so, we have a nighttime ritual; of course, we have a 2-year-old! no matter what else she gets at bedtime, she insists mama rock her and sing "lu-la" (Tu-Ra-Lu). every night. even if my voice is gone with bronchitis and whatnot, MAMA must sing.

only we're being contrary tonight. and i've dragged her into her jammies and tucked her in properly in "blank" so we can sing, and i'm singing. and daddy comes by and drops her "poppy" (formerly known as Pop) in her lap. and she pipes up:

Daddy, Help, Help, I stuck in rocking chair! Ow Ow Ow!

what a little twerp! then when her song is over and we're on our way to her bed she is trying to convince me to sing again.

it's a fun age. laughing and cussing, all day long.

I love that you sing too-ra-lura to you kids! As did my parents, and theirs, and I do and Tiff does and Heath and Lafe (my brother) etc.

my mom sang it to us, but i think she got it from grandma mary. and i've been singing it exactly 12 years and a few days; it's one of the 3 favorites. tyler likes edelweiss best, but LaLa likes "La-LU". and gabe likes one i wrote him.

What a total stinker! She sounds just like Audrey! Good luck to both of us I think!
