I have always been lyrically challenged so when my daughter was a baby and I'd sing to her, I'd have to make up the words to the song because I did not know the lyrics. There was one song "Hush Little Baby" that I sang to her using most of my own made up words.
When Matthew, my grandson, was born, I continued singing the same song to him adding the very last verse just for him. This song states everything (as in the original song) that Nammy is gonna buy for her dear boy. Singing it to Brandi for many years, she never and I mean never asked me for any of the things that I was singing about, but Matthew a few weeks ago innocently asked "Nammy, when are you going to buy me all those things in that song?" At this point, after having read the original song, I was sincerely glad that I never knew the words because I would not have been able to do what I did for Matthew this past weekend for his 5th birthday. I will show you with pictures:
I had to give the diamond ring to his mom because boys don't wear diamond rings plus she deserved some of the gifts after all the years I sang it to her!
Ummm...boys don't wear dresses either so guess who got the dress?
Brought him to a Safari (pics follow)
(I didn't get a pic of this but it was a heart with the words "All Nammy's Love" written on it along with a picture of me hugging him)
The Safari Pics:
This was an 11 month old Kangaroo named Jack that was in a play pen with a diaper on. They were able to hold it. Talk about excited!
My own little Daniel Cook!
What a birthday Nammy!!
