The Girls Mix Tape

I have been meaning to post this for awhile now. We’ve done a couple long road trips and music is somewhat of a sanity saver. Usually Bal and I play our own music while Brennyn grunts along and Kaya ignores us entirely watching her Bobs & Lolo DVD over and over and over again. But occasionally Kaya wants some dancing music. The girls are pretty damn good at the bee-boppin-kickin-squealin car seat dance-n’-giggle!

This is my non-kids-music kids playlist. I have to admit, it gets played even without a request. Especially if Bal starts slouching in the drivers seat. He doesn’t know it but when I see the slouch, in goes this playlist and as if by magic, he sits back up and starts singing away. Well this or JT. Because Bal loves singing to JT!

  1. Sweet mix! So many great tunes!
    Are you burning it for friends???!!!??
    And hey, I hope you’re not knockin’ the JT. He makes my heart pidder padder.

  2. I can totally burn it for friends!

    Oh, and so not knocking JT. I LOVE him! Bal rolled his eyes when I first put JT in on a roadtrip. Not even half a song later he was tapping his hands and before long, singing along. Now it is expected every road trip, followed up with the inevitable comment that ‘He can do everything, man. Sing, dance, act, play golf, basketball…’ Now I tease Bal about his man crush 😉
