We have to clean up their sh*t, keep their toys, worry that they are eating enough, keep awake at night when they are scared, send them to school / enrichment classes / play dates etc.. but then, when they wake up with a smile, give us hugs, make silly faces to make us laugh, give us wet kisses, handcraft cards & stuff just for us.. all the tiring days seem to fade away and everything seems worthwhile.
It's really the little things that matter. Just over the weekend, Lil Pumpkin serenaded me with a song she made up herself. Maybe she was inspired by Valentine's Day, but she thought of the lyrics and tune herself and just started to play it for me. Was so happy and honestly, extremely proud that she did it.
Although some of her other songs are kinda random, I found this one was rather good for someone with no musical background.. especially when she used her ukelele like a tambourine and added in the claps and "hurrays" haha
It seems like she wanted to add on another verse but didn't think through what lyrics to sing. We'll work on that together and maybe she'll have an updated version soon :P
What do you love most about parenting?
Any good music schools to recommend?
