You know when you hear a song that magically transports you to your happy place? Whenever I hear Coldplay’s Yellow, it’s my wedding day all over again. If Bonnie Bailey’s Ever After plays, I’m transported to my twenties. If it’s any song by Pearl Jam, I’m head banging on auto pilot. Well, my daughter is two months shy of her second birthday and she has managed to secure her first happy place song.
Let me set the scene:
Toddler in her crib profuse with tears, vehemently refusing the nasal aspirator.
Cue in Baa-Baa Black Sheep and commence toddler head bob, arm flailing and tushy wiggles.
Toddler summons the delivery of farm books and flips to sheep page for sing-along.
Anthem repeated over and over… and over again.
Nasal aspirator administered.
What songs take you and your child to the happy place?
