Anyway, back to the issue at hand . . .
I sing to Heather nearly every night. Usually it's two songs. I start with Angel Lullaby, or I Feel My Savior's Love, or Baby Mine. Then I finish up with Suo Gan-one verse humming and one verse English (I haven't gotten around to tackling the Welsh yet).
The thing is, as much as I love these songs, after four months, I'm getting a little tired of them. I need some variety. I've added Teach Me to Walk in the Light to the line-up (or rotation, if you will), but it's just not enough. I need more.
My brother-in-law used to sing the theme from Cheers to my niece when he put her to bed. My cousin used to sing Piano Man to his kids when it was their bedtime. And, let's not forget, I have a nephew who for the first year or so of his life, could only be calmed by a rousing rendition of Take Me Out to the Ballgame. Obviously, it's not a dearth of available songs that is the issue here, not in the least. And yet, in all the available songs, is there one that would be perfect for my Heather? A song that has slipped my mind? A song that I would love singing, Heather would love hearing, and Eric would smile at as it wafts its way to him over the baby monitor? Surely there must be.
So, for the first time that I can think of, dear readers, I'm directly asking you for your help. Oh sure, I've asked/allowed you to vote on what we should call our unborn daughter (and then Eric and I ended up disregarding your votes and named her a name that tied for last place in the poll). I've also given you the opportunity to win a prize by making a donation and then leaving a comment. But this time is different. This time, I'm coming right out and I'm asking for your advice. Nay, even more, I'm issuing the clarion call! Lurkers, regular commenters alike--come into the sun! Let your voice be heard! Please--I need your help! What song would you sing to your Heather if she were your Heather? No polls, no giveaways, no monetary donations. Just advice--pure counsel and advice.
I await your lullaby lovin' wisdom.
(It doesn't have to be an actual lullaby per se. I just like the way those two words-(lullaby & lovin') sound and look together.)
