Sheryl Crow's Son Doesn't Like Her Singing

Sheryl Crow may have received thunderous applause for her performance with Miley Cyrus at VH1’s Divas Live on Thursday, but her 2-year-old son, Wyatt Steven, is fed up with her singing. “I want to sing to him, but right now he’s like, ‘Mommy, no! All done! All done!'” the singer/songwriter told PEOPLE at Thursday’s event.

That’s not to say that Wyatt doesn’t appreciate good music. “He’s really into kids’ music and is listening to a lot of Raffi. I think he thinks if I’m singing that I’m going to work,” she says.

Sheryl, 47, adopted Wyatt as a newborn, and last year the singer and her tot traded the glitz of Hollywood for a quieter life in Tennessee.

“Everything about me has changed. My point of reference has changed. [Wyatt] is the first thing I think of in the morning and the last thing I think of at night, and it’s just a lot of joy in my life,” she says. “I definitely sleep a lot less.”

And while most children his age can barely pull up their Pull-Ups, Wyatt is practically ready to do laps.

“He’s a great swimmer, which is crazy. He literally can swim by himself now across the pool, and he has the most wicked sense of humor. He’s definitely a boys’ boy. He loves trucks,” shares the happy mom, adding, “Life is great. I’m loving it. [Wyatt] is just fantastic and I’m working on a record and life is just good.”

I hope Cheryl finds love… Just to complete her happy family package😉 Plus, I’m sure Wyatt would love to have an older male rode model around!

I always love seeing pics and hearing updates about Sheryl and Wyatt’s life together! He is definitely a cutie, and she seems like such a loving mom! I also love the name Wyatt!

Lis- He may already have male role models around. His grandfather, for example, if Sheryl’s father is still alive, and/or an uncle or two (I don’t know if Sheryl has any siblings). Sheryl probably also has at least a few male friends.🙂

Sounds like things are going wonderfully for Sheryl Crow. I’m so happy for her, I felt really bad for her after her split with Lance Armstrong.
