I don’t know about you, but I loved singing a special song to my children when they were in my womb.
For Hannah, I sang You are my Sunshine (by Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell) daily. Seconds after she was delivered, I sang that song to her and her eyes fixated on that voice and her body went quiet. She recognised that song. It’s since become her song.
You are my Sunshine
My only Sunshine
You make me Happy
When skies are grey
You never know dear,
How much I love you
Please don’t take my Sunshine away.
For Jasmine, I chose 1960s Roses are Red, My Love by Al Byron and Paul Evans.
Roses are Red, My love
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet my Love
But not as sweet as you.
When Jasmine was born, I created two canvases for each girl. They now hang in their rooms and it means so much to Hannah now that her song is up on the wall as a reminder of Mummy’s Tangible Love for Her.
Yes I am aware I left out the “My love” in the red and “days” should be “skies” in the yellow. It’s a kind of thing with me and lyrics. heh.
I love it. Hannah loves it. (Jasmine will too!)
