How to use ho-hum in a sentence?

  1. Joan Hart:

    When I hold them, sometimes I hum or sing — tunes like ‘You Are My Sunshine’ or Frank Sinatra’s love songs — or I talk to them. I tell them, ‘You have to eat and sleep so you can get big and strong.’ I talk to them about their future. I say, ‘You think a pacifier’s good? Wait till you see ice cream or lollipops or pancakes,’.
