Putting a child to sleep could be a nightmare, especially when you have to be at work at exactly 9am the next day.
Since she was born, I made sure that proper sleeping habit and schedule is followed. Lights are turned off at exactly 8:30pm. If I have to carry her like a baby until now, I still do just to keep her still.
But few months ago were different. She’s been hooked to her fave educational TV shows and books. I had noticed her fondness to only four things:
- Barney’s theme song
- Rock-a-bye-baby song
- In My Room (from Happy Feet soundtrack)
- Baba Black Sheep
Because of that, I helped her create familiar names related to the above songs as:
- Mabush (as how he refers Mumble in the movie)
As I put her to sleep, I usually ask her “Do you want Mama to sing for you?” Instead of nodding or simply saying yes, she’d say any of the above names depending on her mood.
