One of my favorite lullabies to sing to the kids is Sesame Street's I Don't Want to Live on the Moon. I checked out a music book at the library with this song in it and sat down to play it on the piano a few days ago. Ellie came and sat beside me on the piano bench as I played. "Mom?", she said with real concern, "If you lived on the moon, I would miss you so much!" Yesterday, her lunchtime prayer included this "Thank thee that we can have our family stay here and not live on the moon."
From Ellie -- "Thank thee that we can have our family stay here and not live on the moon. I'm glad that mommy will pretend with me for a little bit. I'm grateful to live with my family. I'm glad that I can eat food when I'm hungry."
