Ha!

She has more than bats of her belfry. Perhaps some mothballs and insecticide is in order, yes?

Addie, Anna speaks Anna/Romanian/English/incoherent. Ha!

I did not know Anna could sing! Anna is up for of the jet lag and is having trouble of sleeping of America's time. Joyce is up with her so very late! I heard a noise of my daughter's voice and went of the computer room of which the door was closed, and Joyce was singing and Anna was singing with her!

Joyce hushed me, for the computer room has of a very soft rug and Joyce had taken one of her very nice soft blankets and put Anna wrapped of this and upon this rug. They sang! Anna did follow, she did mimic of Joyce, and Anna became sleepy of a bit.

I have never seen of this! Then Joyce put away of her guitar and picked up Anna. She said, "poor little girl, so many changes, ssssssss."

She put Anna in her bed still of the wrapped blanket and Anna is so very asleep!

I asked her of this. Joyce said she sang of her daughter to of sleep. Is this an American custom of children?

We did sing before sleep but not of sleep. Americans do of this?

Oh yes, singing children to sleep is done. We sang my brother to sleep almost every night. He still gets drowsy to "You Are My Sunshine".

Oh indeed. There is in the operetta Hansel and Gretel by Engle Humperdinck a prayer song that the children sing as night falls. It is called The Evening Prayer. When all five of my children were starting to cut their teeth, and became fussy, I sang or just hummed this lullaby to them while rocking them in my arms. I always had a rocking chair when my children were babies. Singing a lullaby and a rocking chair works like a charm when used together.

There is a saying, "Music doth calms the savage beast." Sometimes the savage beast is sleep that just wants to elude us. I will often put soft music on and turn off the TV when I can't sleep.

+1! It's understandable if you're not comfortable with posting a full on pic of your sweet Anna, but gosh....even a semi far away shot of the fam playing in Joyce's beautiful yard would be awesome. Carl must be so happy to be back in America, even if it's for a short while.

I'll add my Please! Please! to Kayelle's and Cheryl's request. Just think of how nice it would be for all of us to see the happy little family playing off in the yard. You can even take the photo out-of-focus, CCL, or have me come and take it. I'm really good at taking fuzzy pictures. I must delete more than I take on my phone.
