Singing at Bedtime

Perhaps a song about fairies that push dollys in toy pushchairs?

Both children have taken to singing recently. They tend to be made up songs around the tune of Twinkle Twinkle or Humpty Dumpty. I have to admit that one of the most rewarding bits of parenting for me at the moment is hearing their little voices happily singing away without a care in the world. I have a feeling that these songs capture moments of their days and thoughts which they would never reveal to me.

At the moment I’m really tempted to sit outside Fifi’s door with a portable sound recorder and capture some of the singing and chattering, it really is lovely. I wonder though, if this is too much of a personal intrusion. Would she appreciate these recordings when she is older or would she think I was mad/ intruding upon her innocent privacy?

For the moment I will just sit and enjoy the moment, there’s not enough of that sometimes and too much video recording and photography…
