I love my mom. Every once and awhile, I even catch myself being my mom. Sometimes its in that “grrr…I swore I would never (fill in the blank) like my mom” where you want to kick yourself for doing those things you said you’d never do…like answering the questions “Why?” with “Because I said so!”, ummm hi, guilty as charged.
While those times happen more often than I care to admit, the times I really like, though, are the ones when you suddenly see yourself mothering like your mother. Cuddling your little baby in a towel after her bath and rocking her while you dry her, braiding her hair into perfect little French braids, and singing songs. Those are the best. The little songs you remember from childhood. Sometimes I don’t even remember knowing the words to a song, but find myself singing it with my littles, or better yet, hearing them sing them to me.
Sweetest. Thing. Ever.
One of those songs for us is “You Are My Sunshine”. It’s one of my favorites. I love the sweet , old fashioned melody and the playful feel of the song. I especially love hearing it sung by my two year old. Watch out world…she’s gonna have a voice on her someday!
Inspired by the song, I created a printable Sunshine design. Then I also created it again in two other color schemes. Iguess I just liked it that much:) This design has soft colors and stitching embellishments to give it that handmade sweet cuddly feel. It would be perfect for a first birthday party.
