Each night my husband or I sing the Bean a lullaby as we put her to sleep. I usually sing that morbid ditty, "Clementine." It's been the Bean's song for the last few months; for whatever reason, she loves the tune.

Then 4th of July rolled around and we went out to see the community fireworks. My husband tried to sing "The Star-spangled Banner" (although he really shouldn't). The Bean-girl seems delighted by the song. And tonight, she asks me to sing "Oh, say can you see--" for bedtime. I sang the first stanza twice, then begged off on a third try, explaining that that song is too hard for mommy.

Ugh, what has my husband done now? I'm musically challenged as is!
