When Mum Used to Listen to Cool Music

By Yourfamilysurvivalcoach @shari_brewer

When this Mum used to listen to cool music, it was, it seems, a long, long time ago. Sigh. In the flurry of children’s entertainment which I embrace to keep the peace, it seems my own love of music has taken a very much back seat. Home alone time, is rare, and it’s home alone time when a cranked up stereo sounds its very best. Lately the music to my ears has either been the dub-step beat enjoyed (really??) by my Mr Big Boy, the clarinet practice of my Middle Young Man or the fignernails-on-chalkboard of Justine Clarke. (I know the gorgeous Justine is a well, loved and entertaining Play School presenter …. but please lady …. no more music clips!!)

I must say that the producers of children’s music have done their market research very well, it’s a true craft linking lyrics and tunes into a rhythmic sequence. Successful artists in this genre mange to create music that not only engages kiddies but also sends Mums and Dads half round the bend. These days, if there’s a tune in my head demanding to be hummed it’s more likely to be The Wiggles rather than The Screaming Tribesmen and that, my friends, is a sign of needing to get out more ;)

So if my music playlist has gone from



how’s yours looking??

I’m joining up again with the lovely Cass Can Sew for her Sunday Session #4, and she’s also wiggling this week. What have you been listening to?
