Let's Sing!

This is what i'm currently singing to Aidan:

1. Sing a Song of Six Pence... a pocket full of rhye...
2. Oooh The Grand Old Duke of York... he had ten thousand men...
3. Ba Ba Black Sheep... have you any wool...
4. Old King Cole... was a very old soul...
5. Incy Weency Spider.. climb up the water spout...

We hear classical music and i put our Baby Einstein series - Baby Bach, Baby Beethoven, Baby Mozart in the car.

This is what Hardy sings to him:

1. Di mana dia... anak kambing saya... anak kambing saya sedang duduk makan ooohh ooohh oooohhhh chan mali chan! oi! oi!! chan mali chan oi! oi!! chan mali chan.. ketipo-o-oongg payong...

2. Lompat sikatak lompat.. lompat la tinggi tinggi... cepat la Aidan cepat.. cepat lah nak tumbuh gigi...

3. Air pasang pagi.. surut pukul lima.. nyonya bangun pagi.. siram pokok bunga...

4. Sep Sep Sep... tom tom tom.. ola oli diberi nama.. saudara saudari cikibum cikibum... (please someone confirm to me this is a girl's song!)

We promise to learn some Dutch nursery rhymes ya Aidan?

Which is your favourite? Aidan loves them all!
Happy 11 Month Aidan!! we love you so sooo much!!

Hi Sweetie,
Rhymes and songs are important for kids aren't they? They learn languages, get a sense of togetherness and it's fun for all involved. Stories are great too. I usually make up something when I try to keep Adam or Sarah quiet for a bit. But when it comes to putting kids to bed, I believe I'm the Sultan of Slumberland!

How's this for a lullaby? My secret weapon:

Oh God, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz
My friends all drive Porches, I must make amends
Work hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends
Oh God, won't you buy me a mercedes benz...

It's part of a relatively obscure rock/pop song I use to get them drowsy and It works great for me. It's more likely that my singing voice really turns them off and they'd rather not listen! haha!

My love and hugs to all of you. Especially the two boy(ot)s.

ZaZa i was giggling reading your entry, i love singing enjet2 semut to Nora, cos thats the only song i know right till the end, yg lain semua half way aje = ) Glad that Aidan is bi or even tri - lingual. Nora is bilngual now as i only communicate with her in malay and Brecht in Dutch!

yat: mak dia nyanyi lagu omputih, chek kena la nyanyi lagu-lagu rakyat, though my playlist is somewhat limited la....

u.bob : I shall try that, maybe i'll translate it into german, it'll probably be more effective!

Great that you start Aidan with rhymes and songs.
unfortunately for us, Aemir seems uninterested with songs and dancing but kalau ada mic he's the first to go "Baa..Baa..."

We love Humpty Dumpty, Row row your boat, Baa Baa Black Sheep, Hey Diddle Diddle, Thomas & Friend punya theme song and Little Einsteins Theme song!heheheh

i always sing this song to hamizan: (1) tepuk amai2 belalang kupu2, tepuk hamizan pandai, malam upah susu.... (2) enjit2 semut, sapa sakit naik atas... (dia dah pandai cubit tangan dia & move cubit tu kat atas bila sebut "naik atas"), (3) twinkle twinkle little star... (4) air pasang dalam surut pukul 5... (5) sep sep sep, mee mee mee..(he knows to tepuk my hand!) (6) Ba Ba black sheep... (7) 1,2 buckle my shoe, 3,4 shut the door... & etc.(mostly lagu kita masa kecik2 dululah) tp ada yang half way je, i can't remember the lyric (sometimes i went to book shop semata2 cari buku nyanyian budak2 ni sebab nak hafal lyric - tp hafal je tak beli :)) but he loves this song "I love you" yg Barney nyanyi tu. yg ni mmg k.zue hafal hehehe..
