My third born is soon turning another year older, a fact that makes me feel both happy and wistful as he is the baby in the family. So though I may be holding back tears as he blows out his birthday candles, I also love that I’ve found another birthday song to play for him as we celebrate another year.
Happy Birthday to You by Charlie Hope is a quick-tempo, upbeat song that highlights her pretty voice without a lot of distraction. And though I can’t quite hit the notes she does, I’ll still love to sing along with her for all of my kids’ birthdays. Even if it makes me all verklempt.
