Y is for the Yummy Song

When the Eldest Niece was a baby sitting in her high chair, eating time was show time. I believe she had me pegged for a softie and could have me perform with a shake of her head  as I brought a spoonful of food to her tightly closed mouth.

And, I did. I sang a made-up song with great relish. I don't recall the exact words anymore, or even the tune. It went something like this:
Yummy, yummy. Here comes some lovely yummy to your tummy. Open wide. Here comes yummy.
That was over 35 years ago. I do remember that she opened her mouth to eat a few bites when I sang it.  Those were great times with the Eldest Niece.
