Ever since becoming pregnant, I have been unable to hear certain songs without getting emotional and tearing up. Then, when our son came, the list got even longer. So for the next few Sunday Songbird posts, I’ve decided to share with you my playlist of songs I can no longer listen to without crying – nice, right?? But to me, they sum up all the great and wonderful parts about being a mom, and a parent, and I think that’s something that a lot of you can also relate to!
Today’s installments are two of the first songs we ever played for Jensen. “93 Million Miles” by Jason Mraz was our go-to when he was crying and we didn’t know what to do to make it better. I would pull it up on youtube and sing along quietly in his ear – it always worked, and he always stopped crying.
“Beautiful Boy” by John Lennon is a much beloved classic, all around the world. It was the first song we played for our son when he came home, because to us, he is perfect, and he will always be our beautiful boy.

‘Oh, my my how beautiful, oh my beautiful mother,
She told me, “Son, in life you’re gonna go far, and if you do it right you’ll love where you are –
Just know, that wherever you go, you can always come home”
240 thousand miles from the moon, we’ve come a long way to belong here, to share this view of the night,
a glorious night, over the horizon is another bright sky,
Oh, my my how beautiful, oh my irrefutable father,
He told me, “Son, sometimes it may seem dark, but the absence of the light is a necessary part.
Just know, you’re never alone, you can always come back home…”‘
93 Million Miles – Jason Mraz*
“I can hardly wait to see you to come of age,
But I guess we’ll both just have to be patient,
Yes it’s a long way to go,
But in the meantime,
Before you cross the street take my hand,
Life is just what happens to you,
While your busy making other plans,
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy – John Lennon*
