Songs My Kid Knows, Six Months Old

Hello beautiful readers! Things are absolutely all over the place around here, what with holidays and my wife having a birthday and work deadlines and having to feed the cats. It’s possible that things are also a little chaotic for you! Well, I’m doing something a little bit different today. Instead of my usual fun, here is a list of songs, in no particular order, that my six month old child seems to recognize and enjoy

1. “Fall of the High School Running Back” – The Mountain Goats

You guys, this song is probably his favorite song in the whole world. What does that say about me as a parent? That was a rhetorical question.

2. “The Great Compassion Dirani”

This is actually not a song. It’s a Buddhist chant his Ma has been chanting to him since he was a lil’ tadpole that just barely had ears.

3. “Mama Can’t Wait Til Ma Get’s Home” – Me

This song is about what it sounds like. There are several versus that discuss the various things we are looking forward to doing when Ma does, indeed, get home, such as handing the baby to her.

4. “We Get Our Jammies, Jammies On Again, Get Our Jammies on” – Ma

I have had this one stuck in my head for a week now.

5. “Pink and Blue” – The Mountain Goats

At least it’s about a baby?

6. “Lean on Me”

Oh little baby, maybe one day I’ll have a problem that you’ll understand.

7. “Simple Gift”

Tis a gift to be simple, tis a gift to be free,
Tis a gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

My mom used to sing this one to me when I was little, d’awwwwwwww.


This guy though, this guy hates all music.
