The song

Ok, so when my son was little I did a lot of rocking and walking and singing to him to get him to sleep. I got bored with the usual songs, so I started changing the words and making my own variations. One such variation stuck and I sing it to him just about every night. For reference, the nickname I have for him is Stinkerbutt. Why? 'Cause have you ever smelled baby poop? 'Nuff said.

So, at the risk of totally ruining any image I might have, here's my song. To the tune of "You are my sunshine":

You are my Stinkerbutt
My little Stinkerbutt
You make poopies
Twice a day
You'll never know dear
How much they stink
'cause we throw
those diapers away.

Yep, that's definitely one that will prove humiliating when I sing it during my toast at his wedding. ;)


  1. *sniffle*

    You are the best daddy ever. Love you.

  2. Well, that is just as sweet as can be.

    No way I'm taking any more of your guff on Twitter. You're just a big old softie!

    And yes, I said "guff."


  3. That's very sweet.

    You and my husband would have a great time making up songs together. He thinks every song can be improved with some butts and some poops!
