I always sing to the kids before they go to bed, the littlest always seems to get the most songs and I was getting tired of our old ones so I decided to expand my horizons and pick a few new ones, but the boy is rather choosy and most of the new numbers didn't go over so well. Except for My Funny Valentine, which instantly became a favorite and must be sung every night at least twice now. Fine with me, I like it and it's not super long.

I was laying in bed with him last night, I read to him, sang him some songs, told him how happy I was that he was born and wished him a happy birthday one more time. He was silent for a few minutes and then started singing to me:

My funny valentine
Sweet comic valentine
You make me smile with my heart
Your looks are laughable
Unphotographable
Yet you're my favourite work of art

Is your figure less than greek
Is your mouth a little weak
When you open it to speak
Are you smart?

But don't change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little valentine stay
Each day is valentines day

Sure, he needed a tiny bit of help and he skipped the 'when you open it to speak' line but my heart melted listening to his sweet little boy voice. On his birthday, he gave me the best gift.
