Max always request for Mommy to pat him and sing him to sleep.
He usually picks a song himself, but Mommy will sing others that follows, either of the same tune or the same theme.
Today he said to Gadget-daddy that he wanted him to pat him to sleep and sing him a song.
His song request: Hush Little Baby Don't Say A Word.
Usually Mommy will sing this one in her own version*, which usually ends with us all giggling, before singing 'Five Little Ducks' and other animal rhymes.
Guess what Gadget-daddy did?
He Googled it from his i-Phone in bed with Max beside him and had it played out to him.
So we all heard the actual version of Hush Little Baby for the first time.
Yes, yes... we all learn something new everyday, even a lullaby.
But in the end, he still snuggled close to Mommy and lay quiet and sleep blanketed him.
Such a sweet little boy.
* Mommy's version:
Hush little baby don't say a word,
Mama's gonna buy you a mocking bird.
If that mocking bird don't sing,
Mama's gonna buy you a big brass ring.
If that big brass ring don't shine,
Mama's gonna buy you a bottle of lime.
And if that bottle of lime's too sour,
Mama's gonna get you some solar power!!
