Nowhere else but in our mothers' arms. Too bad we don't remember any of it when we are finally able to form memories (and that would be at 3 to 4 years of age).
I was thinking about this while feeding my Via awhile ago. It's too bad she won't even remember me singing and humming to her. If only I could record every hum I make during feeding time then probably I would have composed something as great as those of Debussy or James Horner.
I have hummed the following songs:
- mellow dramatic version of Bahay Kubo (LOL!)
- Anima Christi
- I Love You Lord
- Our Father
- St.Francis Prayer/Song
And the rest were just made up as I go along. (Para na ring nagsimba ang baby ko LOL!)
Awhile ago, I also tried singing the lyrics and mouthing the words. I noticed she was looking at my mouth and frowning a bit. When she started to cry, I came back to humming. LOL! Momma's got a lot of practicing to do, I know!
