We did not play ANYTHING new this week on Ages 3 and Up!. But then, who says you have to, right? Instead of focusing on new material we decided to focus on Dads, because we were celebrating Father’s Day. We had songs about Dads, father-daughter teams, multiple generations of musical families playing songs about families, AND (my favorite) we had guys singing lullabies. Normally you think of lullabies as a Mom thing, but Dads sing them too, and I think that’s really, incredibly GREAT.
