Diamonds on the soles of her shoes...

Kids always have a certain type of music that they absolutely love and will stop everything they are doing to dance/sing a long. While I was pregnant Aaron loved heavy metal, mainly Metallica, mainly the song Enter Sandman (messed up, right?), Jill my free spirit on the other hand loved Sublime, mainly the song What I got (better than Enter Sandman at least). When they were newbies they loved listening to country station on the TV rather than listening to the classical music on their swings. Then we were over the country and became fans of nature sounds, that was great, I felt like I had to pee every five seconds, but they were happy. Then we were fans of Beatles (YES YES YES) lullabies. Now that they are toddlers anything from Sesame Street or the Wiggles will make them "break it down" if you will. But now, my lovely daughter, she has a fascination with Ladysmith Black Mambazo. For real! The love affair started with Sesame Street's 25th musical celebration....


I passed this little nugget onto my sister Cathy and she sent me this...


I had no sooner hit play and Jill saw Ladysmith Black Mambazo on my computer and was in my lap dancing along to the song. Maybe this means I have a highly cultured child?
And what's Aaron's favorite? Well he'll dance to Dave Matthews Band (YES YES YES), and he laughs when the Andrews Sisters come on, but other than that he is quite content with Sesame Street and the Wiggles.

Whoops gotta run, apparently a room full of toys isn't enough and they need to have a knock down drag out over the same toy!

Ah Amanda - those kids are little South Africans in hiding! Bring them over for a visit. Off course Ladismith Black Mambazo is South African and Dave Matthews is also! (Did you know that?)

So cute & funny! What an eclectic taste of music! My girls love all types but Barbie and the Diamond Castle is their fave (AGH!)
