Lately, she's taken to singing it herself - to her 'babies'.
Which is really cute, except for the teeny, tiny little fact that she sings it a tad bit differently than I do. And I don't just mean in the 'making up words to replace the ones I don't know' kind of way. I mean she sings it differently.
Instead of being soft and sweet and soothing, along the lines of something that would help a little one to go to sleep, the way she sings it, it's more like the chorus of a song from a Swedish death metal band (cause you know how hard core those Swedes are when it comes to their heavy metal) - played at the highest volume possible.
I sing it like this (in hushed tones):
'Hush little baby, don't say a word...'
Little P sings it like this (remember, death metal):
'HUSH LITTLE BABY, DON'T SAY A WORD...'
It would be really funny if it wasn't so disturbing (and I just know you are picturing my little girl all ‘metaled’ up and head banging now aren’t you?).
This is actually what she looks like when she’s singing it:
All peaceful and sweet, right? That picture is totally misleading (she’s actually breaking glass with the volume that she’s singing at).
I really shouldn't be complaining. She could be singing 'Rock a Bye Baby' in that tone.
Now THAT would be scary.
Till next time – you might want to keep those noise cancelling headphones handy. It’s probably gonna get loud in here.
