Song Titles

Since Ace began sleeping in his own bed, we have been singing songs to him as part of his bedtime routine... sometimes traditional children's songs. Other times not. With each of them though Ace comes up with his own title and we the parents are forced to decipher the code and wrack our brains to figure out which song he's speaking of. As he's gotten older they're a tad easier to figure out. :) Ace's playlist in no particular order is as follows:

The Children Song AKA Jesus Loves the Little Children
The Deer Song
AKA As The Deer
The Rainbow Song
AKA Somewhere Over the Rainbow
(he has since evolved on most nights to requesting this by it's proper title...
it makes me a little sad.)
The Dawnser Song AKA The National Anthem
(guess who sung that one first?
And I love that it's "Dawnser" for the 'dawn's early light')
The Infantry Song AKA The Lord's Army
The Wee Little Man Song
AKA Zaccheus Was a Wee Little Man

The B-I-E Song AKA The B-I-B-L-E
Twinkle Twinkle AKA Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

I'm sure there are others and if I think of them I'll add them to the list to preserve this fleeting time in our little guy's life. As there will come a time he doesn't want me to sing at all.
