I'm a fan!

When Ruger was a baby he didn't really like car rides or going to sleep in his crib. I had purchased Carrie Underwood's first album and was listening to it in the car when I noticed that he had stopped screaming and shortly after that he'd fallen asleep. At first I was certain it was all about my timing, but then time after time he would just stop crying and listen to her. One time he was playing in the family room and she came on TV, he climbed into the laundry basket on the floor and just sat and watched until she was done singing. People never believed us when we said her music could calm him down--they'd be shocked to see that she was indeed our saving grace his first two years of he doesn't really care who's on the radio he's going to do what he wants, but occassionally he'll sing along.
For this reason I will always be a Carrie fan. I was going to purchase her new album, but was given strict instruction via text to just be patient. On Saturday Play On arrived in the mail with some seriously good treats. We spent the rest of the day in the kitchen cooking and dancing to "Undo It!"
Thanks Roni!

That is tooooooo cute! Does he already have a fixation on pretty blonde girls? What a cool surprise to get in the mail! I love Carrie too. She is hosting the CMAs this year!

Glad Carrie Underwood saved your sanity for a couple years! When he's chasing the pretty blondes later, you may rethink that, but we love her music too!

Too cute - love it! I'm glad that Carrie was such a life saver for a couple of years for you guys! Simon seems to have a thing for blonde country singers too - stops playing or running around when he hears certain songs come on so he can dance along.
