Things New Parents Should Know #16 - Singing

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.
