When Bella was a little baby we used to sing "you are my sunshine" to her as well as other songs, but this one tends to be almost a universal one that many people know and have great memories about. Bella's four-year-old preschool teacher Miss Starr (no the teacher wasn't a four-year-old) used to take each little kid one-by-one and put them on her lap and sing this song to them...she still remembers that special time at the end of the day while waiting for their parents to pick them up. Another funny memory of this song for me was when I was a teenager my dad would take me to his Lions Club meetings for a father/daughter dinner and all the dads sang this song at every meeting. I thought it was such a hoot to hear all these "old" men singing this sweet song as we got ready to eat dinner.
I just finished this painting and I'm really happy with how it turned out. Bella's getting older and her room decor is Paris-themed with dark pink and black, so she no longer has this type of art in her room, so I made it for my etsy shop. It makes me think back to her sweet, chubby little baby days.
I hope you like this new painting of mine as I really feel good about how it turned out. I'm hoping a sweet girl will get to hang this on her wall. Do you have any sweet memories of songs from your childhood or your children's childhood?
