(to the tune of “Hush, little baby”)
Speak little child, and make lots of sounds
And keep growing in leaps and bounds
We’ll be busy as bumblebees
We’ll catch the waves that crash on the seas
We’ll go for strolls and walks in the park
We’ll draw lots of sidewalk art
We’ll run through sprinklers on days when it’s hot
We’ll sing songs and laugh a lot
We’ll climb a mountain to touch the sky
We’ll bake you a blueberry pie
I’d give you the stars above
For you are my one true love.
These days Minnow would rather have a story at bedtime than a lullaby, but this lullaby was sung multiple times daily from age 6 weeks to about 1.5 years. The original words were simply too materialistic for my taste, but the tune was simple and appealing. And I’m happy to report that we’ve already done many of the things in the song.
I love you, Minnow.
