a song that comes to mind that i've always liked and i find very moving is the hallelujah chorus. anytime i hear it, i get choked up. there is just something about it. this is one thing i miss about being part of a church. i sung in the choir and i loved the christmas program. i've considered joining a community choir. maybe, now that i'm a SAHM, i might have the time (haha).
i love music. all varieties. oldies, 80s, hip hop, country, rockabilly, classical. the funny thing is, i don't buy music. our newest cds are all burned by friends. i have an ipod, but i hardly update it. i kind of just forget about music. i have been trying to play more to expose arden to it. if she's freaking out in the car, usually classical music chills her out. i recently created a station on pandora based on 'they might be giants' kids music. i don't question turning on stations that i like to listen to when arden is around. of course, i make sure the lyrics are clean and the 'mood' of the music isn't inappropriate for how she's feeling.
i want her to like music as much as i do. i want her to have a well rounded education, and music is important for that to happen. what do you guys think about music, in relation to yourselves and/or your kid(s)? leave a comment or blog about it. :)
as an aside, arden is become quite the acrobat while BFing. it's like she's trying to crawl away while eating. it's been making things interesting, especially if i'm nursing her before bed. any tips?
