Do you ever get asked so many questions by your wild ones in one day, over and over and over, until you just start singing all of your replys to try and throw them off? Hoping maybe they will laugh or at least pause and give you just a moment of peace? I do this a lot. It's actually a trick I learned from my brother. He used to do it when we were growing up. Probably for the same reasons:)
Anyway, I was using this tactic on my crazies the other day, and somehow a little love song was born out of it. Funny how that happened, as I don't think thats the feeling I had at the time. Positve projecting maybe? Oh well, the song has endured. The kids love it and beg me to sing it all the time and it's even turned into our goodnight ritual that I must sing and dance to before bed. Yes, I said dance. They like an event, an entire performance with opera voices and classical ballroom. It's really something to see. The words go like this…
I'll love you in the mornings and in the afternoons.
I'll love you in the evenings,
and all throughout the moons.
I'll love you to the heavens, to the bottom
of the sea
and I will keep on loving you
for all eternity.
Sweet right? Anyone want to help come up with some new verses? They are really wanting a longer show:)
