Adele please!

These are the words I often hear coming from the back seat when Primo is in the car with me.

Primo loves Adele.

The first Christmas that Primo spent with us I received 2 Adele cds from my girls. I love Adele and I would play them often during the days that I spent at home with Primo, who was just a few months old at the time.

During his first year whenever the long car rides to and from Primo's family visits got to be too much for him, he would wail sadly in the back of the car. All I had to do was pop in an Adele cd and he would calm himself and stop crying.

After Primo's first year with us I played less Adele and he no longer needed music to help calm himself in the car.

A few months ago Adele came on the radio on our drive to preschool:

Primo: I yike dis song
Me: Me too Primo, Adele sings this song

Well, from then on he has been asking for Adele songs almost every time we get in the car. It is completely adorable to hear "Adele please!" coming from the back of the car.

  1. Hello,
    I binge-read (is that a thing? It is a thing now...) through all of your posts in the past two days. Husband and I have made the decision to foster/adopt and I find I need an anonymous space to sort through my thoughts.For a variety or reasons we haven't started ourt training yet, and your blog was a wonderful window for me to see what we might be letting ouselves and our two small kids in for, even though we are in a different geographical area.
    Thank you so much for writing!
