I think some people are confused about crying because something makes you sad, and crying because something touches your soul. You can see this song doesn't upset the child she is touched by it.

Way to go Ellen and thank goodness you can tell the difference. This seems like a loving wonderful family and I am glad such an emotional child will be in such a caring home.

Dear Helen,

Thanks for inviting guests from Canada, it makes it so special to us, canadian viewers. After watching this video, and saying your name out loud, it came out as "Helen The Generous"... And to me, you are a very Generous person. The world needs people like you to make it a better one, one with good news and lots of laughing!

Again thank you and as we day it it french : longue vie à votre émission ! (May your show last a very long time)

There are inspirational words that read as follows: We must unlearn all that we have been programmed to believe from birth. That software no longer serves you if you want to live in a world where all things are possible. - Jacqueline E. Purcell - I think this little child very innocently expressed her true emotions. She has the freedom of expression, unhindered by words, like awe, don't cry. or whatever we say to inhibit, control or mold our child's behaviour. Perhaps that particular song, the tone, and maybe not so much the lyrics had a very personal connection to this baby. I do not feel at all that the mom has done anything harmful, hurtful or otherwise cruel, as some may say. What a beautiful voice, lovely and content little girl and by the way....I live about an hour north of where this family live and I am so impressed to see that you, Ellen, jumped on interviewing this beautiful family from the far north of Ontario, on your show. Thank you for the amazing and unexpected gift you have offered this family by way of a trip .... a week away from the cold. You're the best! From another fellow northerner...Cochrane, On

I said this when I first saw the video of the baby crying while her mom sang and I still feel the same way. I think it is cruel of this mother to sing a song that she knows is going to upset her baby and make her cry. But to video and post and now go on Ellen she has had her 5 minutes of fame be done with it. IT'S MEAN!

My son did this too. Babies get scared from voice variation. Its an emotional response, not from the song lyrics, but because babies cry when they get nervous. Baby thinks, "This is my mommy, *smle*..." then get frightened "why does her voice hit that note? And why is she doing that" then when singing stops, smile and think "Ohh thank goodness you were beginning to scare me, glad my mom is normal again," then singing starts and babies response again teary eyed sadness... "What? Im confused, Why are you hitting that note" Many babies do this. Lucky for this mom she recorded it and added in "Oh are you getting emotional from the song lyrics?" She knows the baby is not. But good for them! If only I would have recorded my baby when I was putting him through emotional confusion lol.

This little girl has such an old soul. I've watched her video a dozen times and it truly touches my heart each and every time. She is so precious. Nice to see that you two got a beautiful holiday from Ellen. Enjoy!!! :)
