New and Improved Nursery Rhymes

I thought just for fun I would share this, laugh if you want but plenty of moms have told me they do the exact same thing with their kids. If you have ever had to sing a lullaby over and over again because your child cannot or will not calm down/go to sleep without that one particular song being sung on repeat you will understand what I mean when I say that I GET BORED WITH REPETITIVE NURSERY RHYMES!! I have never been one for nursery rhymes in the first place, but I get so bored singing “Itsy Bitsy Spider” and “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” over and over again. (Even though I know I will keep doing it until I am blue in the face because he is my little man.) This month Liam is going through a phase where he refuses to fall asleep in the car unless I start singing one of these two songs to him but if I stop, even for a minute, he will start crying until I start up again until he is finally asleep. So I have had to entertain myself by mixing it up a little with my own versions of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and occasionally rapping the Itsy Bitsy Spider. (Yeah that’s right I said rapping and no there will be no demonstrations.) So I thought for fun I would share my version of them both. Enjoy!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Mars
How I wonder how far you are,
Up above the earth so high
Like a lightening bug in the sky,
Twinkle Twinkle Little Mars
How far to Jupiter from where you are?

Itsy Bitsy Spider went to the farmer’s house
Down came the snow and trapped her like a mouse
Out came the sun and dried up all the snow and
The Itsy Bitsy Spider had lots of places to go.
