This is a song I heard as a teen, and I instantly knew this was exactly the sort of parent I don't want to be. Lots of Clawfinger songs are about being the sort of person I do want to be, but for some reason, I find this song the most encouraging.

Because the last song and this are completely different, because I have to double up one more time in order to fit all the songs in before I go away, and because I forgot to whine about how I didn't get enough sleep last night - woke up in the middle of the night (at the same time as Judith did, she came in for a cuddle briefly) and had to go outside for a bit before I eventually managed to get back to sleep.

This is a folk song which I played on the euph when I was wee, only to learn that my great-grandfather had sung it to my Grandma when she was little, so she really loved it, and I've sung it to my own children a ton as well. It was written by Irish poet Thomas 'Anacreon' Moore for his wife after she had smallpox and was refusing to let anyone see her as she felt too ugly; apparently it worked, and she recovered her confidence.
