My Singer

Every night as part of bedtime routine I slather Sammy with lotion and put him in his jammies. The whole time I do this I sing to him.

The same songs every night.

I start with Goodnight my someone from the Music Man
Then I sing I will by the Beatles
Then it's either Love is Spoken Here or Child's Prayer from our church's children's hymnal
And I round it out with Abide with of my favorite religious hymns

It's a pretty well rounded playlist since my mom taught me to love musicals, my dad endowed me with a working knowledge of 95% of the Beatles songbook and they both taught me to love my Savior. Lessons I would love to pass down to my son.

The best part is that Sammy sings along with me. It is amazing.

At first I didn't want to give him too much credit...he's just 4 months old and babies make sing song sounds all the time. I didn't want to be THAT mom who is always giving her kids more credit than they really deserve.

But, after much incredulity I am ready to admit. He is definitely singing along with me.

It's my favorite part of the day.

I sang to all my kids. It's the only time in my life that I felt confident about and audience for my abilities. I bet you dance together too. Have fun! If you were closer, I'd love to sing to Sammy. My favorites: "From This Valley" and "The Liquor Was Spilled."

Oh, that is so sweet. Ella now sings along with me every night and it makes me die of the cuteness.
