My daughter, just before her 4th birthday, playing the theme from the New World Symphony by Dvorak:

Yesterday was Kindermusik day. Actually, last Friday was Kindermusik day but we were under tornado and flash flood warnings so we made up our class yesterday.
I have so much fun at Kindermusik–I’m not sure if it is more of a treat for Baby Diva or for me.
With Baby Diva’s heart defect, we had to take extra precautions so we did not get out much in the beginning. Now I am just desperate to do something fun during the day and also to give Baby Diva a chance to play with other babies and adults. Most of the other women I know with young babies have moved away, one of the perils of the military life. Playgroups in the area are either closed to new members and/or they are for ages 18 months and up. I’d start one of my own, but we are moving soon.
So, for the next couple of months Kindermusik fits the bill for us perfectly.
We get music, movement, and social interaction. Baby Diva loves it so much she was fine pushing back her normal morning nap about an hour. She was cooing and giggling up in the car and right up until I put her down for the nap, at which she promptly passed out without protest.
Baby Diva even allowed someone else to hold her and walk her six feet away from me! We mommies switched babies and Baby Diva had a ball with someone else swinging her around.
I don’t know whether to celebrate or to cry. Actually, wait, no… I do. Celebrate. Definitely celebrate.
