You know, it’s funny. I never drank coffee before my daughter was born. I always laughed at those people who had to have a cup before they could start their day. Well, now, I’m kind of one of those people.

But here’s what’s really funny. I started drinking it to keep myself awake during the days after all-nighters with my newborn. Now, she’s almost four and it’s a habit for me. But she gets to me before I get to my first cup and wants stuff. The only solution is to wake up before she does and that would only make me more tired and in need of more coffee.


I’m completely screwed, right?!

Emma’s Song Series: #1 “Go To Sleep”

Emma’s Song Series

I’ve written a few songs, both original and “to the tune of”, for my daughter in the last 3.5 years. Someday, I plan to publish them or whatever. I thought I might start by putting them here.

GO TO SLEEP (sung to the tune of Brahms’ Lullaby)

Go to sleep, Emma Grace.

Dream of all things around you.

Dream of butterflies in the sky, flying way up high.

Dream to dance, dream to sing, dream to be anything.

Go to sleep, Emma Grace.

First, I’ll kiss your face.
