Slippery Slope

It all started innocently enough. You know, that blessed kid-bedtime routine of jammies, brush-your-TEETH! and a story in the rocking recliner. One story. Then: Well...ok. Two stories. No more. Well, Maybe just one song after the story.

You get the picture.

So now we read two to three stories and sing 4 songs, always in the same order. I sing the one from Sesame Street about the 10 tiny turtles on the telephone (Sara has named it "Numbers") and the one Earnie sings called "I Don't Want to Live on the Moon" (aptly called "Moon"). Sara then breaks into Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star followed by ABC in rousing drunken-sailor-ese.

And, yes, we close the bedroom door during the above performance. Natalie Merchant has nothing to fear.
