You Know You're a Mother When: Musical Changes

You Know You're a Mother When: Musical Changes

Pre-baby, a hip lady may know all of the songs playing on the Top 40 countdown. When she enters motherhood, she may start humming a different tune. She may find herself singing "Elmo's World" while in line at the grocery store or bouncing around to "I Like to Move It, Move It" as she finishes up household chores. Cruising moms will find the old classic "The Wheels on the Bus" hard to remove from her memory. Her playlists will quickly be taken over by lyrics that will please her tot — mostly because those little fingers have taken possession of mama's iPhone. Husbands and wives trade late night karaoke sessions at the bar with impromptu duets of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, and "I Love You, You Love Me" in their little one's bedroom. Even if it means knowing all the words to every song in The Little Mermaid instead of Rihanna's latest CD, most mommies wouldn't have it any other way.

I think this is very true! When I was in college at my cousins babysitting I said to her did you hear the new song on the radio and she said so seriously "Hmm, no but that new Wiggles song is rocking" I laughed so hard. And she used to be so up and up on music, it was so funny and so true.

When I was really young, my musical taste was totally cultivated by what my father played around the house. My favorite band when I was 2 was Van Halen! Also grew up with Dire Straits, the Police, James Taylor, Elton John, Led Zepplin, etc. I think it's great to play "real" music for your kids. I'm already making playlists of Rufus Wainwright, Coconut Records, Matt & Kim, and classic rock for my little-one-to-come. Agreed that I'll filter out any down and dirty hip hop, but I don't see the need to only listen Radio Disney.

I was in the car the other day, listening to my Ipod and a song came on that has real dirty lyrics and I suddenly realized I just can't do that anymore, since I have a baby with me now. She's too young to understand, but still... I can't wait for her to listen to Rolf Zuckowski. He's been real popular with lil kids when I was young and I want her to love his music just as much as I did!
