When Lotus was a baby, she would cry hysterically every time we changed her bottom. She was so upset and the only thing that calmed her down was singing. So I would sing nonsense songs to make her happy while I changed her. One song that was a hit was the “Changa Bum” song. It was silly and it made her smile. One of the first things she or her older sister Rose started doing was saying the “Hey!” line at the end and it would make her happy.
Right now, two year old Lotus is in her room singing:
(to the tune of Jingle Bells”
Changa Bum today!
Mommy’s Gonna Changa Bum and make stinkies go away
Listening to her sing from her nap is making me smile today.
