The Soundtrack of our Lives

Up Kind of DayDear Friends,

Every day we are surrounded by noise. It can be a pleasant sound or an annoying sound; you get to choose. Have you ever tried watching a movie without the sound? The background music is almost invisible until you turn down the volume.

What is the soundtrack of your life? Do you have trouble getting your children to do anything around the house? If you do it could be that your children do not have routines in their lives.

I would like to give you the playlist for your daily soundtrack!

Track 1. Polite Request sung by the parent

Track 2. Ignore the Request sung by the child

Track 3. Bribing and Negotiation sung by the parent

Track 4. Nagging; that Same Old Song sung by the parent

Track 5. Met with More Deaf Ears sung by the child

Track 6. Command with a Threat of Punishment sung by the parent

Track 7. Scream and Holler Time sung by the parent

Track 8. Reluctant Child Dragging their Feet sung by the child

Track 9. I’ll just Give Up and Do it Myself sung by the parent

Track 10. Eye Roll, Sigh and Slamming Door Blues by the beaten down parent

Track 11. Martyred Attitude Again sung by the parent.

Have you heard this soundtrack too many times? Are you tired of it! The same ole same ole; we have to change that tune to get a different result. This is why we came up with real music to make a big difference in the lives of your children and you!

We want to teach them routines in a way that is fun and energetic. Songs can become timers. Music gets our feet moving. We can set the tone for our day. Music inspires. Our music can become your voice. You no longer have to sing that nagging martyred song. You can join in and set the example.

Children are going to listen to music anyway; we wanted to give them something that was written for them that parents would like too. After all if you can’t stand it; you won’t let them play it. Every child from two years old to thirteen who has heard these songs can’t stop moving. Every parent that has listened has been so excited about the variety of our music and our wonderful lyrics.

Our songs give us something to do. They help to replace our own negativity with positive messages. They are peppy and easy to sing along with. I can’t wait to see all the wonderful ways that you are going to use this CD to help train your children. We have clips of all the songs on our website.

Are you ready to change tiresome soundtrack of your life and fill it with an Up Kind of Day! Our title track says it all! Here are the lyrics. Just imagine your child waking up to this song each morning in their CD alarm clock. What a way to start your day!

Up Kind of Day sung by Andy Dodge copyright 2017 FlyLady and Co.,Inc.

Sometimes I think that Sun is rising too soon
Can I just pull the covers over my head?
But then I think of all I’ve got to do now
The first thing is to get my body out of this bed

So I get up! Up! Here I go
Even if I’m starting slow
I’m smilin’, I’m groovin’
Gotta get this body movin’
Thinking up! Up! Kind of thoughts
Gonna give this new day all I’ve got
And in no time at all, things are going my way
Gonna have an up! Up! Kind of day

I know sometimes there will be things that get me down
My day won’t always go the way that I plan
But I’m a tough kid, I can deal with it
I’ll make the best of it, I know that I can

So I get up! Up! Here I go
Even if I’m starting slow
I’m smilin’, I’m groovin’
Gotta get this body movin’
Thinking up! Up! Kind of thoughts
Gonna give this new day all I’ve got
And in no time at all, things are going my way
Gonna have an up! Up! Kind of day

Even if my day seems low
Nowhere for my dreams to go
I’ll still reach for the sky
It’s time to watch me fly!

So I get up! Up! Here I go
Even if I’m starting slow
I’m smilin’, I’m groovin’
Gotta get this body movin’
Thinking up! Up! Kind of thoughts
Gonna give this new day all I’ve got
And in no time at all, things are going my way
Gonna have an up! Up! Kind of day
