Blog Bash: Review and Contest

Hello party-bloggers! Raise your hand if you are tired of the typical kids music (can anyone say "Barney?") that just kind of tends to make you go slowly insane?
(Here's me raising my own hand....way up high.)

I'll admit that while I love, love, love kiddie shows, baby toys, and reading story books until I am blue in the face. And while I'm a huge music lover, there are limits to how many times I can sing (or listen to) "I love you, you love me...".

I mean, seriously.

So it was with some major trepidation that I popped the Frances England "Family Tree" Cd into my player. I was expecting "cutesy" and repetitive and annoying and was immediately proven wrong when I realized I had a smile on my face just a few bars into the first track, for which the CD is named.
Frances England's voice is sweet, playful, and sophisticated all at the same time. And her lyrics? Let's just say that I have played this CD so many times while driving, with and without Buttercup in the car, that I have every song memorized and unabashedly sing along.

It's folk, it's indie, and wonderful fun to listen to, with or without your children humming along in the background.

Want to win a copy? Pay attention cuz this is a two-step entry process.

1)Leave me a berrie (read:comment) telling me what you and your kids love listening to right now.
2) Do you remember what kind of cake Buttercup had for her first birthday? It's pretty easy to find either on this blog or here. Email me your guess at by June 27 and you are in the running for one copy of the "Family Tree" CD.
Contest ends on June 27 and a winner will be announced on June 28, at the end of the Go-Baby sponsored blog bash.


The following have been selected as prize winners:
* Jenna has won the Honeychunks prize, which includes a sample of the Foaming Cleanser and six reusable homemade baby wipes.
* Mommy Meryl has been selected as the winner of the Baby Banz prize pack.
* Rachel has won the very popular Circle of Sentiments Mommy Necklace!

Be sure to email me if you have been named a winner so I can get your prizes to you. And make sure to come back for the Blog Bash finale, where I will name the lucky winners of our Go Baby sponsored prizes and our week's winners from the blog bash contests.

We have been listening to a mixed cd of classic songs from Disney movies but my son also loves the Baby Einstein music cd's, he listens to the lullabies each night and in the day we pop in a Baby Bach or Baby Mozart, he loves music!

I e-mailed you re: the necklace, but I wasn't sure if it was the right address so I'm posting here as well because I couldn't find a different one and haven't heard back.
