Nearly every sleep time since Mackenzie was born 4 years ago, whoever is putting the kiddos to sleep sings them a song. We often sing one for each child, and we definitely take requests.
It’s a sweet time of the day for me and it’s even more rewarding now that Mackenzie will sing along with me. Still, though, I am not particularly musical so I love it when Scott is around to keep me on key.
Moment of the Week – November 12th, 2011
On this day, I laid Caitlyn down for her nap gently, and began to sing her a song. She signed (and declared verbally) “all done!” “all done!”
I assumed she was upset that it was naptime, so I continued to sing soothingly and smooth her blanket.
Yet she persisted: “All done!!”
I paused my singing to assess the situation, and she promptly rolled on her side and closed her eyes.
Apparently my singing was interfering with her sleep agenda.
