Mom's want Lullabies

I put some kids video songs and some goofy ones on my IPhone and Nahima, the 3 year old, likes to listen to them in the car.   Problem is she can listen to them over and over and was driving her mom and I crazy.  I went looking for some that were a little calmer and just to give us some variety. I ran across a bunch on YouTube that are nursery rhymes. Some you recognize from the English equivalent and some not.

Everyone around here has smart phones* so after figuring out what format* the phone used to play video I put a few on Nahima's mom's phone. Now the neighbor mom's are hearing these and they have helped a few babies fall asleep. I have two video requests pending when they bring the phones over and may get more. Lots of babies in the neighborhood.

*smart phones -- They don't have Internet because they can't afford it .... but the phones have video and still camera, play video and music, have a radio and TV reception ... and are cheap.

*format -- My IPhone plays .MPG,  MPG4, etc.   Their phones need .AVI for the video or all they get is audio.   I use YTD Video Downloader to convert to many different formats.  YTD also downloads the videos.


The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
