Global Warming Nursery Rhymes

It’s getting ridiculous, everywhere I go I keep bumping into people I went to school with and they invariably, have had babies this year. Strange how fate leads people to do the same things at roughly the same age! I’m beginning to get the urge to go out wearing make-up, best new clothes and so forth, just in case.

Still,I suppose its giving them that opportunity to feel good about themselves and perhaps cheering their day.

My baby loved it; he had a chance to prod other babies and was completely bemused by the unbelievably enthusiastic and energetic singing, which lasted for about an hour. I hope he doesn’t want me to recreate this at home. I might be able to manage songs from Evita, The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins or Chitty, but I’m not sure I can remember all 6 verses of row row row your boat.

So watch this space for my latest efforts. Lets see here’s a first attempt:

I&#39;ve been going recently as she&#39;s not been very well and, after four sessions, am even getting brave enough to join in some of the songs.<br><br>;-)<br>Robin<br>(
