Music is a vital part of our lives. I even shared before how good our life is with music. There is no single day that my kids and I don’t listen to our favorite songs or dance to our favorite beat.
My son has always been a music-lover. He could sing, dance, or play musical instruments the whole day. True story. 🙂
Have you seen a toddler rocking the harmonica?
And still rocking the violin as “mini guitar”? LOL
That’s my Zion, my little rockstar! I’d be glad to be his manager if ever he decides to drop out of school to form a one-man band. LOL 😀
On the other hand, my daughter Zooey, who just started Kindergarten last month, seemed to love singing and dancing more now, after learning many new children’s songs from her school. After a month of attending classes, I was very surprised that her recent favorites include “Kids’ Prayer”and “Lupang Hinirang”. Yes, the latter is our country’s national anthem. Haha I don’t mean to make fun of it but I just find it bizarre how she really likes to recite this almost randomly, everyday – whether we just woke up, or are eating dinner, or about to go to sleep.. just about anytime.
Also, the “Kid’s Prayer (I love YOU Jesus)“, was totally new to me. I haven’t heard of it before, though it sounded familiar the first time we watched it on Youtube. Quick back story.. it was more than two weeks ago when Zooey taught me about this new song she learned in school. I always ask about her school day and one afternoon, she told me about their prayer song. She doesn’t speak English and the song was new to her, so it was pretty hard to decipher what it was. For days, we tried to google the broken lyrics but couldn’t figure out, so she just hum the tune while teaching me the actions.
We were like.. “Nanananana nanana nanana..” with actions. Haha
Then three days ago, she’s able to sing it better. Her words were clearer and made more sense. So we googled the lyrics and searched the video on YouTube. Ten seconds later, she declared in excitement: “Kana mommy, KANAAAA!!!” (“that’s the one, mommy”) pointing to the YouTube video below.
She knew it was the one, even before playing it, since they watch it in school. Yep, according to her, they have a large TV screen in their room and they often watch YouTube videos. I thought to myself, “Wow! We never had that before! Sosyal ha!” Hihi
Aside from singing, Zooey likes dancing too. She absolutely enjoyed joining the Jollibee Kids Talent Camp last summer.
And is simply happy jogging with Zion,
Plus this is a bonus as I just uploaded this short clip on YouTube for this post.. This is a very common scene inside our bedroom when I throw in some music. Watch my kids whip.. “Watch Me Nae Nae”
(Please excuse Zion who’s throwing things out. Geezzz!)
Prepare to see the super fun side of Zooey! (She’s watching a video, trying to follow the dance steps. Hahahaha)
