Music Hath Charms ...

Sweet Patrick often, and unwillingly, finds himself "along for the ride."  He goes to Claudia's school everyday.  He goes to the grocery store.  He goes to my eye doctor appointments.  You get the gist.  It is regrettable that he does not care for being crammed into the carseat and shuttled about town.  More often than not, my car is magically (or maniacally) transformed into a torture chamber on wheels, Patrick screaming his little heart out.  I suspect he is trying to say something along the lines of "Why are you doing this to me?  WHY!!!  Release me!!!"  Fortunately, big sister and Mommy have found the solution to his woes!  Sing to the man!  It doesn't always work, but it often cheers him up long enough for our ear drums to stop ringing.   Here we are, doing our best to make him smile and pipe down a bit.

  1. so true! we have the same cursed automobile/torture chamber dilemma. For us, the key is Marvin Gaye. Or the Temptations. Or any other singer/band from the 60's or 70's. My girl has a distinct taste in music.

  3. We have the same problem and solution. Emerson just lights up when Olivia sings to him.
