Don't worry about a thing

Lately, Max likes to have a dance party in his room before he goes to sleep. It's one part fun, one part bedtime procrastination. We all join in, and he likes to ask if the baby is dancing, too. "Yes!" I tell him.

Dave is the DJ, and Rhapsody is our beat. We play anything Katy Perry, "Sugar" by Maroon 5 (which Max loves), "It's Raining Sunshine" (a longtime fave) and that world-famous song "Fire truck! Fire truck! I want to ride on a fire truck!"

The other night, Max and Dave surprised me. Dave put on Bob Marley's "Three Little Birds" and he and Max sang most of it.

Hearing Max sing "Don't worry about a thing, cause every little thing gonna be alright!" is better than any therapy session I could ever do over latent anxiety about him.

Once again, I will say: Oh, if those doomsaying doctors in the NICU could see him now.


  1. Warms my heart! Therapy for the soul. Hope you are all doing well.

  2. And if you keep talking to me through this darkness, through this night, I'll be alright...

  3. Does he take requests? How about

    1. Oooh, that would be a good one! I'll check. Usually, however, he takes requests only related to fire truck songs. :)

  4. Max, great singing! :)
    Ellen, thanks for the ray of sunshine this morning. I hope you & the baby are doing well!

  5. His smile is contagious! We love to jam out to that song, too. :) I'm going to put it on right now...

  6. This sounds like So. Much. FUN!!!! "Sugar" is one of my favorite songs, I'd love to sing it with you Fireman Max!

  7. Oh that is so amazing post!! I am so addicted to read your posts. Max is truly a sweet kid. One of my friends also has a special kid. She just celebrated her 10th birthday at the party space rentals in Brooklyn. Her daughter was so happy to have a frozen party.


Thanks for sharing!
