In the last couple of days Diego has been trying to sing a song for me. He’s been whispering a little song under his breath and every time I would ask him about it he would become shy and run away. This morning he told me in the kitchen, in English so my mother wouldn’t understand, that he had a Mother’s Day song he wanted to sing to me in private. I told him I couldn’t wait to hear it and understood he wanted to sing it to me alone so I suggested he sing it to me in the car.
Once we pulled out of the garage he started with, “Her eyes, her eyes make the stars seem like they’re not shining.” Wow I was impressed! We don’t listen to a lot of pop music in the car or house so I thought it was interesting that he was singing to Bruno Mars. As he continued to sing more of Just The Way You Are by the time he belted, “you’re so amazing…” I was holding back tears! He said, “Mrs. Stroman said you would have tears of joy. I’m going to sing the whole song to you on Mother’s Day”. He already made me feel beautiful and special. Thank you Mrs. Stroman!
Other great songs for Mother’s Day? Play it for your momma or for yourself! I thought about these on my way back from taking Diego to school…
Tupac’s “Dear Mama” My favorite line? And even though I act craaazy/I gotta thank the Lord that you made me.
Beyonce’s “Run the World (Girls)” How we’re smart enough to make these millions/strong enough to bare the children.
Boys II Men “Song for Mama” Mama…Mama you know I love you… Remember that song? Love it!
Whitney Houston’s “Greatest Love of All” I found the greatest love of all inside of me/the greatest love of all/is easy to achieve/learning to love yourself/it is the greatest love of all.
Because seriously, as mothers, if we can’t be happy and love ourselves…we are not that great to anyone else.
Topo Gigio “Esa es mi mamita linda” jajaja soooo cute!!!
Timbiriche’s “Mamá” Que alegria da decir mama/Sintiendo en las palabras emocion/Puedo presumir de mi gran amor/Tu eres lo mas bello que jamas me sucedio. Tear!
Marco Antonio Solis “Te Amo Mamá” THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SONG IN SPANISH FOR MOMS! Crying just listening to it… Jose and his mom danced to this song on our wedding day.
Los Tigres del Norte “Mañanitas a Mi Madre” Si estas dormidita escucha este canto/que todos tus hijo convierten en llanto/tu que por tus hijos vives implorando/en ti madrecita vivimos pensando.
Something for everyone! We have less than a week to plan something special for our madrecitas! I can’t wait to hear more from Diego’s little voice. That for me is enough. Have a great week!
