Seems I've started a nightly routine I can't get out of. Monkey No. 1 requires a short concert of me at bedtime. And really, how can I refuse since he's the only audience that really counts. I'm sure he'll grow out of it so I'm enjoying it before he tells me to shut up. Monkey No. 2 sings to his own march right now, so this is really for me and J-dawg.
Unfortunately, by that time of day my brain is fried and it seems my repertoire for lullaby's and soothing songs that calm the beast seems to be lacking. The usual kid's stuff just bores me to death, and he doesn't always dig it anyway. So I'm trying to expand the definition of what can be used as a good night song.
Although Twinkle Twinkle still makes the cut because that's the first song he sang when he was three. We do that one together.
So, do tell, my denizens of the blogdom, what song do you like to drift off to dreamland with? Got a favorite tune in your family? I'd love to hear it. In a foreign language? No problem. Something ultra-obscure? All the better. If I get a lot of suggestions I'll learn 'em and post later which ones gain the Monkey Triple Z Seal of Approval.
Peace and Nocturnes,
