Hello Dear Readers:
I have a few mommy rules that I have stuck too since becoming a mom. But one major rule that I have broken time and time again, is that dreaded: WILL NOT listen to baby/kids music in the car all of the time rule. Ugh. I do not think it is worth fighting with Ana to play "mommy's music" when she clearly loves her music together and raffi cds so so much.
Soo...... you can imagine how happy I was to review the wonderful "Once Upon A Rhyme" cd which combines the soothing sounds that are relaxing to Ana in the car, with the cool songs that Mommy likes to listen to. Ana has no idea that most of those songs are songs that I have been listening to for years. These include:
The Real Slim Shady by Eminem
Gangsta's Paradise by Coolio
Girls from the Beastie Boys.
The songs are soothing, catchy and really fun to listen to. It is fun to teach Ana some of the songs from my youth in a new way. She really digs them, and has even taken out some of her cds from the player and put this in to listen to when she is in the playroom. I think it is so cute to hear her humming to the Beasties. I mean., come on THAT Is so cool. A three year old getting down with Ad rock and MCA.
Want more deets about the cd? Coolness. Here is the info from the company:
" On “Once Upon A Rhyme: Lullaby Renditions Of Hip-Hop Classics”, Jammy Jams explores the melodies of old school hip-hop songs and brings them to life with calming renditions for parents to enjoy along with their babies.
