Yeah, why not the whole week? The kids said I was starting to throw out the Mother’s Day “card” a bit early when I asked them to do something for me yesterday, but I think today is a great time to start celebrating mothering.
The Ollibean Creed is made up of all of the things that we think are helpful and relevant for parents of kids with and without disabilities or “special needs”. This week it will serve as a Mamafesto in honor of Mother’s Day.
Day 1 will focus on Turn It Up to 11 & Bust a Move … Music!
Music is such a big part of our household. We dance, sing, listen to it way too loudly in the car, so loudly that my sister’s kids call our preferred volume “Aunt Lolly Loud”.
Particular songs mark our timelines-kind of like a family soundtrack.
Remember the summer in Atlanta?
You mean the “Hips Don’t Lie” / “Animal Crackers” summer or “Feel Good, Inc” / Gnarls Barkeley “Crazy” summer?
Whatever song that was heavy on our family playlist is tied to the memory of that point in time. Luckily, we share a fondness for playing a song over and over and over. Or at least the kids have indulged my love of the repeat.
So, in honor of Mother’s Day Week, is there a song that makes you think about why you love being a mom? Or a song that just reminds you of your family ? Or just a song you love? Share it!
We have adorable refrigerator magnets with the Ollibean Creed on them that we would love to share and will send the first 10 people that post their fav song here or on our FB page.
