Baby SOH has just turned 5!!
She had spent the day at OOSH, and it was an aweful wet and cold afternoon. When driving home, I said “Rain, rain go away come again another day”
And Baby SOH said, “Little … wants to play”
Just like we used to. We kept singing it on the way home, and then we added “Little Daddy wants to play” and then “Big Daddy wants to play”.
We know this game well. Then we went inside, and and Baby SOH said she wanted to go to bed and listen to lullabies. Hooray!! I thought, she still likes those.
First of all, she wanted lots of stories. Then I sang “Sleep, children, sleep.
Your father tends the sheep, Your mother shakes the dreamland tree, And down come all your dreams for thee. Sleep, children, sleep.”
A version of a German Lullabye.
It’s so lovely to still share these warm moments on a cold, windy and wet day!!
