All The Pretty Little Ponies

Tonight I got to snuggle a little friend to sleep. One of the songs my mom would sing to me I called the pony song. My mom would sit in my dads office chair that rocked. Each time it would rock back it would click. It was comforting to be in my moms arms listening to her sing the pony song and the click of that chair. I used to fight to stay awake so that we could snuggle together longer.  I can't wait to rock and sing the pony song every night.

Just an aside in looking up the song it traditionally was horses and not ponies (I'm not changing that) but also learned it was an African slave song. The baby lamb is the slaves baby that she was unable to care for as she had to care for the white babies.
