Songs

it's a great thing that malachi doesn't mind the fact that i don't sing all that well (or at least he hasn't commented on my poor singing abilities yet) cause he seems to be in this stage where he wants me to sing with him. He sings a word here and there.
big ones these days...

if you're happy and you know it - he can do the clapping, stomping and shouting hooray parts but also interjects the word "face" at the appropriate times (with a slight pause from me)

the wheels on the bus - he likes the 'sh' part best, 'the parents on the bus say sh, sh, sh..."

row, row, row your boat - for malachi it sounds like "row, row, row...boat......eam..., m?&%#, m?&%#, m?&%#, m?&%# (he's not cussing i just can't figure out what exactly he is saying while i sing merrily...that looks funny but i spelled it correct, i looked it up on wikipedia :)

i really need to build up the repertoire (yes, i looked up the spelling on that one too) of songs.
so here is an opportunity for people to participate with my, i mean our family blog. Any suggestions for other songs to sing with kiddos. and by the way anyone should be able to post a comment since i changed to setting for that.

i will anxiously wait for the comments to come pouring in ;)

so glad someone else has similar song experiences with thier little one that i do. isn't it great that our kids love that we sing not how we sing! so some other songs we like: "you are my sunshine," "tinkle, tinkle little star," "hallelujah," "God is so good," and anything from raffi

There are hundreds of songs on www.smart-central.com and you can hear how they sound too. The lyrics are accompanied by somewhat obnoxious organ music, but you'll not be lacking for ideas. At one time, Rhea and Daddy used to sit at the computer and just sing songs together from this site as part of her bedtime routine. She would ask him to "sing to me from the computer."
