knees and toes.
Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes.
Eyes and ears and mouth and nose.
Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes."
Is what you will hear the Skocelai singing at the top of their lungs, over and over again these days. For some random reason, this is Emory's favorite song as of late. It all started on the way home from Christmas at my folks. About the last hour of the trip, Emory, who was barely hanging on anyway, really began to fall apart. And she can really hit that high note at a decible that most toddlers find effortless and opera soloists spend years training for. So, in a panic, since the car was so full there was no way I could sit beside her and play, I pulled the headrest off my seat (not by a feat of strength, it is made to be removed in just such occasions) and proceeded to sing this song to Emory for the first time ever. She loved it, and we spent the last hour singing this song ALL THE WAY HOME. Since then, any time I start singing any song she will pat her head with both of her hands and say "head, head?" If I don't stop singing whatever song I was singing and sing hers, she continues to ask until I sing it. It's really cute. We even sing it instead of the usual lullaby before bed. What songs did your toddlers love?
