Any Veggie Tales fans out there? Silly Songs with Larry? No...? Ok then. Before having a baby you would not have caught me dead singing. I'm far too self-conscious about my voice. But then I had a baby and he cried sometimes and I quickly realized that singing soothed him and soothed him fast. SO, bring on the tunes! I sing to Sweets alot, and most of my little ditties are either something I made up or a take on a familiar song that I've revamped. My own creations would make no sense to you though, so here are some of our "pop" favorites:
"If You Like it Then You Shoulda Put a Bib on It"
(to the tune of Beyonce's "Single Ladies/Put a Ring on It")
(to the tune of the Village People's "Macho Man")
(to the tune of Fergie's "My Humps" - I know! I'm not neccessarily proud of this one, and it always makes me think of Ross and Rachel on Friends, singing "Baby Got Back" to their baby girl)
"Sweetie and the Jets"
(to the tune of Elton John's "Bennie and the Jets")
"Stinky Bottom Boy"
(to the tune of Queen's "Fat Bottomed Girls." Please don't think I'm a bad parent.)
(to the tune of Rick James' "Superfreak")
And while we're at it, let's talk about the nicknames Sweets' has accumulated in his first year of life. Currently, he goes by:
Sweetie Pea (obviously)
Sweetie Peetie Pumpkin Pie
Baybooski (Polish for Bayboo ;)
Bayboosini (Italian for Bayboo ;)
Baybooska (Russian for Bayboo ;)
Blueberry Bottom Boy
Stinky Bottom Boy
Peanut Butter Bean Pie (just kidding. 'Cause that would be out of control. 'Cause the sheer volume of nicknames listed above is totally normal. Right.)
