when you forget the words, just rhyme it with poo

Celestial Seasonings Tea contest

Bedtime is one of my favorite times of the day, when I can hang out with my girls, without any other distractions. We reflect on the day, talk about the plans for tomorrow, brush each others hair, read books, giggle, and of course, we end the day with at least one, if not more, songs. My selection of lullabyes range from show tunes like My Favorite Things and Castle on a Cloud to classics like Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and Row Your Boat.

When my girls were little, and colicky, one of my favorites was Hush Little Baby, mostly because I invariably forgot the words and would then make myself crack up with made-up lyrics. Nearly every time I would find a way to include the word “poo” because a) there are a lot of words that rhyme with poo and b) it always makes the kids (and me) laugh.

Recently I tried to sing Hush Little Baby with my kids before bedtime and asked them to help me come up with the words I didn’t know. Just guess what word made it into the song?

My girls and I made this video to help promote a contest that Celestial Seasonings Tea is running right now. Here are the reasons I LOVE and want to promote this contest:

1)   It entails singing.

2)   I am a huge fan of Celestial Seasonings tea.

3)   The prize a $5,000 Pottery Barn® gift card. Dude!
