Things New Parents Should Know #16 - Singing [Oct. 7th, 2008|10:56 pm]
[mood |amusedamused]

Even if you can't sing, your child will like it if you hold them and sing to them. There's something about the rhythm and cadence of a voice in song that they respond to.

And you will find that you enjoy it too.

If you wish to spend the time, there are many, many beautiful lullabies from all over the world you could learn to sing your child into the arms of Morpheus. But honestly, you can sing pretty much anything.

My main lullaby so far has been Sixteen Tons, but I also like to sing him the Money Song, Highway to Hell, and The Time Warp.

Our budgies like it when I sing , they don't like dancing though and they are picky about some of the music I play .

I've noticed that kids when they get to about six they hate hearing an adult sing and when they are ten they hate it even more (apparently singing is torture to them but its fine if they sing ), kids are way weird .

Somebody should take the offensive judges in Abusive Idol and hold their heads down in raw sewerage for a while, for their crimes. Everyone who can make noise can sing. It's part of the being a Homo sapien toolkit, and the mongrels who've convinced us that we can't deserve no mercy.

I sang "The Long Black Veil" to my daughter, and "The Banana Boat Song" to the boy. THEN I find out they're both deaf. All that singing, and all they got was the vibration.

i don't really remember singing to any of my kids until they were older - it really didn't occur to me (that includes nursery rhymes and lullabies). But A used to dance them to sleep to a Michelle Shocked cd.
