Who is it? Uncle Moishy of course!
We are not related to Uncle Moishy, but my daughter sure wishes we were. As I am writing this she is dancing next to the computer to the sounds of Uncle Moishy - Volume 12
. She can't get enough of him. She enjoys him so much so that she gets upset on Shabbos when she can't watch him. She now understands and tells others at shul, "Uncle Moishy is sleeping. It's Shabbos. Uncle Moishy sleeping on Shabbos."
My nine-month son has different musical tastes. Each night when my wife gives my daughter a bath, my son and I listen to Yosef Karduner or Matisyahu. These are his two favorites and he excitedly kicks his feet to their music.
Our nighttime listening sessions are interrupted as soon as my daughter gets out of the bathtub and hears Yosef Karduner or Matisyahu. Hearing a non-Uncle Moishy CD causes her to yell, "TURN THE MUSIC OFF! TURN IT OFF!!!". For my daughter the entire world of music is easily divided into two groups: a) non-Uncle Moishy music, and b) Uncle Moishy music. She insists on listening to him in the car and now when she watches television all she wants to watch is the Uncle Moishy Chol Hamoed Pesach 2004 DVD.
My daughter made it clear who her favorite musical artist is on Sunday morning at the Jewish book store. Her strong little two-year-old voice could be heard reverberating off the walls, "NEW UNCLE MOISHY. WANT NEW UNCLE MOISHY. ....UNCLE MOISHY!!"
Yes, we caved in. We now have a new Uncle Moishy CD to add to our vast collection of CDs and DVDs.
