Thrifty confessions

Oh boy! my son won't speak to me never again if he knows what I'm confessing here.
As a mother, I believe in supporting my child artistic development :)
Still with me? Great! So, I'm teaching him how to express his emotions through songs. Chicago, Mariah Carey & Celine Dion are the best for 'drama' theme. We act the songs following the story and talking is not allowed...LOL.
Tonz. of fun, believe me! Whoever has a long way driving back home & wants to spend some quality time with the lil' ones, this is the best mom/kids entertainment I can recommend.
Where do I get my tunes?
