So last night Nick and I were laying around watching TV and I was reading my pregnancy journal. It has daily info on the baby, on me, and recently has included parenting tips. The tip for last night was to start a bedtime routine early with the baby. To rock the baby a specific way only at bedtime, sing the same bedtime song, read the same story, bla bla bla. Routines are good. I thought it was interesting, so I read it out loud to Nick. He thought about it for a minute, then informs me that the bedtime song will be sang to the tune of Thriller. Yes. Thriller by Michael Jackson. He then demonstrated singing the bedtime song while "rocking" the baby to sleep with the Thriller dance. This image has cracked me up all day. He is going to be an awesome dad.

Now that I think about it, the book said the bedtime routine will help other people get the baby to sleep when we are away. I really look forward watching Nick teach the babysitters the Thriller bedtime song and dance...


  1. I can't tell you how much that sounds like my own husband!

  2. Oh my - you shouldn't be allowed to write things like that which I will read whilst eating my breakfast - I could have choked it made me laugh too much!! I love it - can't wait to hear all about how the bedtime routine pans out!!

  3. Looks like this will be the fun house to babysit at.

  4. Tell Nick I am so impressed with him, as always!!! :D
