Zip-a-dee-doo-dah

On my way to pick up Greg from work, Adrianna started fussing. Since I was driving, I couldn’t easily calm her down since her carseat is located in the back seat. So I started singing. I began with Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, as she usually enjoys when I sing that to her. Sure enough, as soon as I started singing it to her, she quieted down. So I sang different songs to her the rest of the way.

One thing about becoming a new parent is that you all of a sudden realize that you need to learn (or relearn) a slew of songs for children. I have been racking my brain for all those childhood songs that I learned so that I can sing them to Adrianna. Other than Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, there are a few others that she seems to like. One of them is a song I like to call Clean and Dry. Here are the lyrics, sung to the tune of Deep and Wide.

Clean and Dry.
Clean and Dry, Adrianna’s diaper’s clean and dry.
Clean and Dry.
Clean and Dry, Adrianna’s diaper’s clean and dry!

One of my favorite things to do is insert her name into songs whenever possible.

Adrianna, she is my sunshine.
She makes me happy, when skies are grey.
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you.
Please don’t take my sunshine away.

Well, you get the drift.
