Naptime and bedtime are a little more fun (or infuriating) now that the boys can communicate their wants and needs as far as what lullabye they would like to hear. For about a week, I tried singing every song I could think of when Nash requested "butter", "bihdeen", and "pihdeen." He would let me get about a line in and then freak out that it wasn't the right song. Imagine my triumph when I discovered he was asking for the "spinning" song, which is in fact "do as I'm doing." 

The favorite right now is "once there was a snowman" followed by "the baby song" which is "if I ain't got you" by Alisha Keys. If I sing both of those, the boys go straight down, no fussing. 

Someday we'll get back to more spiritual primary songs, but for now I kind of dig their taste. 


  1. Mack's favorite at the moment is Jesus wants me for a sunbeam. It's my saving grace when trying to change his wiggly bum :)

  2. pshhh, singing any bedtime lullaby to your babies is spiritual. Even if it is a pop song :)

  3. Haha! I dig their taste too! So cute! You're such a patient mom to try so hard to figure out what he was wanting. :) xoxoxo

  4. Haha!!! So know how this goes. Brigham loves Popcorn Popping (the perfect, relaxing lullaby!) and In the Leafy Treetops, any song where I sing the name of Jesus...and sometimes, 5 little monkeys. Isn't it a blast having them talk?!
