Audrey's Take

Here is Audrey's take:



Journaling reads:

Duermase mi baby.Porque El Coo-Coo viene,Y te agarra para una manzana.(interpreted)Go to sleep my baby.Because the monster is coming,And he will take you for an apple.Silly? Yes.Soothing? Almost always.Scary? Most definitely, once you understand what the song is about.This song is a Spanish lullaby that my Grandma and Mom sang to us as babies. Now, Ising and have sung the lullaby to my kids. I always thought it was a song that was just in my family until I met my husband and he knew it too! We never thought much of it untilwe started singing it to our son. Then we realized the song itself was scary and it was themelody that was soothing.

such a sweet Lo! I love the buttons on the side. Funny how so many children's lullaby's are rather scary or morbid when you actually think about the words...

I love that you are telling the story behind the lullaby, but it is a little weird!
