Happy Mother's Day!

Sunday is Mother's day. This is a great time to talk to your children about families. I like to emphasize that all families are different and that is what makes your family special.

This week we sang about all the members of our families... including the furry ones. Then we sang about our Moms.

Who is in Your Family?
(Tune: Little Red Wagon)

A mommy is a person in a family.
A mommy is a person in a family.
A mommy is a person in a family.
Who is in your family?

We sing this song about any person in a family, but when we are singing about furry members of our families we change the words slightly.

A dog is a member of a family.
A dog is a member of a family.
A dog is a member of a family.
Who is in your family?

Happy Mother's Day
(Tune: Happy Birthday)

Happy Mother's day to you!
Happy Mother's day to you!
You're my mommy and I love you.
Happy Mother's day to you!

 

M-O-M-M-Y
(Tune: Bingo)

I love her and she loves me.
Mommy is her name.
M-O-M-M-Y
M-O-M-M-Y
M-O-M-M-Y
Mommy is her name.

I  like these two songs because they are very simple and to a tune all your kids know. My hope is to give your kids a song to sing to their moms on Sunday to tell them how much they love them! It is sweet to hear your kids say "I love you," but it is even sweeter to hear them sing it.

That's a picture of my mom and me.  She taught me a lot of about how to work with and respect  children. She is a great mom and grandma! (She doesn't look like a grandma at all... does she?)

 

Happy Mother's day to all the mothers! You are all important parts of our families and loved very much.

 

Happy Singing!
