Mommy Moments: Song from a Mom's Heart


When Andrea was young she is not allowed to cry for long because her monitor will alarm because her heart rate will go up. While rocking her on my arm, I have sang so many songs (all those Bisayan lullaby). I always hear my Mom singing those songs and that why I learn to sing them or hum them for Andrea.

I remember that her favorite was the "Alimokoy" and it goes like this... Alimokoy, alimokoy sing kahoy. Ayaw pagputla kay makalolooy. Kung imong putlon, mangabali ang sanga, mga laya ang dahon mapupo ang bunga... I know I sound funny, imagine I will be humming this song wherever we are. The funniest thing is even Dave knows how to hum this song....
