I've been composing a list in my head for years. It's a list of lullabies that I want to remember to sing my child. It's grown with songs remembered from movies, moments in my life, and the radio.

I cannot wait to rock my son some late night this summer and whisper these words in his ear.

Combing through my iTunes account pulled these songs into the playlist that will hopefully soothe a sad face and inspire a giggle or two.

    Goodnight my angel by billy Joel
    My wish by rascal flatts

  2. I love Carly Simon, but I've never heard of that one. Will put it on the must download list.

  3. My two favs are Golden Slumbers by the Beatles
    and Forever Young by Bob Dylan.
    Ryan used to sing Golden Slumbers to Colin when he was little and they still break into it at any moment!

  4. I love Golden Slumbers- I used to listen to a Ben Folds version all the time.
