If you are wondering what on earth that is, let me tell you that it was the lullaby that the OH composed for Bubboo, while I was pregnant with her. Yes, you read that right! 🙂
Someone told us that pregnant women should keep listening to a particular song, and that the baby inside the tummy would hear it frequently and learn to get comforted by it. Apparently, after the baby is born, whenever he/she is cranky, he/she would immediately be soothed when the same song is played. I didn’t listen to much of music while I was pregnant (somehow it never happened frequently!). The OH decided to make up his own song for Bubboo-inside-my-tummy and would sing it softly to her every once in a while. I would tell him to remember the exact crazy lyrics that he was making up, because he would have to sing the very same thing after the baby’s birth, whenever he/she would get irritable. So, we kept practising at it, and both of us still remember the lyrics. 😀
Does Bubboo remember any of this? I’m not sure. When she was a very tiny baby and would cry with colic or teething pains, the OH would croon his home-made lyrics to her, and she would give him a royally ‘Blah!’ look. We stopped trying after a bit.
This reminds me – I should ask the OH to sing the ‘lullaby’ again to Bubboo now, in his signature tune, and see how Madame reacts. Won’t that be fun, now?
