The phone is ringing so I say "HELLO?"

While in Maine, Aspen got to play with a brand-new toy that her grandparents bought special just for her.

It has a laptop, a singing book, a piano and of course, a phone. I fell hard for one of the songs the phone sings, and I took the time to learn it. Which meant I pushed the button a million times so I could sing along until I knew all the words.

It's a 14 second song, but dude, it's fun!

Anyway, now that we're back home and dealing with not having grandparents to play with us, Aspen has been fussy. It's like their house was magic and she hardly cried AT ALL.

Well, in a pinch I started singing that stupid telephone song to her. It works like a charm to calm her cries. Like, at 3am I finally gave in to her crying (she'd been crying every half hour on the hour for ages) and went in to soothe her. I tried all sorts of tricks, and eventually started singing the telephone song while changing her diaper.

She stopped screaming immediately.


Do your kids have a magic song?


  1. That looks like a fun toy! Glad you have a magic song to soothe her. Bailee doesnt have one just Violet her dog that sings her lullabies to put her to sleep. We have learned now whenever we go on trips & overnighters the dog has to come with us!

  2. Hahaha, the telephone song! When I saw your title, I actually sang it in my head. lol We have the same toy for my 10-month old and my 3-year old LOVES that song and plays it OVER and OVER and OVER again! =)

  3. my daughter has that same toy! lol im going to learn this song so i can teach it to her she loves to play telephone

  4. It might be my favorite song at the moment......Olivia's Mom

  5. Dear author. I live in a foreign country and I have English as a second language. I got this toy through amazon and all of us LOVE this toy. I understood the first part of the song. Can you type the rest of the song since "Good bye, ..... so I say bye bye". I didn´t catch this part.

    Thank you so much.
    I sing this song not only changing the diaper, I sing that at work and everywhere, Haha

  6. If I remember correctly, at the end of the song they sing:

    "Goodbye, when I'm done talking then I say bye, bye!"

    Or it's:

    "Goodbye! I'm done talking so I say bye, bye!"

    Hope that helps you enjoy the song as it plays in your head over and over and over and over.

  7. Thank you so much.

    If you see me, you will think that I'm insane. I'm a very beautiful girl 31 years old father. Lol.

    I'm trying to learn other songs from the toy but, I couldn't understand all of them and my wife doesn´t speak english very well.
