Everyday Adventures: CD for Kids

everyday cdThanks for coming to have a listen and look at my last CD “Everyday Adventures”. I created it to celebrate all the magic that happens in a family with young children. How lucky I was to have babies in my 40s and to be able to craft a piece of work that called on all my years of songwriting and recording AND my abundant love and gratitude for my family and my role as a mom.

Here is “The Cool Alphabet Song”, my first video, which happily went viral and reaches and teaches children all around the world:

Here’s one that teaches kids what to eat when they have a tummy ache. The original track used the word “poo” but I later found out that many stores won’t carry kids’ cds with “explicit” lyrics. Here is the track that ended up on the CD and below the same song with the original racy lyrics that kids like soooooo much better ;)

Teaching kids how to feed their pets, this Beach Boys-esque song won a song contest in Louisville kentucky over 10 years ago. It was also used on a high fashion, Italian kids clothes website. I open my shows with this one and get everyone making animal sounds:

And here’s a good dance song for kids with lots of toy percussion in the track, co written with my stepson colin (when he was 13 or so) and featured in Ladies’ Home Journal:
