    She shared her favorite song is Somewhere over the Rainbow. And based on her post, I can see why, but it got me to wondering what everyone elses favorite song is.

    Mine is Louis Armstrong What a Wonderful World. For some reason whenever I am feeling down, I hear that song and I immediately think of all my blessings. It lifts me up immediately.:goodvibes

    AT LAST by Etta James

    I walked down the aisle to this song.


    Every time I hear this song, I still tear up and can feel that exact way i was feeling when the first words of the song began & I started the walk towards the most wonderful man in the world.

    2 songs are my favorites, At Last by Etta James and Mr. Mom by Lonestar. One is sweet and gentle and kind, and the other is funny, lighthearted and sooo true. LOL

    In reference to PO3's song, when DD is screaming I hum You are My Sunshine and she settles right down, DS11 it was Pride and Joy by Stevie Ray Vaughn, the other 2 didn't really have anything. We have a Celtic CD they all love but I don't remember singing anything to DS5 and 6.

    Lonestar lyrics

    Lost my job, came home mad
    Got a hug and kiss and that's too bad
    She said I can go to work until you find another job
    I thought I like the sound of that
    Watch TV and take long naps
    Go from a hand working dad to being Mr. Mom

    Well
    Pampers melt in a Maytag dryer
    Crayons go up one drawer higher
    Rewind Barney for the fifteenth time
    Breakfast, six naps at nine
    There's bubble gum in the baby's hair
    Sweet potatoes in my lazy chair
    Been crazy all day long and it's only Monday
    Mr. Mom

    Football, soccer and ballet
    Squeeze in Scouts and PTA
    And there's that shopping list she left
    That's seven pages long
    How much smoke can one stove make
    The kids won't eat my charcoal cake
    It's more than any maid can take
    Being Mr. Mom

    Well
    Pampers melt in a Maytag dryer
    Crayons go up one drawer higher
    Rewind Barney for the sixteenth time
    Breakfast, six naps at nine
    There's bubble gum in the baby's hair
    Sweet potatoes in my lazy chair
    Been crazy all day long and it's only Monday
    Mr.Mom

    Before I fall in bed tonight
    If the dog didn't eat the classifieds
    I'm gonna look just one more time

    'Cause
    Pampers melt in a Maytag dryer
    Crayons go up one drawer higher
    Rewind Barney for the eighteenth time
    Breakfast, six naps at nine
    There's bubble gum in the baby's hair
    Sweet potatoes in my lazy chair
    Been crazy all day long
    Oh been crazy all day long and it's only Monday
    Mr.Mom

    Balancin' checkbooks, juggling bills
    Thought there was nothing to it
    Baby, now I know how you feel
    What I don't know is how you do it

    baby, you're my hero

    do you guys know this one for the kiddos??

    "Let Them Be Little" by Lonestar

    I can remember when you fit in the palm of my hand
    Felt so good in it, no bigger than a minute
    How it amazes me, you're changing with every blink
    Faster than a flower blooms they grow up all too soon

    So let them be little 'cause they're only that way for a while
    Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day
    Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle
    Oh just let them be little

    I've never felt so much in one little tender touch
    I live for those kisses, prayers and your wishes
    Now that you're teaching me things only a child can see
    Every night while we're on our knees all I ask is please

    Let them be little 'cause they're only that way for a while
    Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day
    Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle
    Oh just let them be little

    So innocent, a precious soul, you turn around
    It's time to let them go

    So let them be little 'cause they're only that way for a while
    Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day
    Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle
    Oh just let them be little

    Let them be little

    Lone Star is awesome.. but the song that DH and I picked when we were first dating again was..
    Alysson Krauss... You Say it best.. When you say Nothing at all..

    Actually, DH in the past 3 months has been sending me via email the song of the week... He sends the artist and the lyrics... so, I'm collecting them and for Christmas I'm going to give him a CD w/ all those songs on it..
    The song I love is by Big and Rich... Lost In This Moment With You. .When we renew our vows I want to have this song play...
    "Lost In This Moment"

    I see your momma and the candles
    and the tears and roses
    I see your daddy walk his daughter down the aisle
    I feel my knees start to tremble as I tell the preacher
    Don't she look beautiful tonight

    All the wonderful words in my head I've been thinkin'
    You know I wanna say them all just right
    I lift your veil and angels start singin'
    Such a heavenly sight

    [Chorus:]
    Lost in this moment with you
    I am completely consumed
    My feelings so absolute
    there's no doubt
    Sealing our love with a kiss
    Waiting my whole life for this
    Watching all my dreams come true
    Lost in this moment with you

    I smell the jasmine floatin' in the air like a love song
    Watch my words draw sweet tears from your eyes
    We bow our heads while the preacher talks to Jesus
    Please bless this brand new life

    [Chorus x2]


    Hey BAMB, You are My Sunshine is what I use to sing to DD... She heard someone sing that the other day and said.. I haven't heard that in a while.. So,when I woke her up on the first day of school.. I sung it to her...
    DS11 his favorite song was one I made up about my Booga-Boo...I think each day I would have a new version!
    DS6 loved for me to sing.. The ROSE...

    You are my Sunshine was the song my Mom and I used to sing together when I was little. I changed the words to "You are my mommy, my only mommy..." Even today it can still make me cry.

    Another great song is Alan Jackson's "Remember When".


    "Remember When"

    Remember when I was young and so were you
    and time stood still and love was all we knew
    You were the first, so was I
    We made love and then you cried
    Remember when

    Remember when we vowed the vows
    and walked the walk
    Gave our hearts, made the start, it was hard
    We lived and learned, life threw curves
    There was joy, there was hurt
    Remember when

    Remember when old ones died and new were born
    And life was changed, disassembled, rearranged
    We came together, fell apart
    And broke each other's hearts
    Remember when

    Remember when the sound of little feet
    was the music
    We danced to week to week
    Brought back the love, we found trust
    Vowed we'd never give it up
    Remember when

    Remember when thirty seemed so old
    Now lookn' back it's just a steppin' stone
    To where we are,
    Where we've been
    Said we'd do it all again
    Remember when
    Remember when we said when we turned gray
    When the children grow up and move away
    We won't be sad, we'll be glad
    For all the life we've had
    And we'll remember when

    DD doesn't like the words so I am only allowed to hum, good thing too because I can't sing for, well you know what. She is so cute too, if she wants me to keep humming she'll start to hum if I stop. with her buddy (pacifier) in her mouth and rubbing her nose with the corner of her lovey (blanket).

    I was going to say, how is your singing if she only let's you hum, but I guess Ms. Princess :bride: has given her critique! ;) :rotfl2:

    When my DD was little, I would sing the Coochie Face song from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

    You're my little coochie face,
    and you're my teddy bear.

    Together we're a coochie woochie pair.


    Hey, when a song soothes a little one, we parents will sing it any where, any time, numerous times.:rolleyes1
