Thank God for Kenny G!

23 Jan

It’s 1:00 a.m., and my precious baby girl Haley is screaming. I have already fed, changed and rocked her, but nothing is working. I am exhausted and quite frankly I want to cry right along with her. Erik sits up in bed and in his haze just looks at me like…PLEASE get that child to shut up already. It was in that moment that I had a BRILLIANT idea. An idea that has helped us for the past week now. MUSIC! She needs music.

I love my I-phone, I mean I really LOVE my phone. It has a Pandora app and it is this app that has allowed Erik and I to get more sleep than we were getting before. Because I listen to Pandora at work and leisurely around the house, I already had a variety of different “stations” in my settings. I went to my “Dave Matthews Band” station and clicked the play button. I laid the phone next to Haley and she stopped crying for a minute, but that was it. Okay, I have to admit, I was a little bummed that my child didn’t automatically share the same love for Dave Matthews as I did, but I have many years to change that, so it was on to the next channel I thought might work. I clicked the “Adele” channel, and to no avail, she cried even louder. With one eye open, I selected, “Create a New Station” and typed in the search option, KENNY G. I honestly have no idea what it was that made me think of Kenny G, but I am so thankful I did. Within seconds of hearing the sounds of his saxophone, she stopped crying, and not just for a minute or two, she was actually asleep and totally relaxed. I looked at Erik and we both just smiled, laid our heads down and slept for 4 hours straight, something we have not been able to do since the girls came home from the hospital.

It is amazing to me how even at 6-7 weeks old, people develop a need for music. Haley cannot sleep at night without her “Kenny G” station playing now. And she knows if it is NOT that station. I tried to put on sounds of the ocean and rain forest last night because I am a little over Kenny G, but she knew and was not having it. I really don’t care what it is, if it gets the child to sleep then it could be tribal dance music for all I care.

So, dear Mr. Kenny G…Thank you for making music my “temperamental… I don’t like to sleep but like to cry at night daughter” loves. You have helped this sleep deprived mom and dad get a few extra hours of shut-eye! AND that is priceless.
