Way to work your birthday in there, Ze.
Actually, I mean OUR birthday - which is probably why I caught that.
With my vision.

Hi =) I just wanted to find you to say thanks for your Hey song.
My son just turned 3, he's a pretty quiet type. He hates music, always tells me to shhh when I sing. Doesn't like songs, music, dancing.
But we were in the car the other day, taking a friend of mine to pick up keys to her new apartment. While she signed for them, her 1yr old waited in the car with us. She cried her head off, really roaring. The whole time. Didn't stop for three minutes straight, and then my boy started singing to her.
He was singing a song I used to sing to him when he'd hurt himself and would cry and there wasn't really anything I could do to make him better. Back before he knew words like Shhh and how to make me stop singing.
And he sang her the Hey song. "Hey. You ok, baby avril. You be fine, just breathe". It was pitchy, and the rhythm was unusual, but it was him singing for the first time ever.
And you know what? That baby girl stopped crying after he sang it a few times and looked at him. "You ok, baby Avril. Hey, you ok".
Made me tear up. So thanks for making that song, and for putting it out for people to hear it, so that one day way along the line I could sing it to my baby, who'd remember it as a boy and share it with a little girl who just needed to know that everything was ok, just breathe.
