Here are some ideas for the smaller variety of ankle-biter. If you've lost the words for a lullaby, want yet more methods to get them to sleep/eat/stop crying then there's always something here to try. If you've seen something that should be in here, let us know by clicking here

Mocked by a mockingbird

Redbilled Hornbill
This is not a mockingbird...

I've been humming this for days and couldn't remember any of the words so I'm putting myself, and probably some of you, out of my misery...

Hush, little baby, don't say a word.
Mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird

And if that mockingbird won't sing,
Mama's gonna buy you a diamond ring

And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama's gonna buy you a looking glass

And if that looking glass gets broke,
Mama's gonna buy you a billy goat

And if that billy goat won't pull,
Mama's gonna buy you a cart and bull

And if that cart and bull turn over,
Mama's going to buy you a dog named Rover.

And if that dog named Rover won't bark,
Mama's going to buy you a horse and cart.

And if that horse and cart fall down,
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town.


Well, there's no particular reason for the baby to be here other than the fact that it's damn cute and for a good cause so get clicking and donate some money to a good cause. Point your cursor at baldy over there...
