Think Of Me

Last night I took a sleepy Midge to his crib and prepared to have to coax him into sleeping.  He gave me a snuggle then looked me right in the eye and said "Tinka me."  I wasn't sure what he was trying to say at first but he continued to look me in the eye and say "Tinka me" so I knew he was trying to tell me something.  Finally it occured to me that he was saying "Think of Me" which is a song I have been singing to the kids at bedtime for years.  He had heard me sing it to Nee Nee and Bear every night and now he was ready to have his turn.  I started singing and he immediately laid down, snuggled his stuffed animal and closed his eyes. 
The song if from the cartoon Veggie Tales and the lyrics go:
"Think of me everyday.
Hold tight to what I say,
And I'll be close to you,
Even from far away.
Know that wherever you are,
it is never too far.
If you think of me,
I'll be with you."
