I have a confession. At least a year ago, my sister-in-law Aimee and I swapped some children's DVD's. I believe she returned mine, but I haven't returned hers...and I'm kinda loathe to do it.
The DVD I borrowed is Praise Baby: Sleepytime Lullabies. It's quite similar to the Baby Einstein videos -- they have images of kids, animals, animation etc. that are set to music. Rather than classical music, they are set to to popular praise and worship songs.
It. Is. Great!
I don't know about other people's experience with this collection of videos, but for my kids, it's like magic. They can be grumpy and irritating each other. Then I pop in the video, and they are much more content and singing along to the songs. It also makes me feel better if I'm in a grumpy mood. And let's get real, if my kids are grumpy and irritated, then chances are that they've made me that way too. So really, it's a win-win for all of us...just as long as I don't return the video. (Just kidding Aimee...I'll return the video...someday.)
