I love music.

It is truly the one thing that can melt away stress and make me a more pleasant person almost instantly. While I would've loved to make a career out of singing, that was never really an option for me so instead I dove into being an educator and mama. Because music is a constant in our lives, it didn't take long before my children took an interest as well. My oldest is undoubtedly a musically inclined child too. She has a great set of pipes and does pretty well with the piano too. My younger daughter also sings beautifully and will hopefully begin taking guitar lessons in the near future. Both of our boys also love to sing, but it is yet to be determined if that's the beginning or end of their talent. To me, music is a huge part of life.

We've all been there.

As parents, we've all had that moment when our child has just spent time coloring, drawing, or crafting a work of art. They proudly waltz over to you as if someone just handed them a winning trophy and then ask, "Mama, do you like it?" You, like me, probably did your very best to NOT say, "what the heck is that?" Instead, you smile lovingly and say, "Tell me about your creation, darling." It isn't until then that you realize that what looked like a blob with a tree on it's head is actually a very carefully drawn unicorn. You then follow up with, "Honey, that is the most beautiful unicorn I have ever seen."
