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?
