Get this music out of my head!

I taught Elijah how to turn the stereo on. I thought it was a great idea. I leave his Wiggles, Playschool and Justine Clarke CDs in the stereo and he decides when he wants to listen to them.

Problem is, he wants to listen to them ALL THE TIME!

Now I don't get MY music stuck in my head anymore, I get "Dorothy the Dinosaur", "Bonjour Mes Amis" or "I Like to Sing" stuck in there.

And they won't leave!

These songs are having a party in my brain. Soon, they'll take over. They'll be permanent squatters.

Hello? Maybe he just likes music, period. Go head and leave a record of your choice on. AND, you should be glad you aren't a preschool teacher. We sing the good-morning song and the alphabet song daily. Not to mention the counting song and the colors song and the shapes song.

He does like music in general, but teaching him to use the stereo was a response to his asking for "Pwayschool pwease". He particularly likes this one because he does the actions to the music (most of which he worked out himself).

He doesn't have the same reaction to my music. It's like a switch has come on and he can tell what is geared to his level. Playschool is specifically for two- to four-year-olds, so it's right on the money.

Mumma -- Looking over your blog - and I must say that Elijah has GOT to be one of the CUTEST children on the entire PLANET (he sO looks like he could belong to ME!) -- and for that reason alone I think he should be allowed to listen to HIS music whenever he wants and ... you should SING ALONG!!! (not that i get a vote - but i always dO anyway!)

Thanks for stopping by, Melli. For the record, I do sing along, when he allows it. I think he prefers the recorded voices to mine, sadly. *sigh* He used to love my singing.
