Tonight my niece fell asleep on my chest while we watched Road to Avonlea together (well, OK, I was watching. She was lying on me while I was patting her back). It's the sweetest thing in the world to have such a precious little one sleeping in your arms. I love it. It was about time too. By the time she fell asleep it was around 11:30. Let's just hope it means she will sleep in a bit in the morning. My nephew was much easier to get to sleep. I have him a bath, read him some Froggy books, and put him in bed around 9. I haven't heard from him since.
Can I just say how much I love this show (Road to Avonlea)? Lois and Clark is the show I call my all time favorite, but a big part of that is because of the friendships I have made through the fandom. Road to Avonlea is the show that most takes me back to my childhood. In a way, it's like comfort food for me...especially any episode concerning Gus Pike and Felicity King. There is a certain reoccurring piece of music
from the show, Gus Pike's Theme,(by John Welsman and arranged from a traditional Irish fiddle tune called 'Ur Cnoc Cein Mhic Cainte' Gaelic for 'The Fresh Hills of Cein Mhic Cainte') that is the ultimate "chicken soup for the soul" for me.
