The Sandman strikes again!!

Connor is teething again and suddenly its difficult to get him to sleep through the night.

Sandman Records is to the rescue again with their amazing CD series Dream With Me Tonight. Anything to keep my little man sleeping a little longer is heaven. If you are not familuar with other CDs from Sandman Records see my review of Lanny Sherwin's work here.

Dream With Me Tonight features a collection of soothing, lullaby's sung by Melodie Crittenden. Though this may sound a bit odd, one of my big deciding factors on if we really love a bedtime CD or not is how easy the songs are to sing. Ever since Connor was born I've been singing along to his bedtime CDs (or even singing them when the mp3 player or CD player is not handy) and though I really love some of his CDs the effect is just not the same if I can't sing them myself to him. Our favorite song on the CD is "Too many animals", which reminds me a lot of my own bed as a child. I couldn't sleep without every single stuffed animal I owned wasn't on my bed. It ended up being a sea of plush with a tiny person in the middle, and you know what.. it was wonderful.

Dream With Me Tonight - Volume 2 A Father's Lullabies, is our favorite CD of the set. Performed by Gene Miller you can feel the love for his children oozing out in each song. The perfect CD for new Dad's or a Dad with a herd! You, Me, and the Moon speaks volumes of how, I think all dads, feel when they first hold their new little munchkins. Though I will be pretty frank to say, unlike what dad's may seem to think, us mom's don't have a clue most of the time what they are doing either. (At least this one doesn't, I just make it up as I go!)

I warn you now, just like the rest of the Sandman Records titles you will find yourself humming them, everywhere.

Dream With Me Tonight and Dream With Me Tonight - Volume 2 are available directly from Sandman Records, as well as Amazon and Barnes and Noble!

Sandman Records has given us a brand new sparkley copies of both Dream With Me Tonight and Dream With Me Tonight - Volume 2 to give away to one of our readers!

My favorite cd is Dream With Me Tonight, Vol. 2: A Father's Lullabies. I love the simple, yet beautiful lyrics. You, me and the moon is my favorite. For some reason, my husband and I have a thing for the moon and babies! emcdonald@interiority.org

We were given the "Dream With Me Tonight" CD as a gift when my oldest daughter was about 6 months old and she loved it! Our favorite song was "Stars Are Wishes" sung by Melodie Crittenden. We have lost our copy of this cd and we now have a three month old baby girl. We would be so excited to win these cds. Thank you so much!

Sue Wintz said...

My favorite is Angels from the Dream With Me Tonight CD. I would love this for our daughter's namesake, who is 4. She was born 9 months and 1 week after our daughter was killed by a speeding red light runner 3 months short of her 18th birthday. Little Sarah is growing up learning all about Angel Sarah, who was a preschool teacher and a vocalist. She would love this.
