When Alyssa was still a baby, I often play the song “Butterfly Kisses” and it serves as her lullaby… I love it because I want my daughter to be so close to her Dad. As a breatsfeeding mom, I believe that everyday during those times, I am having that strong bond with my daughter, so with the song that she’s hearing while she’s growing up, it will give her a message that Dad loves her just the same.
And I was right, because as she grows up, she memorizes the song by heart and calls that song “Daddy Song”. It was just a very sweet and touching song for a father and daughter, specially the first part which was about childhood. It has now become more popular and seems to be a common song for weddings.
For me, personally, I love the song “If I Could” and I first heard it while browsing Sharon Cuneta’s videos (Oh Yes! I’m one heck of a Sharonian! LOL) in YouTube. She sang it to KC way way back. The song was sung by Celine Dion and Barbara Streisand too, though I was deeply touched with Sharon’s version and my tears even fell as I watch and listen.
I haven’t tried playing it yet to Alyssa, but because I remembered it again, I will add it in our iPod now. So from now on, she’ll have both “Daddy Song” and “Mommy Song”. Alyssa can’t sleep without music, so this is a good addition to her playlist.
And as a daughter, the song I want to sing to my parents when I’m given the chance is the song, “Do I Make You Proud”, which this time was sung by KC to Sharon. And I would want to know their answer.
I’m sure you’ve got favorite songs you dedicate to your kids too. Come and join us in Mommy Moments hosted by Mommy Chris.
