It boggles my mind that I am such a fan of music but can't for the life of me think of many songs to sing to my baby. I know the lyrics to hundreds of rock songs, but when I try to sing to her, my mind draws a complete blank.
So now we're stuck with the following limited repertoire:
The Little Drummer Boy
Do You Hear What I Hear?
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
The Sun is a Mass of Incandescent Gas (she especially seems to like this one)
You Are My Sunshine (I only know one verse of this so it's too short)
Add to the fact that I am NOT a good singer, and it's pretty much a disaster. I guess I need to learn some more songs. I don't even care if the lyrics are "kid-friendly" - I suspect we have plenty of time to worry about that up ahead. I just would like to remember the lyrics to a song without having it playing at the same time. Maybe I need some of those karaoke backing tracks or something.
Or we could just wait until she can sing her own songs. She's well on her way:
