  1. Hmmm #1 learn to be more patient from the start. This would apply for lots of examples. Maybe start the singing at bedtime at a younger age. It’s a fun thing and they enjoy it (unless I’m doing the singing) don’t compare yourself to other mom’s you are doing a mighty fine job

  2. All of us parents could make a list , I know I could. But keeping your sense of humor as a parent cause your kids make you laugh so much! And Don keep singing!

  3. Now come on, we have been singing since they were babies. Remember all the repeats of Twinkle and the ABCs. LOL.
