Baby of Mine

No matter how I prepare myself, the scene in Dumbo where the baby elephant goes to visit his mommy in the cage and she swings him on her trunk makes me sob! Especially with the lullaby she sings to him. Here it is for all you softies...

Baby mine, don't you cry
Baby mine, dry your eyes
Rest your head close to my heart
Never to part, baby of mine

Little one when you play
Don't you mind what you say
Let those eyes sparkle and shine
Never a tear, baby of mine

If they knew sweet little you
They'd end up loving you too
All those same people who scold you
What they'd give just for
The right to hold you

From your head to your toes
You're not much, goodness knows
But you're so precious to me
Cute as can be, baby of mine

I don't think I've seen Dumbo since I was a kid. I bet Malachi would like it though, so I should check it out.

I hope everything is going well - I hope you're getting some sleep.
