Thank you, God

for rockin' babies!

Katie let me rock her last night. She doesn't usually sit still long enough to allow me to do that. I was holding her standing up and she laid her head on my shoulder and played with my hair. I love that! I don't have an adult sized rocking chair in her room, so I went to get the one out of the living room. I pulled it in there and we sat & rocked while listening to Tony Bennett on her cd player. I realize Tony may not be in every child's cd player, but I like to put in more than just the traditional lullabies every now & then and he is so relaxing to me. It was such a sweet time. (Of course, when I laid her down in her bed & left, she wasn't quite as sweet!)
We are going to a PTA "Meet & Greet" tonight at the park. For some reason, I am so nervous about it. I guess it's a little out of my comfort zone. I want to be involved, but I guess I worry about feeling inferior next to other parents who know each other better, drive better cars, live in bigger houses, etc. etc. etc. I know that totally doesn't matter in the whole scheme of things. It's a family event so we're all going. I told Chris if we feel uncomfortable we'll just casually walk over to the playground for awhile then make our way back to the car. I hope it goes well.

Good luck tonight! I am so shy when it comes to more than 3 people, so I totally understand your point.

Ty, my almost 9 year old, let me "rock" him the other night and he loved it. I pretended he was a baby and we just rocked and cool for us.

Tony Bennett in the CD player, I'll have to try that sometime! I love rocking babies to sleep! I still nurse my baby (9 1/2 mos.) before he goes to bed and the best part is after he's fallen asleep and his head is resting against me and he's so relaxed in my arms. Most nights I just sit there awhile longer, holding and rocking him.
