I know they say you should sing to children but....

This morning Ginger was playing with her merry-go round rabbit toy.  We had this out in the main living area for months and she showed no interest in it.  Then I put it back in the spare room; and suddenly its her favourite toy!

Sorry about the light here, but it was super early.
Anyway, as it was spinning it struck me that I should sing her a rabbit song.  So I launched into the WWII classic "Run, Rabbit" only to realise that the entire song is about rabbit hunting.  Hardly apropriate for a 15 month old. I sort of stopped singing after the first two lines.

Run, rabbit, run, rabbit, run, run, run.
Run, rabbit, run, rabbit, run, run, run.
Bang, bang, bang, bang, goes the farmer’s gun
Run, rabbit, run, rabbit, run, run, run
Run, rabbit, run, rabbit, run, run, run.
Don’t give the farmer his fun, fun, fun.
He’ll get by without his rabbit pie,
So run, rabbit, run, rabbit, run, run, run.

I really need to think about some more appropriate song choices.  I should have stuck with Little Peter Rabbit. 

The plus side of a 5am baby call is to see all God's glory in a beautiful sunrise like this.

Have a lovely Sunday.
