What Happened to BB Tuesday and Exploring Music with Kids
So in this episode, I explain what all has been going on these last few weeks and then we get into talking about music. My kids were the bulk of the episode and they did such a great job being behind the mic for the first time! I did have to stop quite a bit to take away loud things and calm down the hype (hey, they're kids) but it was a pretty good little interview. Enjoy!!
