Mama Magic

Ava and I have this little morning tradition during the week where she sits in her vibrating chair with me in the kitchen while I start coffee and breakfast (usually bacon and eggs). To keep her entertained I put on some classic Johnny Cash and sing and dance around for her (sometimes I sing about bacon t00). It is hands down my favorite time of day because it is when she smiles the most. I've tried to share this experience with others but it is never the same when someone else is thrown into the mix. So it's our special time and ours only. Well, I've recently learned that little Ava also likes it when I softly sing her Johnny Cash songs. The only one I know perfectly is Folsom Prison Blues and it puts her right to sleep when she is sleepy fussy. It wasn't until last night that I realized maybe the lyrics to Folsom Prison Blues isn't appropriate for a 10 week old baby.....

  1. ooh, do not worry about the lyrics- I remember when I was little I would sing so many songs with lyrics I didn't even understand, and they didn't make a difference...I just remember enjoying the music!

    Plus, if Ava enjoys Johnny Cash, she's got great taste! She won't be one of those clone kids listening to miley cyrus all the time ;)
