  • I try but they tell me to stop! LOL
    I just sing along with the radio or TV
    some little nursery rhyme songs, like Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (but I sing it in Latin), Frère Jacques, and any other song I might remember the words to at the time

  • I sing all the time - Sesame Street all time favorites are common, nursery rhymes, or made up songs about what I want them to do at the time (we need to put on our socks and shoes, socks and shoes, socks and shoes, la la la). All of my kids love music, as I do, and I found putting things in song is a good way of getting them to listen because they want to sing along.
    I also sing James Taylor and the Eagles - favorites of mine!

  • My 20 month old likes my singing, but my 4 and 5 year olds tell me not to lol. I sing Baby Mine, You Are My Sunshine, and songs from the Curious George move. Sometimes me singing is the only thing that my baby will go to sleep to. At some point he'll join his brothers and prefer youtube, but right now I'm still special. :-)

  • My 2 year old tells me to stop. She loved it at one, though. Now she wants to hear the cd play, not me. :( But we do twinkle twinkle little star, ABCs, row row row your boat, and those type songs. SHe does love the handwashing one I sing. Wash wash wash your hands, wash them til they shine. washy, washy, washy, washy, wash these hands of mine.

  • Yes, I sing Jesus love me, and they sing it on their own at times, during Christmas, they would sing jingle bells and other christmas songs.

  • I sing all the time. I make up things, sing kids songs, commercial songs, anything I can. When I had my son I didn't know any kids songs so I would sing the Free Credit Report Dot Com song to him. Any time it came on the tv it would calm him down too.

  • I was told once by one of my daycare kids that I sing all the time. It happened because she sang her answer to my question back to me and I laughed and she said you do it all the time. Ok so she got me, I do sing all the time about EVERYTHING lol Cool thing is that my kids have picked up on it and are really good at making their own songs as well as knowing the regular songs
