgling stage mother holds herself back from begging for just one more take "so she can really get it right."

Thalia earns her first ever dollar, hoping to save up for that limited edition Black Flag EP she's had her heart set on. That, or Elmo Sings the Pistols.

The transformation is complete as Thalia tries to convert Mommy to her band of rowdy no-goodnik hooligans.

Wardrobe credits go to Fadiddle for the rockin' tee, Little Ruler for the baby Vans, and above all, Jenn from Babesta, the most rock 'n roll little kids emporium in NYC if not in the whole wide world. She totally hooked us up with some flamin' Baby Legs to use as arm bands, and ripped the red tartan skirt right off her own daughter's body and handed it to us.

Don't worry Jenn, only a couple people at the wrap party partied so hard that they puked on it.

The week of shameless Mom-101 family media whoring continues this week with my Montel Show taping airing Tuesday (10AM in NY) that I am somewhat hoping you forget to watch. Plus there's one other very exciting opportunity at the end of the week that you'll just have to wait to hear about.

No, it's not Rock of Love III. I wish.

I wish I could rock that look half as well as she does. She's adorable. And totally anti-establishment.

Awww. Cutest punk evah. She is rockin' that Fadiddle tee.

Did I ever tell you about the time my mom botched my little sister's home haircut and decided to make the best of it by dyeing it pink and blue and green to look like Cyndi Lauper, and then my dad called Child Protective Services on my mom? No? I didn't?

True story.

The Hurricane would like to propose. That they run off and hitch it to a Circle Jerks concert. He's in love.

Thalia's a gorgeous punk rocker. Now you'll have to have a make-up and hair team on hand whenever she wants to go out!

Q's second favorite song in Rock Band is "Aye Oh!" (chorus from Blitzkrieg Bop by the Ramones)

And she's earning some cash for preschool.

Ok gotta go set the DVR.

Can you imagine what Thalia's great grandmother will think when she sees this? From flapper to punker in one lifetime. How lucky can a girl get?

Dude, your daughter was in a video! All my daughter did this weekend was sing the ABC song a few million times . And she has got to be the cutest little punker I've ever seen.

P.S. "Let's get sushi and not pay"-Chris and I saw that in the theater when we were first hanging out. "What's in the trunk? Oh, you do not want to look in there". Classic.

She is such a good sport! I'm hopeful that stuff washed out pretty easily---when Jilly colored her friend's hair with red lip gloss, it wasn't too pretty from a washing standpoint.

(btw, is there, by chance, an owl on your necklace? it looks just like one the sistah bought me).

Great photos! Looks like it was a ton of fun.

We tried to get my eldest son interested in commercials as he has/had the classic Gerber baby looks... every talent agency ate him up as did the auditioners (on looks). Unfortunately, he was too shy and retiring to earn us the million dollars of easy money of his back.

Sigh. I guess there's always child labour. ;)

I just fell over from the cuteness. No, wait. Punks aren't cute.

I just fell over from the total badassness.

But now that she's been in a video just make sure her next step isn't gyrating on a mercedes, okay?

Bullocks! That kid is rocking!

Love that look on her, and I hope you dress her that way all the time. I also loved the line "Elmo Sings the Pistols." Too cool that she's in a video!

She is by far the coolest toddler - erm although I'm not sure she's be down with that? Isn't cool like totally uncool - oh god I don't know, the pressure!!

(Lucky mum, she's fab! and now I am getting the brill cream out to attack the boys with!)

Wow. Just wow. I wish I could get Cordy to sit still to get her hair done like that. It would look awesome.

Thalia is a rockin' little girl, and I can't wait to see that video!

Your little punk rocker, well, rocks!

That's so funny. My daughter has started wearing her Baby Legs as arm bands and we don't even know anyone else who wears them that she could have copied off of. Maybe she's punk rock, too!

That's hilarious. And probably much easier to wash out than the other old standbys like egg white and spray starch. Or glue. Blech.
