Day 786 -- Skidamarink

Remember this song? 

"Skidamarink-ee-dink-ee-dink, Skidamarink--ee-doo...
I...
Love...
You...

"Skidamarink-ee-dink-ee-dink, Skidamarink--ee-doo...
I...
Love...
You...

I love you in the morning, and in the afternoon,
I love you in the evening, and underneath them moon!

Oh,

"Skidamarink-ee-dink-ee-dink, Skidamarink--ee-doo...
I...
Love...
You...

I...
Love...
You...

I...
Love...
You. Too. Boo Boo Be Do! Mwah!"

I still remember this song as the outro to "The Elephant Show" when I was a little girl.  There were even dance moves to go along with it. 

Today I sang it to my little girls, who giggled and shrieked as I kissed them at the end.  They caught on quickly to the simple lyrics, and soon we were all singing it together. 

It was a blessing to me today to see the smiles on their faces as we sang and to hear them say "I love you" to me over and over again.

Thank God for Skidamarink!

Lord, thank you for a fun and silly song that allowed me to connect with my kids today.  Thank you for the time we had together and for the chance we had to just enjoy each other's company.  In your name I pray, Amen.
