The song “The Rainbow Connection” is special to us for lots of reasons, but mainly because it’s the song that I sing them to sleep with when they are babies. I love the lyrics because they are all about wishing, finding the end of rainbows, and childhood wonder. I decided to make some DIY rainbow nursery art with my kids to hang in their room. The art that we made has the lyrics of the first verse.
That’s the end of the tutorial, but thought you might like to know the reason behind the song. If you are unfamiliar with it, it’s a song that Kermit sings in The Muppet Movie. Ok, I know what you are thinking. Muppets? Really? It’s actually a pretty good song. Go watch it on YouTube or something. When Joe and I were dating, he sang it to me in a Kermit voice. So hot right? Haha… we were are so weird! Anyway, that was the night that we first kissed. Don’t worry, it wasn’t because of the song… it was because I love Kermit… TOTALLY joking!!! Kermit’s just all right. 🙂 Anyway, I made the song my ringtone for him, and it quickly became “our” song.
|Look how young and skinny we were!|
We danced to the Sarah McLachlan version of it at our wedding. Yes, weird again, but at least it wasn’t the Kermit version!
Fast forward to a couple years later when our first child, Evan, was a baby. He HATED being in his car seat, but for some reason, when we played “The Rainbow Connection,” he would stop crying. For this reason, it became the lullaby that I used to sing him to sleep.
|This is when we brought him home from the hospital. So little!|
I sang it to Audrey as a baby, and I sing it to Leah now. It will always be a special song for us.
