Lullabies: 0 Lady Gaga: 1

So tonight, as every night, I was singing my son to sleep. Except it was more like trying to hold a conversation while wrestling with a crocodile, not happening. This kid is noisy! And he just wouldn't settle down, so since he wasn't paying attention I started singing what I like. I kid you not, he put his head on my shoulder and didn't move again until I put him into his crib by "You taste like whiskey when you kiss me, oh". I was surprised, because I expected the faster tempo to rouse him more. Who'd have thunk?

Parenting Resolutions

So in the spirit of the new year I am going to start a post about my parenting resolutions. I don't have a long list because I am only going to write them down as they occur to me. My only resolution so far, because I just thought of it, is this:

1. I will never tell my children they should be ashamed of themselves.
2. I will never spank my children

Ok, that was two. I thought of the second one in the moment.
