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
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…
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?

very early post ha… busy for tomorrow?
Was thinking to prepare for my trip back to Pinas, kaya nag post ako ngayon…
I used to make up a song and use my sons name and they love it!
How very sweet!! My kids loved it when I sang to them.
That's so cute!!! I wasn't that musically-gifted enough, so I'd just change pronouns into my sons' names. Funny when the syllable count didn't match, there'd be squeezing and stretching out names, LOL.
Please click here for mine.
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 🙁
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.

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!
