Wonderful tunes
A special song for her kids, this mom loves singing to her kids.
For some reason, I started singing: "Mama's little baby loves shortnin', shortnin', Mama's little baby loves shortnin' bread" in the shower, whilst I was pregnant with my first born, Sebastian. He is almost 4 years old now and it amazes me how he only wants me to sing that song to him, before he goes to sleep.
I'm not sure where I got that song from, probably some old American movie and it's the most boring song on the planet - I just sing that one line, over and over but Sebastian doesn't care ... it's the song he wants to hear before he falls asleep. I'm sure it's got to do with him hearing me sing it when he was still in my belly.
