It was Monday afternoon, and I’d been having a Monday like nobody’s business. My son was too. I was busy, he was testy, and it felt like a week had passed in a day. I checked my mail before heading on a long trek of errands and found a Dream Baby CD. “Oh, thank you!” I told Mr. Mailbox. (People think he’s a square, but really he’s just a big softie.)
Lullaby music it may be, but it went right in the car CD player. It was a very soothing trip to the grocery store as we glided through traffic. I think I even smiled at a person driving while using a cell phone. And my son? Quiet, content, humming. True story.
Merry Miller is the harpist and creator of this truly unique and calming CD. Dream Baby is filled with soothing harp music which actually lowers the level of the stress hormone cortisol while raising levels of melatonin. It’s also great for anyone suffering from anxiety, both young and old. The song list includes children’s tunes like Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, Puff the Magic Dragon, and my favorite, Itsy Bitsy Spider. (We sang this one in the car–it’s a special song I sing with my son.) In addition to the harp music is lovely subtle ambiance like crickets, raindrops, or laughing children.
If you’ve got a little one at home who just won’t doze off, I’ve got an extra Dream Baby CD for one of you ($12.00 retail). With so much summer activity and longer daylight hours, this is just the thing to wind events down at the end of the day.
