Bedtime songs

I love to sing to our kids at bedtime, especially to Micah who sings along. But, every so often, he’ll throw a monkey wrench in the whole bedtime process by requesting a song that doesn’t exist.

“What song do you want?”
“Umm, the monster truck song”

At first, this would throw me, but soon I realized that this is my cue to make up a song about monster trucks. Currently, the song about monster trucks is a favorite, so I thought I would share it with you in case you, too, get a request for a song about monster trucks and feel a bit put on the spot.

To the tune of “Mary had a Little Lamb”

Micah had a monster truck
Monster truck, monster truck
Micah had a monster truck
It vroomed to him each day

Vroom, vroom, vroom, vroom, vroomy vroom
Vroomy vroom, vroomy vroom
Vroom, vroom, vroom, vroom, vroomy vroom
It vroomed to him each day.

I find the second verse to be particularly inspired, don’t you?

Do your kids request imaginary things?
