"Yes, Jesus Loves Me!"

My parents came to spend the day with the kids last week so that John and I could have an anniversary date. It was very nice, and the first time we'd been out in a very long time. That night, while I was rocking Jack to sleep and singing his requisite couple of songs, he demanded for me to sing "Sigh-No". I didn't know what the heck that was supposed to be, but he sure did. He kept crying, "Sigh-No, sing Sigh-No!" I realized that this must be something my mom had sang to him when she put him down for a nap that afternoon, but I couldn't figure out what it could be. I distracted him with other songs, but the next couple of rockings he would continue to demand that I sing "Sigh-No". I thought and thought about what on earth she could have sang that he would be thinking of. Finally, it dawned on me that he was talking about "Jesus Loves Me". I started to sing it and he gave me a big smile and said, "Sigh-No!" and laid his head on my shoulder as I continued to sing..."Jesus loves me, this Sigh-No".

I'm worried about that lady in the cartoon over there. Is her arm broken in several places? Because she was playing frisbee in the living room?
