Mother’s Day Songs


Five Pretty Mommies

Sing to tune of “Five Little Ducks”

Five pretty mommies I once knew,

Fat ones, skinny ones, tall ones, too,

But the one in the middle that belongs to me…

I love her and she loves me!

Down to the grocery we did go,

Wibble – wobble, wibble – wobble, to and fro,

But the one in the middle that belongs to me,

I love her and she loves me!

**Our new teachers thought we were crazy to sing this song, but the kids will sing anything to this tune and the mother’s laughed so hard they cried. One little girl said “My mommy’s one of the fat ones – she’s a pretty one, too!”

It’s a big hit with our group!

    My 4&5 year-olds sang this for their Moms in class before Mother’s Day. We used the familiar hand motions substituting the ASL sign for “Mom” in place of pointing out for “you”.

    Skinamarink – a dink – a dink
    Skinamarink – a doo!
    I love mom! I love mom!

    Skinamarink – a dink – a dink
    Skinamarink – a doo!
    I love Mom! Yes, I do!
    I love her in the morning
    and in the afternoon
    I love her in the evening
    and underneath the moon!
    Oh, Skinamarink – a dink – a dink
    Skinamarink – a doo!
    I love Mom! I love Mom!
