I have theme songs for my children.
Naomi’s goes like this: (set to the “My Little Pony Tales” theme song)
My Little Nomie, my little Nomie. My little Nomie girl!
Kingo’s goes like this: (set to “Hava Nagila”—allegro or presto!)*
Bubba, bubba ba Kingo, bubba ba Kingo, bubba ba Kingo Kat!
(2) Bubba, bubba ba Kingo, bubba ba Kingo, bubba ba Kingo Kingo Kat!
*Don’t ask me why I had this melody in my head because I have no idea how it got there, but I must have heard it in a movie, TV show, or commercial.
FYI, if you ever have some tune in your head and you have no idea what it’s called, you can play it on a virtual piano on Musipedia. It's genius! I couldn't believe it figured out the song...that I played on my smart phone, notwithstanding my weak piano skills.
I’m currently working on a ditty that involves both of my children in the same song. It’s a work in progress but goes a little something like this: (set to “My Buddy and Kid Sister”)
My kitty, my kitty, wherever I go, Kingggg-goes. My kitty, my kitty.
My Kingo and me.
(2) Kid Nomie, kid Nomie. Wherever I go, she’s gonna go.
Kid Nomie, kid Nomie. Naomi and me!
I never had one of these dolls, by the way, did you?
Yup, my brain is an endless repository of jingles, theme songs, and random music that I can't name.
By the way, does anyone else remember "David the Gnome." I loved this show, but Hylan is not familiar with it. Someone else out there must have watched it too!
Good ole reliable Swift!
I think having a kid has brought out my inner kid out and suddenly I'm making up songs for any and everything we do during the course of a day. That, or the tiredness just makes me plum loopy.
