I’m not a particularly good singer – but I have been known to belt out in singing while driving in the car or while showering. Typically, they’re the latest pop songs or R&B ballads.
Now that I’m a mom? It’s a little bit different.
I’ve turned to singing to help Malia get used to my voice and to keep her senses engaged when she’s awake. And I found myself thinking of my favorite nursery songs. So far, she LOVES “You Are My Sunshine”. This helps her to calm down and go to sleep.
“ABC” is great for getting her arms and legs moving. She does the cycling motion with each letter and now flails her arms along with her legs.
Lolo and Lola have a variety of Filipino songs that gets her laughing (and on the way to being bilingual! LOL)
