To a toddler, there are few things in life better than the wild abandon that goes along with dancing. It just so happens that toddlers are the very best dancers.
A most necessary component to said awesomeness? Power. Batteries, music, SOMETHING. Other than us all the time.
Which, listen – I don’t mind doing, I geek out and do it rather often. Singing all the toddler songs and then some. (My repertoire is fierce). Their father is a professional musician who can get them dancing better than I most times.
But sometimes, sometimes – we are grateful for the reprieve that technology brings us … with all of its blinky bright humming wonder. Whether it’s a music video on YouTube, an amped up concert in a park somewhere, songs from their favourite shows, or music playing from whatever gadget is handy that we can plug into a speaker…if we aren’t powered up at least half the time, it’s a first world problem, let me tell you.
I used to think that perhaps we were too dependent on technology (of course we are!) and that I wouldn’t allow half of the battery operated toys that have ended up meandering into our home. Phhht! How naive we are, hmmm? Us idealistic parents on the threshold of the mad brilliance that is parent-hood…
Toddler tech-gear and the power that keeps them entertained? I salute thee. Introducing the newest duo in line to lightly (I cannot stress this enough) parody all that is gangnam style…
