Blast from Nursery Rhyme Past

Lily came home from school today (she still goes to daycare 2 days a week) singing a song that sounded vauguely familiar to me.  Something about a bumblebee, my mommy, and he stung me.  In a flash, my 1st grade music teacher, Mrs Moore popped into my mind and I started to sing …

I’m bringing home my baby bumblebee
Won’t my Mommy be so proud of me
I’m bringing home my baby bumblebee -
OUCH!! It stung me!!

I’m squishin’ up my baby bumblebee
Won’t my Mommy be so proud of me
I’m squishin’ up my baby bumblebee -
EW!! What a mess!!

Lily started to squeal with delight, bouncing and bobbing all around.  “Again, again!” she yelled. I knew that the song had several more verses so I quickly hit up trusty ol’ google and found a link to the lyrics.  Below is the entire song.  Sing this to your toddler, with hand gestures and all, and watch him or her giggle something fierce.  But be forewarned, you’ll be singing it all night.  I even had to do a slow mo version for her bedtime song tonight.  What lovely imagery right before bed!
