Dirty Diaper!

A well-timed song can change a child’s mood from bad to good. This rhyme is for distracting a baby/toddler (and hopefully the caregiver) during diaper-changing time.

(to the Tune of Frere Jacques)
Stinky diaper, stinky diaper,
Changing time, changing time.
Let’s take off the dirty one,
Let’s put on a clean one,
Glad you're mine, glad you're mine!

To Whole Foods, To Whole Foods...

When was the last time your typical parent went to the market to buy a fat hog? A fat pig? A plum bun, perhaps? Never, I'd bet! This is my update of the traditional Mother Goose rhyme, "To Market, To Market," including items more likely to be found on the modern privileged American's shopping list.

Hoppy Easter! Hope everyone gets as many (or as few) Cadbury Creme Eggs as they desire!

Giddy Up Kawaii Horsie

Babies love bouncing. These two traditional nursery rhymes give you an opportunity to make that happen. Bounce child on your knee, then switch to the other knee at the end of the rhyme and repeat.
