Mermaid Lullaby

{via Purl Bee}
somebody made this! with their brain and their hands. i'm jeal.

this week is making me sad. i won't get into why. but it's times like these when i'd love a momma come play with my hair and sing me to sleep. any momma will do (that's a lie, she has to smell good). this is what i sing to my kids when they need a little extra help settling into their beds (after which they are forbidden to come out of their rooms for ANY reason other than the house being on fire...but then they do anyway when they have a hangnail or something else equally important ;)

(i substitute "mermaid" with their name...or as sheamus requests "handsome boy")

Rest my little darling
You’ve had a busy day
The sun is a'falling
And it’s time for me to say

Hush, hush, hush little mermaid,
Good night.
Hush, hush little mermaid,
Sleep tight.
Close your eyes,
Close your eyes and lay down your head,
In your peaceful ocean bed.
Have a snooze, please, like I said and
Hush, hush, hush little mermaid,
Good night.
Hush little mermaid,
Sleep tight.
You’re feeling kind of sleepy,
You’re feeling kind of loopy,
Your fins are getting floppy,
And your eyelids getting droopy.

May your dreams be sweet,
As you fall into a snooze.
Perhaps again we’ll meet,
But now we have to cruise.

So hush, hush, hush little mermaid,
Good night.
Hush, hush little mermaid,
Sleep tight.
Hush, hush little mermaid,
Good night.
Hush little mermaid,
Hush little mermaid,
Good night.

I know it's the pregnancy hormones, but I cried listening to this! I can't wait to meet my little one.

I have this song on my iTunes actually and I love it. I'm glad you love it too. Sorry your week is crummy. I hope you feel better soon, my dear.

You are lovely

This is such a beautiful song. It makes me want children right now, just so I can sing it to them. I think I will learn it ready for when I next babysit. Gorgeous.
