You be the Ice Cream

This is a traditional baby-hugging rhyme. Babies need lots of hugs, I hear. Some don't get enough. That is just wrong! Please rectify, immediately.

Bounce baby on lap and give a different kind of hug at the end of each line.

You be the ice cream and I’ll be the freezer.
Give baby a shivery hug

You be the lemon and I’ll be the squeezer.
Give baby a squeezy hug

You be the hot dog and I’ll be the bun.
Hug baby lengthwise with arms like hot dog buns.
You be the baby and we’ll have some fun!
Finish with a hug and a kiss on baby's head

Repeat until baby is properly hugged up!

Thanks to Kathryn from Fun with Friends at Storytime for hosting:


  1. I think I just died of cuteness. And then I hugged my baby a lot. Good stuff!

  2. Love is in the air. Thank you for sharing this!

  3. Thanks for not being mean to your babies!
