In honor of Mother’s Day this weekend, I thought it would be fun to do a post on songs and nursery rhymes that talk about the special relationship between mother and child. I have put together a list of nursery rhymes and songs to celebrate mom.
Rhymes are a great way to bond with your baby. Here are some nursery rhyme ideas to try:
Nursery rhymes for Mother’s Day
- Pat a cake
- Round and Round the Garden
- 5 Little Monkeys
- Come to the Window, My baby and me
Most of the songs I could find, though, were lullabies. I wonder if that has anything to do with lack of sleep… I love lullabies. I think picking a special lullaby for your little one is very important. You can check out my post on how to choose a lullaby here, if you are looking for some ideas.
Here are a few songs you can enjoy singing with your baby:
- Hush, Little Baby
- All Through the Night
- You are My Sunshine
- Lullaby and Goodnight
Some lullabies are too hard for me to sing without crying, especially being pregnant. As I have been listening to my music birth playlist this week, I have had to keep skipping through Celine Dion’s The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face. It’s just too much for me to take. I am still in the process of choosing a lullaby for baby #2.
I think the main thing, though, is to make a point of singing with your children, even if you feel you are no good. Remember that your voice is very comforting to them, as it is the first voice they recognize after birth. That is an incredible priveledge!
How are you celebrating mom this week? I’d love to hear about special songs/games you do with your little ones!
