Song or nursery rhyme to sing with/to your children?
BG favourite is “She’ll be coming round the mountain”!!!
I have no idea why on that fateful day when she was crying and wouldn’t stop why I started to sing that song ! It wasn’t a favourite of mine as a child, it wasn’t one we sung a lot , I didn’t even realise I knew all the words!!
However I started singing it and she stopped crying and started smiling!!
This song is now used in many situations, to calm baby down, it stops her crying, stops her screaming, makes her giggles it evens sends her to sleep!!
We of course sing other songs but we always come to back to “She’ll be coming round the mountain”
Sometimes she needs an extra long version so me and OH make up verses, such as
“Oh we’ll all go to the park when she comes”
“We’ll all eat butternut squash when she comes”
Anyway I was wondering what songs do you like the best?
What works for you?
