Baby Alice

A new lullaby for my babies

Over time our bedroom routines have lost their…uh-em routine. Including my favorite part, lullabies. From Crosby Stills & Nash to James Taylor, it mellowed my baby out as well as me.

I heard this today by Tom Petty, and I am immediately adding it to my mixtape of lullabies, and adding back lullabies — to help cozy and calm these long winter goodnights.

Enjoy…and I hope to write about more of these moments. Because let’s get real, when was the last time someone’s asked you if you heard a really good song? And this is the good stuff.

Music can hit you, and this one hit me in the heart. It deserves to be shared & documented in this whole journey…or at least the one I had today.

Lyrical sampling:

goodnight baby, sleeptight my love

may god watch over you from above

tomoorow I’m working, what would I do

I’d be lost and lonely if not for you

so close your eyes

we’re alright for now

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Songs are like sunshine

Its cold, so Alice and I left the books on the shelf, and listened to songs about flowers and sunshine tonight.

 

 

 

My girl

I’m in LA for work. I love that Alice and her dad get to bond while I’m away. Truth: Each morning I cry because I miss her. I feel weak. Reality: Time to wake up, shower, deep breathes – I am strong and I will be home soon to kiss this little munchkin!

Good deeds, making strangers into friends since forever…

When you think about your day-to-day, few of us are lucky enough to spend it with who we choose, or who we love. We are running to the store, spending over 9 hours at work and deciding between a great dinner with little down time or something quick with a bit more time to play…

Its not just you, it is also the people around you. Do you ever look around while running an errand and think, wow that person looks like they are having a shitty day & does not want to be here. Taking it even further, do you ever do anything about it? Probably not, and I do not blame you.

But – how impactful it can be when someone does.

Just this past Sunday I was picking up bagels from Myers Bagel Bakery on Pine Street to bring home for family & houseguests. Alice decided she wanted to join me, then decided she wanted to not come with me (once we were in the car). While in the bagel shop, she proceeded to slap me across the face in a fit of rage (yes, I know what your thinking, how could such a precious little peanut do that?).

If it were not for the presence of others in a public place, I would have been quite upset, but instead I continued to pick her up and walk out the door. That’s when a baker from the shop ran out to my car and proceeded to give me a look of support, and handed Alice a warm bagel.

Good deeds, making strangers into friends since forever…

 

 

 

Just a little over 2 years ago, I had a baby…

Our friend, Joe, made this video for us – looking back I am so glad we did this. Captures the little precious moments so well… #rightsideproductions

Like a girl

I hope Alice snowboards like a girl 🙂 Hat’s off to the team from Always (never thought I would say that):

Waking up your senses…

Never under estimate the power of a beautiful song, and one of those short movies that go along with it. What are those called again? Oh yeah, a music video. Well, this one is too good not to share. 

Love creates memories, memories are forever, which makes love last forever… This is at least my interpretation of this ear pleaser.

Enjoy!

 

I will never let you go
I know you want me, know you want me
Learning love means not to know
I’ll learn to take it, learn to take your love
Love

I will never leave your fears
I know you’re lost now, know you’re lost now
Counting days won’t buy us years
We’ll start it over, start it over love

I’ll never let the magic go, I’ll float away into your afterglow (Love)
I’ll never let you go, I’ll melt away into your afterglow

The sky will melt in tears
I’ll float away into your afterglow
The sky will melt in tears
I’ll melt away into your afterglow

People never smile to say goodbye
Leaving means there’s nothing left to try
But I broke my wings for you
I smiled as you untied our love for good

Love

The sky will melt in tears
I’ll float away into your afterglow
The sky will melt in tears
I’ll melt away into your afterglow
The sky will melt in tears
I’ll melt away into your afterglow
The sky will melt in tears
I’ll float away into your afterglow
