Almost every night at bedtime, Abby asks me to sing her "The Cottage Song", as she calls it, due to her favorite line in the song being - "You and I will settle down in a cottage built for twoooo..."
In fear of dating myself a bit here, the actual song is none other than "My Little Buttercup" from the classic 80's comedy The Three Amigos starring Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, and Martin Short.
Hilarious. One of those movies that you can watch 25 times and still laugh out loud...and pretty much quote every line word for word.
I used to sing "My Little Buttercup" to Abby when she was still curled up in my belly but changed the wording to "My little Abigail"...and it just stuck. I'm pretty sure she thinks I made up the song especially for her. The lyrics do fit her perfectly - "My little Abigail has the sweetest smile..."
If she only knew... :)
