It's all coming back to me now . . .

So my dearest Halle can pull her binky out, no biggy except for when we are in the car and she is tired, that is the only time she can get cranky. My tried and true method of calming her is singing to her. The Christmas songs were so great because i knew the words, and they were pretty soothing. The other day we were almost home and Halle pulled her binky out, started getting fussy and so i turned the radio dial to find something i could sing along with. then i heard it, Celine Deon's ("Salon Dalon" - for you laura)"It's all coming back to me now." Incredible rocking out tune

I was totally rocking out, and i am not sure if my what calms Halle is my voice or if she is trying to fall asleep so she can't hear me? but it works every time.

I wanted to blog about it because it made me think about my highschool girls and the good times we had rockin' out to Celine Deon!

Hey Russ and Lacey! I ran onto your blog through Kevin and Shayna's and I had to say 'hello!'. Your little girl is so cute and you all look so happy. I am glad you are doing so well. I hope you have a wonderful 2008!

We totally used to rock to this song. And I still love it. I am going to download it and start singing it with my girls.

Oh Salon Dalon....everytime I say Salon Dalon to my non-highland girlfriends they are just so confused and I just feel so bad for them. I am glad that Halle is learning early what good music really is...and Liz...mixed tapes gotta love them. That totally reminds me of the good old Tara, Lacey, Lizzie days hahaha!
