When Lucas gets tired...

...he goes crawling to his bisabuelita Lolita, and stands himself up at her feet. She scoops him up and sings him a mix of every lullaby she has ever known. There's Santa Catalina who burns her hand in the kitchen, the hen who tucks her chicks under her wings, Pipon who takes his cane when he goes for a walk, the cat who gave birth to five little goats and one flea, the boy who lost his apple, and of course "2x2 is four, 4x2 is eight" and etc. all the way up to 32 (or at least that's as far as I sing it. Maybe she goes higher?) He gazes up at her with his heavy eyelids and rests his little head, and then he drifts off. So my dad tried his hand at lullabies the other day. Do you want to see?

Oh dear! We need to help Grandpa with the lullabies before Lucas cries. He looked like he did not quite know what to think. Very funny.

Poor Lucas - he just realized that he has to grow old before Grandpa will quit singing. ;) Love the look on his face!

Melissa and I laughed so hard at his oh-so-patient expression of ...what would I call it..."long-suffering" maybe?. Anyway, kudos to Grandpa for the true effort!

Too funny! Poor little guy was so confused! Hopefully he didn't have nightmares after that :)
