I Change the Words...

The first time I sang "You are my Sunshine" to Seraph:
"You are my sunshine,
my only sunshine,
you make me happy,
when skies are gray.
you'll never know dear,
how much I love you...."
[I couldn't bring myself to say the words...so I sang:]
"each and every day!"

It didn't start with Seraph, though....the first night I was a mother, I took took a very tiny Beautiful Rabbit in my arms and rocked her to sleep.  While I rocked her, I sang:
"Rock-a-bye baby in the tree top,
when the wind blows the cradle will rock.
When the bough breaks,
the cradle will fall,
and mommy will catch you,
cradle and all."
My kids still think those are the real words....

Accidental Souls...

I can't find my camera!! I've missed a few days of the twins-pictures....but it started seeming like a LOT of pictures.  But now I'm sad that I don't have the days I missed.  OK, I *will* find my camera tomorrow.

Sitting in church today,...
it's hard to keep all 5 kids reverent for that long.  Haqon and I usually sit with the kids between us to keep them boxed in.  Today we sat together, which was heavenly.... :)  But, when we were singing, he accidentally sang "souls" when he should've sang a totally different word.  It completely changed the meaning and I may have elbowed him a bit.  Then I got distracted towards the end (by one of the twins) and *I* sang "souls" in the same line of the chorus because he totally infected me! So not my fault!!
