Miss J's Lullaby

Miss J sometimes has trouble going to sleep. We have tried lots of different things to help her at bedtime - lately putting on some soft music has been a winner.

Tonight Miss J got up after bedtime and came to ask if she could put some music on. I said yes, as long as she put it on softly.
A little while later I crept down to her room to check on her, but when I opened the door I cracked up laughing...

Instead of Beethoven at Bedtime or Sounds from the Sea or any of the other multitude of gentle bedtime music CD's she has, tonight Miss J's chosen lullaby was The Cat Empire. Specifically, "Hello" on repeat.

Miss J was fast asleep.

Miss F, however, was now wide awake, jumping up and down on her bed and playing her teddy like a trumpet. She didn't notice me at first, but when she did, the timing of her reaction was so perfect we couldn't have done it better if we tried.

The trumpet sounded, her teddy was played, she swung around to face me and together with the Cat Empire she said,

"Hello, hello."

Kids! You NEVER know what to expect. By watching children I'm convinced that God has a great sense of humor! So grateful for the smiles and chuckles you share with those of us who are blessed enough to know where to find you!

Trish - The Cat Empire are indeed very jazzy, which is fitting really, as Jazzy is (one of) Miss J's nicknames!

Lani - Yeah.. They get their kewlness from me ;-) LOL

lol - have you actually heard their "Lullaby" song - very unsleepy music indeed.

Alison said...

lol Jeanie - I quite like the Lullaby song and I agree that it is not very sleepy!
I read somewhere (ages ago) that heavy metal/rock music is supposed to be great for putting small children to sleep because all they hear is the beat (or something along those lines..).
I was never brave enough to try it, but maybe Miss J has proved the theory! lol
