Check this out!

Yesterday, I posted a link to Do Fun Stuff on iTunes because I wanted to help out Ryan Marshall  and his beautiful family over at Pacing the Panic Room.  http://pacingthepanicroom.blogspot.com/2010/08/look-at-what-we-went-did.html

Apparently the big push landed the album at the top of the Children's music charts.  Do Fun Stuff is currently battling it out with Yo Gabba Gabba for the number one spot.  When I checked it about 10 min. ago Yo Gabba Gabba had edged us out but I think if we keep pushing, we can take over that top spot again.

So, with that said, if you checked out my post but didn't click on the monster and listen to some of the music on the Do Fun Stuff album, go ahead and do that now.  I'm telling you, if you have kids, they are going to like these songs.

My kids like Pass It On.  I like Always a Blue Sky, Nothing, Ladybug and Morton the Caterpillar.  We have been listening to these songs here since Saturday and the honest to goodness truth is that they are great, kid friendly songs that don't make me want to pull my hair out by the handfuls.  Well worth the $9.95 price tag.

Also, if you don't follow Ryan yet.  You really should.  He's smart, he's funny and he's also not afraid to lay out all of his frustrations and keep it real. 

If you haven't seen this video,

please watch it now. 

This beautiful little boy is the reason for this album and you can find out more about SMS or "Smith Magenis Syndrome" here.

Please help any way you can.

I'm helping a web friend today.

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted anything new and noteworthy.  I'm happy to be making my comeback into the blogging community by helping a web friend and his beautiful family.

I've been following Ryan over at http://www.pacingthepanicroom.com/ since about 25 weeks into Cole's pregnancy with Tessa.  I love his blog.  I love his insights, his photography and thanks to him, we now have a Canon 7D in our camera bag. (Thanks Ryan!)

Please, click on this monster above and go over to iTunes and buy this album.  It's kid songs and fun kid friendly songs for parents.  My three kids have already chosen their favorite songs.  100% of the proceeds go to research for SMS.  For more information click on the "Our Cause" button above. 

If you don't have the $9.95 to download the album or if you feel that $9.95 just isn't enough, please click on the Make a Donation and contribute what you can to a great cause. 

Thank you Ryan for allowing me to be a part of your web storm.  It's an honor.  Squeeze the Littlest Buddy for me and here's my sincerist wish for Do Fun Stuff to chart on iTunes.  I've written my review and rated the album.

PS:  If you want to help me spread the word about this album you can click on the "share this widget" and add the monster to your own post.  I know that Ryan and Cole will be most appreciative if you do.
