As fans of Prince are mourning the loss of a musical icon, our family sits around listening to his discography. One may ask themselves - when is the right time to introduce your kids to Prince? The answer: in utero.
While I didn't get too many cravings while I was pregnant, I did find myself developing musical cravings for the synthesizer pop of "Let's Go Crazy" and "When Doves Cry."
My husband is very apt at creating playlists. In preparation for the births of our children, he created special playlists for the OR. Timothy's playlist included "I Would Die 4 U"; Richard's had "Let's Go Crazy".
As a new mom, who had no recollection of appropriate baby lullabies, I sang "1999" while changing my newborn's diapers or burping them.
When the TV news started playing "1999" before a commercial break, both kids perked up. They turned to the TV and started saying "dance, dance" as they bobbed up and down. We started them young.
