Mommy Moments- Songs from a Mom’s Heart

mommy moments

I missed writing here at Mommy Moments and decided to write before I leave back to the Phil. next week. Time is so fast that I will be leaving my hubby behind and continue to work. This week’s theme is “Songs from a Mom’s Heart” and I’ve got some songs.

When my first son was born, (14 years ago) he cried a lot and when I sing songs for him, he gradually fall asleep. I usually sing “Sa Ugoy ng Duyan” which is my favorite song when I joined the singing group known as Glee Club in our university. From then on, I decided to compose a song for my son in our own dialect. Here’s the lyric in Ilonggo…

Sleep, sleep my baby Em-em ( my son’s nickname)
Sleep, sleep my baby Em-em

Sleep na ang baby ko

Sleep na ang baby ko

After 8 years, AJ was born and Still remember the song and the tune. So I sang again for AJ, I just change the name of Em-em to AJ. And still he loved it. I also sang “Sing a Rainbow”, here’s the lyrics…

Red, and yellow, and pink, and green
Purple, and orange, and blue

I can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow

Sing a rainbow too.

AJ loves this song too, and until now when I sing it, he would sing with me. I love those days. Now they’re grown ups and I still long to hug and kiss them like when they were still a baby. Mommy Moments is indeed the right place to share Mommy’s experiences, trials and triumphs. Wanna join?

  1. My hubby is Ilonggo and he'd sing the native version to our son as a lullaby 7 years ago 🙂 Its a really nice song, actually.

    Have a safe trip back to the Philippines! Brace yourself for the heat, though 🙁

  2. Very nostalgic naman itong post mo. Parang nakikita kitang medyo namumula ang mata sa pagalaala nang mga nakaraan mong experiences sa pagpapatulog sa dalawa mong anak. Maganda talaga yung Rainbow Song. Paborito ko rin yun . Mabilis lumaki ang mga bata at halos hindi mo maramdaman ay malaki na pala sila at may sari sarili nang buhay. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

  3. How cute and special to have a song just for your children. It would be great to have a video clip of you singing it, so that we can hear!

    Blessings & Aloha!
    Oh did I tell you I have an award for you at my place. Even if you may be an award free blog or may have had this one passed on to you before…but I just wanted to let you know that I was thinking of you :o)

  4. me too, nagcocompose din ako ng mga songs (which is lagi ko naman nakakalimutan lol), di ko kasi mga memorize halos mga baby songs. Thanks for sharing =)

    happy trip pala next week… relax ka lang pag uwi mo pinas ha =)
