munchkin music

One of the nice things about reading other people’s blogs is that sense that you are not alone in what’s going on in your life.  Whether it is a child’s adamant refusal to eat, or even try, certain foods or another mom’s struggle with children’s music. Somehow it makes you feel not quite so alone in your struggles to raise a toddler.

A few weeks ago I wrote about my need to find the munchkin new music. Well, I actually had some success. I found some music by doing searches on my own that night (and staying up way later than I intended). But there was also a moment of kismet – the same day that I had written that post, the munchkin had a play date at a friend’s house while I went in for a sonogram. I came back to find all of the kids dancing around and playing musical instruments. It was fabulous. Exactly what I wanted my little one to be doing. The following week I got some CDs from her and added to my collection. I was actually somewhat shocked at how excited the munchkin was at some of the Disney songs that I didn’t even realize she liked.

So between the music that K gave me and the tons that I bought, we now have a revised collection that doesn’t include Dora or Sesame Street. We can easily take an hour car ride and she’ll sing the entire way. I also get a kick watching her dance around the house to some of the songs, even using a microphone and getting up on a makeshift stage.

Since I know that I’m not alone in my need to find decent music for a toddler to listen to, that doesn’t make me want to tear my hair out, I decided to put up an imix of a small selection. This is some of her current favorites, or at least those that are available on itunes. Hopefully this will help inspire others.
