Recently I had been thinking about the lullabies I sing to Ichigo, and then I stumbled upon a beautifully written post on The lost art of lullaby by Dreaming Aloud. When Ichigo was a newborn and I struggled to put her to sleep at night, I would walk and pat her back and sing and sing... and sing.

I remember my mother singing to me as a child, and many of the songs that she sang are the same ones I sing to Ichigo today. I hope that one day Ichigo will sing these songs to her own children.

Some of my favorite lullabies are Michael Row your Boat Ashore, You Are My Sunshine, Hush Little Baby, I love you Ichigo, Sea of Love, Jesus Loves Me, and Brahm's Lullaby.
Do you sing lullabies to your children? What are your favorites?

  1. I do sing lullabies to Jac, but they are all made up songs ;-)

    Just wanted to stop by to say that I have been thinking of you today as I watch the news coverage of Japan. I'm guessing you still have loved ones there, and I'm hoping they are all safe and sound.
