Safety Kids

Do you remember the Safety Kids? We listened to their tapes when we were kids, I don't know anyone else who has ever heard of them.

Mom where did you find them?

They were a club of kids who taught safety through song.

I often think in song, someone says something to me and I get a song stuck in my head until someone else says something and I think of a new song, in my head I live in a musical of all crazy mixed up music.

Usually days that are tough I get a safety kids song from my childhood. It is a song that talks about what to do if someone tries to steal you.....

"Sometimes, you just gotta yell and scream
sometimes it's the only thing to do
noisy as a firetruck you just have to open up and get the crowds attention turned to you. "

After each line is a Wooo wooo, fire truck sound.

Sometimes I just feel like that, I am sure you all do too. I never really knew this motherhood thing would have SO many challenging days. I am also proud to say my kids know this song by heart because I sing it to them every time they throw a fit.

Tomorrow I will have to write about great things, so I don't dwell on the negative.

We did the Safety kids too!!! Kind of weird...I haven't heard of anyone else who grew up with them either. The song I remember is the phone number song. And to always take a buddy to the movies (I think there was a book that went along with ours and that's the picture I remember).
Anyways, just wanted to let you know that there's at least one other person who has heard of the safety kids. :)

We loved the Safety Kids when we were young. My cousins and I sang to the tape over and over during a 6 hour drive. I thought our moms were going to go nuts, but we LOVED it! My favorite was a song about saying no to drugs. And of coure the theme song.
