Mommy Monday: Bedtime SongsNovember 17, 2014
Stay Awake, from the movie Mary Poppins, was always a favorite of mine. Perhaps it's the beautiful voice of Julie Andrews, but I just feel something wonderful when I hear that song.
As children, my mother used to sing to us a lot. I grew up in a very musical family. Through voice or instrument, there was always some sort of song running through my mind. So naturally singing to Penelope as we go about our nightly routine is a must.
I'm clearly no Julie Andrews, but I think just listening to the sound of my voice and looking into my eyes, is all that matters. Our connection grows stronger each and every day and I couldn't be happier with my life as a mother. It's truly the most amazing ride.
Music is something important to me, and it's important that my daughter grow up with it. She already "dances" when certain toys play music, something she learned to do completely on her own. In what ways is music special to you?
Though some of you haven't ventured into the parenthood chapter of your life yet, I'm still curious to know about your own experiences with lullabys. What were your favorites? Who sang them to you?
If you do have children, what lullabys do you sing them?
"For in dreams we enter a world that is entirely our own. Let them swim in the deepest ocean or glide over the highest cloud."
Have a Happy Monday!
