I Dont Really Love My Baby – But I Do Want Him or Her to Be Kind

A close up of a hand

A song that has consistently been on my top 10 list when it comes to “take good care of my baby” songs is “Take Me Easy”. I’m a sucker for this tune, and it never fails to put me in a happy place. It’s a beautiful, albeit sad, love story about two lovers who are unable to remain single, even though they desperately want to. The lyrics speak of loneliness and the beauty of the countryside. The instrumentals and the harmonies are simple, yet have a powerful effect.

Throughout the years, “Take Me Easy” has found several versions where the lyrics are changed to deal with the different time zones and geographic locations of the two lovers, making them somewhat humorous and somewhat romantically. The original version is one of the most famous songs about two lovers who are unable to remain single because they both love each other. The title, Take Me Easy, seems to suggest the way that the relationship should be, with the clouds surrounding the sky being just as kind as you can be to someone. The words suggest an imaginary place where they could be just like they are in their real lives: happy, affectionate, and secure. The lyrics also indicate that the narrator of the song is able to take good care of his or her baby, making sure that it always is in a good condition despite the different places in which it might be.

Take Good Care Of My Baby

I’m very familiar with the original song, and “Take Me Easy” is the only song that my five-year-old daughter sings along with me on our CDs. “Take Me Easy” became incredibly popular in the 1960s, when the Beach Boys were in the midst of their golden era. The song was a huge hit, especially in America and Europe, and the Beach Boys was huge. The Kirshner family, which includes my husband, owns and maintains a home-based business out of the apartment that they converted into a recording studio, and this is where “Take Me Easy” was born.

The lyrics to “Take Me Easy” are really about what you experience during your time as a parent, and how it can help you take care of your baby better in real life. For me, I’ve realized that there’s a lot of value in knowing the right amount of patience to be able to fully enjoy the things that children are naturally attracted to, like music, colors, and animals. And so it made me think about how patients can take care of my baby much better than any other means.

In fact, I think that the song has become even more relevant now than it ever was before. Babies don’t seem to care whether or not you love them. Sure, you may try to take good care of your baby by showering him or her with lots of love and attention, but after a while, all that becomes a distant dream that seems to slip away. At first, the child doesn’t understand why you’re not sharing the love that he or she so dearly craves. But after some time, your baby will come to understand. He or she will start to see how much love really hurts.

A Much Ado

It’s all about perspective in this song, and I think that perspective is something that can help parents all over to really take good care of their baby in the ways that their parents did. The chorus goes, “Don’t take good care of my baby.” And what the words do indicate is that parents don’t have to wait for their child to grow up and reach adulthood before they start to truly take good care of him or her. And in the same way, I think that perspective is also something that can help children grow up and develop attitudes towards the things that they don’t like as much as they like. Like, for instance, if your child starts to express a dislike towards music, you don’t have to sit there and scream at him or her about the educational advantages of music as he or she listens to it.

Instead, what you can do is to tell your child one day that you don’t really love him or her, but rather that you want them to try their best and do whatever they can to be just as kind as they can be. This doesn’t mean that you’re going to give your child permission to cry. Rather, what you are trying to say is that, in your experience, children who are kind do much better than those who are not. You might also suggest that your child go home and cry in her room if she does get upset, but then try to encourage her to express her feelings in other ways.

Bottom Line

As you can see, there really are some things you can do to help your child develop kindness in a very healthy way. There is nothing wrong with being kind and having a healthy sense of caring. It’s unfortunate, though, that many parents only think about this when their children are very young. If you really want to take good care of your baby, you should take the time now to get your child enrolled in a preschool, where kindness will be taught. There is no better time to instill this precious trait than right before your child starts kindergarten!
