My toddler loves music — Does yours?
In our house it could be anything from totally inappropriate songs they he may catch us listening to, all the way to the Cars soundtrack. Which I can hang with because some of the kids music today isn’t all that bad.
It is a long way from Raffi like when I was a kid. Hold on a second here… moms — you guys remember Raffi? Down by the bay… where the watermelons grow… You know… that guy?
Well if I had to have another decade of that I would probably shoot myself! Thanks but no thanks!
Back to my point!
Kids songs today are actually cool and heck some of them are even performed by the coolest rock groups some of us have ever loved, like They Might Be Giants!
I wanted to share the albums we listen to and love in our house, maybe it will inspire some of you guys to crawl out of your horrible kids cd collection and up into the world of tolerable kids tunes?
They Might Be Giants : No! 1 of 9How can you be a parent and not love They Might Be Giants.
I absolutely LOVE this CD and we were lucky enough to see them live when our toddler was just a few weeks old.
Our oldest who was a toddler then LOVED it!
I highly recommend this one!
