It is no secret that I love to sing. Noah loves to listen to music and sing along too. When you are a parent there will come a time when your child is crying uncontrollably. You might not be able to pick them up and comfort them if it happens in the car. Just ask me, once I had to sing the Car-X theme song. You know Rattle rattle thunder clatter boom boom don’t worry call the Car-X man over and over again while driving through Virginia. I am not sure why that particular song worked when no other did, I was just thankful it worked. His toy had stopped working and I guess he was not happy about it so I improvised. I sang anything I could think of. I didn’t have a Smartphone back then; I had a flip phone so apps were unheard of for me. Now this uncontrollable crying incident or being bored or just wanting to listen to music can happen anywhere. I can’t carry a TV, a CD player or a DVD player everywhere but I always have my phone. Now you can share apps with your children to teach them, and to entertain them.
One of Noah’s favorite songs now has its own app, 5 Little Monkeys. This app is adorable. I love when mama calls the doctor. It is funny and entertaining too. The graphics are great, the monkeys are too cute. It is something your child can spend a lot of time doing without driving you crazy. I know that some apps are very annoying, 5 Little Monkeys is a great educational app that will help your child learn important vital skills. Some of the skills are cognitive skills, memorization and counting. It can even teach your child pitch if you dream of having a future rock star.
