Can’t get This Song out of my Head

by

The snubnose keeps singing this popular kiddie song all day.

The lyrics are damn cute. It goes:

I love you, you love me,
We are a happy family,
With a great big hug and a kiss from me to you,
Won’t you say you love me too

I love you, you love me,
We are best friends as friends should be,
With a great big hug and a kiss from me to you,
Won’t you say you love me too

And, since she accompanies the song with the appropriate actions, I just can’t help feeling all squishy and emotional inside. In fact, all of us now sing this song, and I noticed that it averts a lot of potential stormy scenes. How can you possibly get mad that your child is not eating her food, when she is singing I love you? It works both ways too. When I sing it to her, she somehow starts to do things she would otherwise have avoided like the plague.

The power of words…

I am also noticing that since the snubnose has come into our lives, I have gone off all the cool hard rock music I used to listen to, and now have somehow started liking nursery rhymes and simple sweet songs.

Just another change that the snubnose has brought into our lives…
