The other day a new friend (who is also a new mom) blessed me with a kind surprise: a mix CD featuring a number of children’s songs by a woman named Elizabeth Mitchell. I immediately popped it in the nursery CD player, where it has remained ever since. It’s pure sweetness set to music, and (more importantly) Will has been known to stop his crying and smile once I hit “play”.
You can listen to some of Ms. Mitchell’s music at her website, www.youaremyflower.org . If you click on “Flower”, “Sunshine” or “Little Bird”, you will have an option to listen to a few of the tracks (my favorites are “Little Bird, Little Bird” and “Ladybug Picnic”).
