Music Class

I thought I would do something fun with Jackson before the baby comes so I signed us up for two weeks of KinderMusik. The class is called Zoo train (right up his alley) and it is Wednesday/Friday this week and MWF next week for 45 minutes. After the first five minutes I wondered what the hell was I thinking?!?!? He was going out the door, down the hall, telling me no, you name it. Once things got started he shocked me. There were only three kids in the class praise GOD! One lady had to take her little girl out three times and the other little boy kept falling on the floor. I then thought to myself if we get nothing else out of this class I now know I am not alone! Well back to Jackson! He was really over all really good. He was the only one listening to Ms Gretchen and he copied everything she did (dancing, music instruments, singing, acting out animal noises, etc). He also let us all know when we switched to an activity he was not so into. It was great to watch him follow direction and pay attention so much to someone else (a complete stranger at that). I think it is going to be great and I hope we can continue something like this in the fall. It is a great way to get some structure into him, teach him how to follow direction, and use so many different motor skills. He loved the story at the end and sat almost in Ms Gretchen’s lap while she was readingJ. We got a copy of the CD and book so we can use them at home. He already has a favorite song and tries to sing along. I hope Friday is even better! When we got in the car he said, “Mommy fun friend’s music class”. That is priceless in my opinion!
