Inspire Me Monday--Baby Mine {Dumbo}

As some of you might know, I am going to meeting my second little boy before the end of this week. With my first son, I sang a lullaby--the same lullaby--every night to him from the day he was born (until recently, when he started asking me not to sing, little stinker).  I've decided to pick another special lullaby to sing to this little boy, and this is the song I've decided will be "his," so to speak.  That is, if I will ever be able to sing it to him without crying.  We'll see.

Probably the most heart wrenching moment in any Disney film, to me at least.  I always teared up watching it before I became a mom.  I understand it a lot more now.  Wow.  If this doesn't move you, I don't know what will.

I never liked watching Dumbo before I had kids, and now I can't do it either, but for totally different reasons. That song is a great pick. Can't wait to meet the little guy!

I love that song. I haven't been asked not to sing anymore now I just get requests for the "Thomas songs" (theme song for Thomas and Friends) or the Dinosaur song (??) So most nights we're left making something random up.
