My toddler Max is a funny little fellow. Lately he walks around all day humming songs out loud. I guess he is actually singing, but to us it sounds like humming because he doesn’t actually use real words. He just loves — LOVES — songs. So, if he is feeling a bit grouchy, or if you are changing his diaper and he is not impressed about having to lay still, all you need to do is start singing a song. Immediately, he is captivated.
So last night, while he was in the bath, I was folding up the clean towels (gawd, how domestic does that sound??) and this song just came to me. I started singing it out loud to him and I haven’t been able to stop since!
If you’re of my vintage, I thought you might enjoy this little walk down memory lane too.
So, just sing! Sing a song! (It will help you get through “hump day” – promise!)
