Mrs Negative embraces her tardy Positive. Life after IVF and loving the son I never thought I'd have.

Christmas 1977, Santa bought me an Anne Murray cassette called "There's A Hippo In The Bathtub". I adored every song on it & remember belting out the words to "Animal Crackers" and "Teddy Bear's Picnic" with sheer glee. I found it in a drawer the other day & have been playing it for Cooper. It's still fun to listen to 31 years later. My duets with Anne are proving marvellous for lulling Cooper off for his daytime naps. Unfortunately, some of the sweet lullaby's make me sooooo damn emotional! Cradling my beautiful, tired boy...I end up bawling through the chorus of "Sleepy Time Baby" and ruining the tranquility.

Mental note to self: Rocking your son to sleep is more successful if he doesn't have fat, wet, sooky Mama tears splashing onto his cheeks!

I have the same problem, only I can't stop laughing.

I HAD THAT CASSETTE TOO!!!!! Over and over I would sing "Inchworm" with Anne, measuring the marigolds in the biggest American accent I could muster.

I'm off to look for it on iTunes ...

What a sweet face! BTW, Don't forget Carole King's "Really Rosey." Great kids songs from the 70s on that one! I did find it on CD once and bought it immediately.

Mony, Your son is sooo cute! He is going to be quite a charmer. I also love the Hippo for Christmas song. It will continue to amaze you how pround and in awe you are of your son for years to come.
