Childhood memories

Day 03 – A song that reminds you of one or both of your parents

I can picture myself, maybe 10 years old, in the back seat of our family mini-van, listing to this song. I can picture it like it was yesterday. This song doesn’t mean that much to me, other than every time I hear it, I have this vivid memory of our family on a road trip. Enjoy!

Do you remember Raffi (@Raffi_RC)?

For those of you that are born in the 80’s, do you remember Raffi*? He sang songs like “Bumping Up and Down”, “Down by the Bay**” and “Baby Beluga”. Yeah. Right a bell? Saturday morning, there was nothing on TV, so searched YouTube on our Apple TV and found some awesome Raffi Playlists. Here are a few that I found:

I hope this makes your Sunday just a little bit brighter.

 

 

 

*Did you know that Raffi was an Egyptian-born Canadian singer-songwriter? Pretty awesome eh?

**Did you also know that there is a children’s book called “Down by the bay”? It’s only $7.95 at Chapters.

Cool stuff: Duplo

Do you remember Duplo? I do. It’s really great for kids. Gets their creative juices flowing if you know what I mean.

When I was out thrift store hunting yesterday and we saw a big ol’ bag of it. I wish I would have bought it. Once I got home, I took a look on Pinterest to see what cool stuff I could have made with it. Here’s my Pinterest board on Be Creative – Duplo.

 Did you ever play with Duplo? Do you remember anything you made with it? Do you have a cool pin that I should have a look at? 

Once my daughter starts playing with it, I’ll post some of her creations here.
