As I sometimes do when I'm looking for a new parenting perspective, I hopped over to Nathalie's blog archives (Thanks Nathalie!). She mentioned Casper Babypants and I went hunting. Colin's current nighttime lullaby is Bright Bug. It's hard to resist a song that's main refrain is I love you. And Colin is my bright bug. Perfect fit.
I was a little disappointed to realize I knew exactly one bath time song and it wasn't very long (Rubber Ducky from Sesame Street). Then I found "Too Dirty to Love" by Capser Babypants!
I sing to Colin all of the time. He loves it. So I started exploring some of the other Babypants songs and found lots of them I like.
We have lots of favorites now. Funny Bone, I found you, Baby Getting up, Run baby run, Butterfly driving a truck... We want to buy
Gavin likes to tell me he doesn't like a song I sing to Colin, then wait until he knows the lyrics and steal it... so now he's singing him babypants songs all day, too! Then Grandma joined the fun. I'm sure by the end of her visit, Buma will be singing Babypants with us too!
