we are a family that loves music! with six kids, we could practically start our own band. growing up, music defined so many milestones in my life, and I want my own children to develop this passion for music as well. my first memories of music in my life were dancing in the backseat of my mom's car (i guess, back when seatbelts were uncool), and always carrying my kid's suitcase record player around with a cyndi lauper record. i was a child of the 80's and even then, music was my life.
now, that record player is a thing of the past, and has been replaced with an ipod, but my love of music has never faded. we even have speakers installed throughout our house now, just for music. when we are in the car, we usually can't get out of the driveway without someone saying "turn the music up"!
how do we incorporate music into our everyday? even though music is on often at our house, we use music as a therapeutic resource as well. 4 of our children have ADHD and it was recommended by their doctor to have music playing during their homework times. to get the wiggles out and rehydrate our brains, we often take regular homework breaks as well, which usually results in a 5 minute dance party in our living room. we turn it up and sing it loud.
jason and i spend a lot of time with our kids, and prefer it that way. whether, playing dance central on xbox, going to concerts and music festivals, singing karaoke, rocking out in our car, or having crazy dance parties at home, music is a huge part of our life. there's one thing for sure... we are a family who rocks!
