That glorious song of old…

Last night Ethan interrupted my Amazing Race Asia program by leading me to our room. This meant he was ready to sleep. We had a very tiring day yesterday, did some Christmas shopping and Ethan fell asleep in the car on the way home too. That was why I was actually surprised that he already felt sleepy at about 9:30p.m.

Anyway, I took him into the room and let him roll around on the bed for a while. Then I started serenading him with some Christmas carols. He in turn began *talking* to me. I paused several times to talk back to him and I even asked him what his favorite carol was. He would smile and clap appreciatively after I had finished singing each song, but he was still wide awake. I sang every song from “White Christmas” to “Jingle Bells”, from “Silent Night” to “Away in a Manger” but nothing could make him yawn. As I was running out of carols to sing, I suddenly remembered I had yet to sing one of LB’s favorites: It Came Upon a Midnight Clear. So I sang it… As soon as I finished the first verse, Ethan’s eyes began to look drowsy. I continued singing and he rolled on one side, close his eyes and eventually fell asleep! I wonder if this same song will work yet again tonight… only one way to find out… :)

I was watching the Amazing Race Asia last night too!

Hmm, maybe Ethan heard the word ‘midnight’ in the song, so he thought it was later than it was and that’s why he fell asleep! Lawls.

Joyce says: That’s a theory…hehe…but the next day, it was Silent Night that did the trick instead!

I only know the lyrics to the first couple of lines. Gotta google it and try it on Bryan!!

Joyce says: Did it work? :)

Awww..these classics always does the trick! ;-)

Joyce says: Yup, tell me about it…it was another classic that did it the next night!

So, did he fall asleep again when u tried the second time?

Joyce says: The second night, it was Silent Night that put him out like a light…

so, how’s the result now? Did the song really work for second night?

Joyce says: No, it was a different song that did the trick the second night.
