Our Song

At the end of Open Season 2 all the little animals start singing, "Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near? Just like me, they long to be, close to you." Thanks to the Veggie Tales Junior's Bedtime Songs CD I received as a baby shower gift, I've been singing that song to my son for almost 6 years now. Tonight I crooned along with the critters as we finished watching the movie, quipping, "They're singing our song!" Daniel just loves when I do that. He also loves when I cry during movies. He was NOT very impressed, however, that I actually got up and danced during parts of Mama Mia. I'm learning the fine art of Embarrassing Your Offspring.
As we cuddled in bed after the movie, he made me sing, "the Open Season song" two times before he drifted off to sleep.

I was about 9 or 10 when that came out as the Carpenters' first single and big hit. It's sweet that it has morphed into a lullaby.
