sleepy time play list

what do babies like
hugs and kisses, teddy bears
obnoxious music

I’m sure there are many, many, many other mamas out there with babies who eschew the nap. The wee-er one, who has pretty much outgrown her swing, though we use it anyway, will only nap in said swing. And she will only nap in said swing if certain music is playing. I know we’ve talked about her love for Rob Zombie. And I know I’ve discussed weaning her off of the death metal and onto something a little more appropriate – like SexyBack. I have to say, though, Rob Zombie is still a favorite around here.

I thought it’d be fun to share one of the wee-ER one’s newer sleeping playlists, so that maybe some other mama with a tiny tiny who refuses sleep will discover the magic of inappropriate music and its secret lullaby properties.

Here you go. And remember – much of this music is chosen for its annoying properties (though I won’t lie – I love it all. Well, most of it. Well, some of it.)
