It seems impossible, but my girl turned 4 this week! We celebrated by playing hooky from preschool, baking a homemade cake (with pink frosting, of course), and having our family over for pizza and presents.
Since she was born, Mia Belle has been my “Velcro baby” — stuck to me 24/7. And although she’s still a mama’s girl through and through, at 4 she is finally open to letting go of me in favor of her daddy, who takes her to ballet class and “Chikolay” (Chik-Fil-A) every week.
My favorite month of the year is coming up soon! Not only is June my birthday month, but it’s also when summer (my favorite season) begins. There’s so much to look forward to over the next few weeks, including this round-up of songs I put together.
My son’s school has the most precious tradition: a Mother’s Day Tea hosted by the two kindergarten classes. I heard about it last summer from another mom whose son had just finished kindergarten, and I’ve been looking forward to it ever since.
I have to say, this event definitely lived up to my expectations! Imagine 50 kindergarteners dressed in their Sunday best, serving their moms treats and performing songs about how much they love their moms…that’s what I got to experience last night :)
Over Easter, my family had the rare opportunity to all be together in one place at the same time. We met up in Denver, where my stepsister and her family hosted all 18 of us — including 8 kids ranging in age from 2 to 12!
We not only celebrated Easter, but also my mom’s 60th birthday. One of the things she really wanted was current photos of all of us, along with some of the entire family together.
It seems like just yesterday, I was sharing songs about snow and cold weather…and now here we are, fully immersed in spring repertoire! Trust me, I am NOT complaining about that ;)
Creating my May session plans always feels a little bittersweet, because that means the school year is almost over. Of course, we’ll still see many of our students and clients over the summer, but those of you in the school setting know that a lot changes after the school year ends.
Welcome! I’m Rachel Rambach, board-certified music therapist and creator of Listen & Learn Music — educational songs and musical materials for children. I love sharing my work with you, along with my behind-the-scenes creative process, adventures in business ownership, and life as a mom of two little ones.
Next month’s music therapy sessions, early childhood groups, or classroom music…planned for you in advance.
