Marie just would not calm down this evening.
I was trying to get supper ready, and I had this crying cling-on attached to me, demanding my full attention, and yet not happy with anything I offered her.
At times like this, you have to pull out the big guns.
These are old videos that my kids have watched for quite some time, and yet still manage to have that mystical, magical quality to them that calm the vilest of tempers.
At the first sound of this one ALL my kids came running into the office, and were dancing around with joyful abandon.
With this one, Marie was bouncing on my lap with utter joy.
And this one kept them quiet while I quickly put supper on the table.
Enjoy... and wonder what sort of family we have around here...
