sleeping baby

I think that every one of us has a picture in their mind of a mother, lulling her baby to sleep with some beautiful, soothing song, right?  Well, I’m a terrible singer and to top it off, I don’t really know any of these songs.  Did I just say that I’m a terrible singer?  Let me revise that statement.  In the car, I’m a ROCK LEGEND.  But in the presence of others, I’m just plain terrible.  My solution is to either sing songs that I make up on the spot, or just regular old top-40 songs.  My husband actually makes up songs where he goes through a list of every condiment that he can think of.  Other times it’s a song about cured meats.  You get the idea.  But me?  I stick to what I know and what suits the situation.  Either way, it works.  Well, sometimes 😉

Here are a few that work for me…

Did ya happen to see the most beautiful girl in the world? And if you did, was she crying, crying? (by Charlie Rich)
