One of the job descriptions for a mama is that she sing to her lovebugs. At least that is one of my job descriptions. I absolutely loved rocking them in the rocking chair when they were babies and singing to them. Now I get to sing to them after I have tucked them in for the night and before I give them kisses.
One of the songs I sing is a lullaby I made up when Afton was a baby. Here are the words.
Little baby, little baby
I love you. I love you.
You're my little sweet pea. You're my little sweet pea.
Yes you are. Yes you are.
(sung to the tune of Frere Jacques)
Here are the lyrics to the song I made up for Caleb not too long ago. He requests it every night with extra "mama loves you"...
Lullaby and goodnight, little lovebug baby.
Mama loves you, Mama loves you
and I'll see you when you wake up.
Sometimes we vary the songs that we sing, however the first one always makes it in.
I love that my children have a song especially made up for them and I hope they carry it on with their children!
Do you have a special song you sing to your kiddos or have you made one up especially for them?
