Song From A Mom's Heart

Music has been an essential part of Samantha's life. From her conception until today, I see to it that she has a daily dose of music and songs to sing.

When I was still pregnant with her, I would usually listen to Hillsong. It's a Christian band that plays great Christian music. I especially love to sing None But Jesus especially when my paranoia strikes me and my wild imagination will lead me to think of Sam having 12 fingers or worse, and I am comforted.

When Samantha was born, I still play these songs to her along with my favorite Jesuit Hymns. I also exposed her to nursery songs and lullabies. She could never sleep without a hele. Me and her Daddy became instant singers at home just to send her to Lalaland... We even had a duyan or hammock assembled so that she can better sleep. I sing to her Lullaby, And Goodnight but I never really got around to memorizing it so I would just use my own words and hum it to her. There's also a song that I composed and eventually sing to her. Part of the lyrics goes something like this:

Little Sam, we love you so... little Sam, just so you know.
Little Sam, soon you'll grow... little Sam, be a good girl though.

I just love to reminisce all those sleepless nights.

Now that she is bigger, she can hum a few lines from the songs that she hears especially from her favorite cartoons. She can also sing Ave Maria with so much gusto! I just know that when my little girl learns to really speak, she will love singing all the wonderful Christian songs for kids that I have prepared for her.

Singing to your children is a good way to bond and spend quality time with them.

So how about you Mommy? What is the song that your heart sings?
