Lullaby and good night

January 26, 2012

I thought long and hard about the song that is to become my signature lullaby song for my sweet boy. So many options. Something traditional, like ‘Twinkle, twinkle?’ Something borrowed, like my sister’s ‘The Ants go Marching?’

I played around with a few our first few months together. I changed it up periodically. You know, trying a little ‘Blackbird’ by The Beatles one day and a lesser-known lullaby by Billy Joel another day. (Yes, I’m aware I’m seriously dating myself with these artist choices.)

Now that we’re working on a regular sleep routine with a book and a song, I think I’ve found my pick. ‘Dream a little dream of me’ by the Mamas and the Papas. Ever heard it?

What’s your lullaby?

    Ours is Brahm’s lullaby but with my own words. The words are those of desperation that I repated over and over again one night with my first baby at 3am when it was all I could do to stay sane. It was that or return her to the hospital. The words caught on.

    Abs, I’d like to hear you sing this over and over and over. Seems a little complex for a sleep routine to me. I used to go through the litany of kids songs, old mcdonald, bingo, etc. The Ants always seemed to be the perfect length of time to cover while I was doing laps to get her to sleep.

      I can’t do ants because I can’t ever think of something to rhyme with 7!
