Girly sings

At bedtime we sing lullabies with our kids. Lately, Girly has volunteered to sing to me after I sing to her. She makes up hilarious, random, disjointed songs.

Last night's installment went something like this:

I don't like you.
I love my mommy so very much.
She is so beautiful,
because she wears nice makeup.
It takes her an hour to wash
it off before bed.
I lo-ve elephants.

There were then some verses about lions and tigers...
Have I mentioned that she is obsessed with my makeup and skin care products? She keeps 'borrowing' things from my room and hiding them in her room. I caught her perusing her stash the other day, she had 3 of my deodorants! No wonder I can never find any.

Another night, her little ditty was a bit more... uh... bloodthirsty:

Sharky don't swim in the fish pool
Sharky don't swim in the fish pool
Sharky don't swim in the fish pool,
And Fishy stay out of the shark pool!

Her imagination is out of control! She tells stories all day long and sings crazy songs, I need to get a little voice recorder and capture some of the cuteness.


  1. Oh, how cute! You never really know what will come out of their mouths, eh??

  2. You do need to record some of it so you can play it back for her someday. And so you can hear it again someday too... : )

  3. That is awesome, Kristin! :) Thanks for the smile tonight!

  4. you wash your face before bed? I'm very impressed and really who wouldn't love elephants! lol
    she is something else. can't wait to get reacquainted with her this summer!

  5. Oh I'm so glad you wrote these down - treasured memories to be sure!

  6. oh my goodness, this is so cute! My parents made a cassette tape of the four of us (I was 6, my sister was 4, my brother was 3 and my other brother was 1) where they asked us is one of our favorite items today. All four of us adults listen to it all the time and fight over who gets to take it home. So keeping a record of these things is a wonderful thing to do.

  7. BTW, I told my husband about this post, about how precious it was. It brought back great memories for us!
