Every morning at 10 am the littles and I stop what we’re doing and turn on music. Sometimes it’s classical, sometimes it’s worship, sometimes it’s the soundtrack to Jemma’s favorite movie – whatever it is, we rock out! We dance, we sing, and we pick up toys to a beat. I call it The Music Hour.
I’d be tooting my own horn if I said I was proud of our daily music time. But, hey, this is my blog so I’m going to play this trumpet all day long! It’s truly a blessing to be present. To be silly. To just BE with my children. Music makes us all happy and I look forward to many, many more years of The Music Hour with my sweethearts.
I’ve been reading up on the importance of music for little one’s brain development and cognitive skills; there is so much research on this topic! Music is absolutely crucial when it comes to stretching children’s creativity, gaining balance, learning patterns, and gathering skills that will later help them be successful in math and other subjects. Here are a few of my recent reads:
