    Making Family Life More Fun With Music | The Raging Kidiots

    One of the best ways to keep things light and fun in family life is to add music. It can instantly change the mood and lift the spirits of the whole gang when you crank up some tunes. My family is really big on dance parties. We dance to celebrate a good day. We dance when everyone is crabby to change things up. We dance in the car to make rides more fun. We have introduced our kids to some of our classic favorites: from James Taylor to Jay-Z, Fleetwood Mac to Foo Fighters. Michael Jackson is big in our house right now. We’ve always been grateful that our kids don’t insist on listening to Mickey Mouse or Elmo or the Frozen Soundtrack. Because kids’ music — ugh! Why does it have to be so BAD? But I recently discovered music made for kids that is fun and educational but is still music to parents’ ears as well. Enter The Raging Kidiots!

    The newest album from entertainer Bobby Bones, The Raging Kidiots is full of catchy tunes that kids will love because they are really silly and fun. But more importantly, parents will love them too. The songs teach kids how to remember the order of the planets and the important people in American History and pop culture. And other songs, like Be Nice (“because your mama said so, even when she says no…”) help to remind kids about good behavior through fun lyrics.

    You can download the album in iTunes now. I love having access to it in my iTunes account so I can play it at home through our Apple TV or in the car through the bluetooth capabilities on my phone (or just from your phone if your car isn’t bluetooth enabled). I even play it in the boys’ room through their bluetooth speakers. This is the one kid album that doesn’t make me want to put in ear plugs 🙂

    Does your family love music and dance parties? Are you stuck listening to ‘Let It Go’ on repeat or do your kids allow for more parent-friendly songs? I can’t wait to hear what you think about The Raging Kidiots!

    •  You know what is a great motivator? Not wanting to be outdone by your big bro. Cause look who's pulling himself up, so he can keep up  #quincysmilestones #calvinandquincy #lawdhelpme #charlieandcalsroomredo  There were very few baby things I hadn't yet tried by the time I had Quincy but I hadn't really used a sling before. I got my first sling when I was still pregnant with Q and tried it with Calvin, but once Cal was walking he never wanted to be carried. He's far too busy for all that. So Quincy is the first baby I've used a sling with, and I feel like I really missed out with the other two. I had and loved other carriers with them (and still do) but there is just something about the sling that is magical and it is my carrier of choice right now. It is convenient (you can keep it threaded and just throw it on), it is cozy, it doesn't tightly wrap behind my back which always makes me sweaty, and I can nurse while Quincy is in it which has been a lifesaver. I'm actually nursing him in this photo! I'm sharing photos from our recent visit to the pumpkin patch and how I got to do all the things with my family while wearing Quincy in the sling because I didn't have to stay with him in the stroller or go find a place to nurse him. He chilled, ate, and napped in my sling. And because I love it so much I'm teaming up with @mywildbird to give one reader a sling of their choice!

       And just like that, summer is back  Take me back to the fall weather of two days ago! Also, take me back to when this kid slept past 5 am and took naps. For a week now, between 4:30-5:30 am this kid climbs up on our bed over top of me and proceeds to squrim, poke, and annoy me till I get up. Quincy's sleeping till 6 or later FINALLY and now Calvin is waking me up!? And he refused to nap today (again) too. Seriously you guys, he's killin' me. He looks real cute in rain gear but if he does it again tonight he's headed to toddler military school. #sotiredineedanewwordfortired #calvins3rdyear #battlefieldmotherhood  The look you get when your mom puts on some JT for your photoshoot.
