Inspired by A Cup of Jo’s recent post, I decided to put together a playlist of songs to sing to Teddy, specifically more mainstream songs that aren’t typical lullabies.  These days, I’m obsessed with podcasts and always have one on in the background so music has kind of fallen to the wayside.  I definitely want Teddy to have an appreciation for music as he grows up and I don’t think our botched version of The Wheels on the Bus is really going to foster that.  This playlist is full of songs I’ve always loved, songs with sweet lyrics that will make me tear up if I attempt to sing them to him and others that are just pretty songs to sing little ones to sleep.  Now if only I could figure out a way to not be tone deaf…
