Calvin has an Alexa Show 5 in his bedroom. In trying to help with the poop situation, about three months ago, I started telling Alexa, “Play The Beatles
He’s had two or three poop situations since then, but overall it has completely calmed him down. He goes to bed and just falls asleep listening to The Beatles.
I can’t scientifically provide an explanation, but there is something about their sound that defies logic. When I go into his living room, most of the time now he will be listening to The Beatles on YouTube. He can sing along in a mumbly way, because he doesn’t know the lyrics.
What’s the point? I don’t know, other than it’s one more connection that I’ve been able to make with him. As a dad, we can’t share football or baseball or computers. But knowing that I’ve been able to introduce a musical band to him that he loves . . . it’s heartwarming to know that I’ve been able to introduce him to something that he truly enjoys.
