Row, Row, Row Your Boat to Bed Heather Hopson January 23, 2013 Uncategorized Dear Diary, As a stay-at-home mom, I had endless hours to bond with my baby. We danced, sang, cuddled and played throughout the day. I enjoyed this time and didn’t look forward to going back to work, even though I missed adult interactions. Sharing my experience with one of my best friends, she told me that most women would want to be in my position but couldn’t afford to take the time off. I imagined what it would be like to work full-time with a newborn. Now that I’m back to work , I use the Internet to create quality time with my daughter. Before bedtime, I play Pandora (babies LOVE music, and at such a young age, you don’t have to censor your selections, although I have added the Disney and Baby Einstein stations to my playlist.) Caitlynn and I dance and exercise. It’s quality not quantity time, since it doesn’t take hours of interaction to make her smile, stretch and start her day. When she was younger, I found this adorable music video for the song Row, Row, Row Your Boat. Besides listening and watching, I sat with my legs in a V, and we rocked back and forth to the beat, rowing an imaginary boat. The song’s short, but the memories will last a lifetime. Here’s another super cute song from super simple learning. You can clap, jump, and sing with your baby, who will really get into the BINGO video. My daughter loves jumping to the beat of all the letters at the end. Hey DFTM fam–What are your favorite musical videos that you watch with your little ones?
