This is a silly post today because I realize music isn't rocket science nor is it some "must-have" mommy gadget that will suddenly make parenting a breeze, BUT, today when my toddler wanted to dance (love when he asks this vs, say, let's watch Curious Jorge for the bazzillionth time), I threw on some music and he "got down" toddler style. The music stayed on while I did the dishes and cut up strawberries. The music went from dance party to heartwarming folky (think, "Make This Place Your Home" by Phillip Phillips). It provided a really sweet soundtrack to the daily monotony that is my life, changing my often "sigh-worthy" activities into something a little more, hmmm, sentimental. Perhaps in the same vein as P&Gs salute to moms commercials #thankyoumom (gets me every time!). You know, because my kids are totally going to be future Olympians (how else do they plan to afford college?!?).
