Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Safe Music For Kids and Expressing Through Movement

I posted the adorable ballet pictures yesterday. Puddin Pop is having a lot of fun in her class. I remember taking ballet when I was 5 and being unsatisfied with the pace. It was slow and structured. I ended up in gymnastics instead.

At 3, the ballet classes are less structured. More about movement, following directions and creating friendships. The spend time running around and "flapping their wings". At the end of Tuesday's Show-n-Tell, students were encouraged to invite their parents out onto the floor to dance with them. We all put down our digital cameras and hit the dance floor. To my surprise,
the teacher then put on "Who let the Dogs Out?" Pudding Pop loves to "shake it" and she was all over the place dancing and shaking. At one point I think all the little girls were on the floor trying to spin on their backs. I looked. There are no break dancing classes available for her age.

At home we love to dance. I love to give the kids the opportunity to express themselves through movement. It's fun to watch their interpretation of the music. Sometimes they enjoy my 80's music and sometimes they ask me to turn it off. We listen to the "just for kids" station through our cable company too.

Right now Pudding Pop is hooked on The Alvin and the Chipmunks, The Squeakquel soundtrack. She's either dancing around the living room of walking and dancing around with her portable cd player and headphones. I remember as a kid listening to the same songs over and over. I think its good for memorization skills. PP is already singing some of the songs even without her CD.

Product Description:

The Squeakquel Movie Soundtrack is great entertainment for both kids and parents. Featuring chipmunk'd renditions of classics from Beyonce, Katy Perry, the Bee Gees and many more, Alvin, Simon, Theodore and their girlfriends, The Chipettes, provide hours of fun for everyone.

If you love Alvin, Simon and Theodore like we do, I would strongly suggest this Soundtrack. In a day and age where I'm almost afraid to turn on the radio with the kids in the car, afraid of what they might hear and repeat, I'm confident playing The Squeakquel and actually enjoy singing along.

I am working with the WB to bring attention to this Soundtrack and encourage others to purchase it. I am being compensated but would say these things regardless.
