Bedtime Blushing

I was just cuddling Cami & Graham during the last stage of the "before bed" routine. I usually sing to them, in addition to stories. Tonight Cami helped me sing "Stay Awake" from Mary Poppins. It was one of the songs she performed this morning at her school's "Showtime Assembly," and I had noticed that she was fighting a yawn as she sang. It worked tonight to calm her down & induced a yawn or two as she relaxed.

She asked for "one more song" as I was trying to extract myself, so I started to sing "Kiss the Girl" from The Little Mermaid. It's been at least a year since she last saw the movie & I guess she didn't recognize the tune because she asked the title. I told her & sang a few more bars.

She interrupted with an arm covering her eyes, "Don't sing that, Mom. It's embarrassing me."
