I have a love song for each of my children. When they are distressed and bawling their hearts out, I gather them in my arms and I sing to them “their” song. When they are sleepy but fighting to keep their eyes open, I sing them to sleep. When my heart is overflowing with love and a million “I love yous” is not enough, I sing. I sing my love, I sing my joy, I sing, I sing, and I sing!
Little T and I fell in love with this song during Quiet Time in our Kindermusik class when she was just a year old. We brought it home into our hearts and made up our own nighttime version: You Are My Moonlight. 🙂
Kindermusik has given our family the gift of expressing ourselves through music. At 12 months, Baby Boy lights up and signs “love” the moment I start singing “his” song. His breathing slows down and he falls peacefully to sleep.
What love song do you sing to your children?
