Life gets crazy sometimes and there is really nothing we can do about it but try to keep up. The saving grace for me is the time I get to spend with my littles. There is just no other feeling like that love you feel when it is just you and your kids, cuddling, chatting and giggling.
One of my favorite times is night time or as we call it “nite-nite time”. I get to cuddle with my little ones individually, read stories, sing songs and TICKLE! I love their giggles and just having that special bonding time with each of them. It fills my heart.
I have sang the same Spanish songs to both boys since they were born. My mother gave me a CD from Grupo Truhui when my first was born and it was like magic. It truly did help him calm down and fall asleep. Not only that, but it worked with my second, too! Because of that, I learned some of the songs and created a mashup version that I now sing to them every night.
The other night, my oldest was playing with the camera on my phone while we were getting ready for bed and decided to make a video of our songs. I wanted to share it with you because it means so much to me and I will cherish this video and our memories always. Sorry for the bad lighting (night time) no makeup look, goofy faces and the not-so-perfect singing from me (I do not claim to be a good singer). But M IS in my opinion, so concentrate on him. He just makes me smile! I hope to one day make a singing video with my little one as well. When I do, maybe I will share it, too!
Thank you for reading and may all your nights be filled with song!
