Love notes under the moon

favorite preschool song!

skinna marink a dinka dink
skinna marink a do
I love You
I love you in the morning and in the afternoon
I love in the evening underneath the moon
skinna marink a dinka dink
skinna marink a doo
I love you !

been singing this for years; first with my two girls hand motions included and now another generation sings/moves to this in toddler classes at the preschool where I work(play!)

Their young faces radiate as bright as the moon in my yard...it's true Love. I hope your work can feel like play at times.

My work feels like play most days. I get to cut and fold paper. ( I'm an art director )

Oh, I had totally forgotten that song from when my children were young. Thank you for bringing back some great memories!

I understand if you don't want to play along with it; artists are on their own journey and it sometimes difficult to change course and entertain something like this. Only wished to drive a little traffic your direction.

This is too cute! You know, I have a woman who has the most beautiful red hair who sits in front of me in class and dang if I don't think of you each time I sit behind her. : )

I always find it so hard to get a photo of the moon. How did you do this? I love it!

My work feels like play ALL the time. And I couldn't be luckier. However, my teen girls are SICK TO DEATH of me singing all my songs at home. Come on, who doesn't love five little pumpkins???

My daughter used to LOVE this little song and would sing it at the top of her lungs. It must have done the trick because she's an opera singer now! ;)

Followed you over here from Mary's photography site and your place is interesting. Photos with just the right words to accompany them.

And then I read the words of the song I used to sing to my children when they were so small. This is good.
