This is a rather recent holiday, and I have no idea why June 8th was chosen.
Nonetheless, I love the concept “upsy daisy,” which is a playful, reassuring phrase one uses while lifting a child or otherwise giving someone a helping hand.
We celebrated with cheery good-morning music. And with picking daisies, of course.
First, here is the Upsy Daisy Song, which makes me smile just for the bizarreness of it. I’m not sure why it makes Esmé smile, but it does…
A few other morning favorites:
- Open Up Your Heart and Let the Sunshine In, a Flintstone classic that my mother used to sing in the mornings.
- Top of the World by the Carpenters.
- Let Your Light Shine by Hillsong when you need to get moving.
What music gets YOU up gloriously, gratefully, and gleefully in the mornings?
