Pooh Corner 5 - Submitted July 1, 2006
I recently purchased the 1994 CD "Return to Pooh Corner", and it's just WONDERFUL. Some of the songs give me chills, some give me a lump in my throat, and some just plain make me cry. I have two children, and I think that if I'd heard this music prior to being a parent, I might not have had the same emotional reaction to it, but as a parent the music is SO touching. Thank you for this beautiful music which has really touched me. - Jeane
After I had my son, who is now three and a half years old, I began playing it in the car while we were driving. It amazed me how quickly it calmed him down if he was upset and even sometimes put him to sleep! I recently received a copy of "More Songs from Pooh Corner" and play that as well for my 20 month old daughter. It has the same effect. The gentle love in your voice as you sing calms them so quickly (and me). I listen to the songs you have chosen (which are a perfect reflection of a parent's love for their child), and they make me cry sometimes when I think of how much I love my children. Thank you so much for recording these CD's; they will forever give me beautiful memories of those precious tender years as my children grow older - which as you know happens in the blink of an eye. - Gina
We were so thrilled when you released More Songs From Pooh Corner. We've added it to our bedtime music and also in the car. You should be so proud of what you've created musically and you should be even more proud of the relationships you seem to have with your children. I am trying my best to cherish each and every day with my 7 month old son. Some of our most precious moments are when we're listening to your music. I want him to share my love of music and I think we're well on our way. Thank you for these wonderful gifts.
I am 35 and have enjoyed listening to your music over the years. When I picked up "More Songs From Pooh Corner" I had no idea the impact it would have on me.
Yesterday my second child was born, a daughter, my son is 6. I can't listen to the entire CD without starting to sniffle. I am writing this to let you share a moment with my son, he wandered into my work area, as I was listening to the CD, (Always, In All Ways) and wanted to be reassured that his new little sister was not going to take over his spot in my heart. So I started singing along with you, to him.. although by the time I was finished I was in tears, he looked up at me, and in his sweetest 6yr old voice said.. "thanks dad, I knew you'd make me feel better" so from him, and me, thank you for the words to say what he needed to hear, and what I needed to say right then, right there.
