Unlikely Lullaby

Right after Beckett was born, I would draw a blank at bedtime when thinking of lullabies to sing to him. 
It was like stage I was in the spotlight. 
Strange, but for a while we made up songs to sing to him, sometimes we still do. 
Eventually, the songs flooded my brain....even ones that weren't necessarily lullabies. 
One of his favorites I sing every night is My Little Buttercup from 
the movie The Three Amigos.
NOT a lullaby, but what cracks me up is that he sings along and knows every word now.  
Happy Wednesday! 


  1. LOL! I love that movie and song!!! I used to sing it to my dog when I was little but chance "buttercup" to "muffincup". LOL!!! I heart Steve Martin.

  2. I have never seen this movie. But I think its cute you made a lullaby outta this song ;) We make up songs too. We have been singing the same ones to W who is 6 and still loves it. But, I can't carry a tune--hahaha
