The “ouchie” song

Let me explain: yesterday my son thunked his head on the floor while sitting up and reeeeeeaaaaaching for a toy. Note: he was on blankets and barely tapped the floor with his head, in slow motion, but his feelings were hurt.

While holding him and making the appropriate, "Ohh, oh, ohhhh, baby!" sounds, I realized we need a song. When he gets the inevitable ouchies, I can snuggle him and smooch him until we’re finished singing the song, then say, "Yay, you’re all better!"

So I needed to pick a song. I liked "You Are My Sunshine," but I’m didn’t think I wanted that to be the ouchie song. We already sang the ABC’s when I needed him to calm down or settle into sleep. My vocal range is tiny and I can’t carry a tune, so simple but not totally annoying when it gets stuck in my head would be awesome.

Then one of my friends suggested this awesomeness:

‎"If you fall and get a boo boo sing a song

If you have a little ouchie sing along

Let me wipe away your tears and kiss away your fears

No more crying ’cause the hurting is all gone”

(sung to the tune of “If You’re Happy And You Know It”)

I modified it a bit and am practicing it today. I’m not saying I want Javi to get an ouchie, but I am looking forward to having an ouchie song!

‎"If you fall and get a boo boo sing a song

If you have a little ouchie sing along

Let me tickle away your tears and then I’ll smooch away the smears

No more crying ’cause the hurting is all gone!”

  1. Oh that’s darling. You should video it or something and then you can embarrass him in high school (and aw over it together once he’s grown up).
