Sunday Singing

Tonight, as we were driving back from church, the kids were a bit fussy. We started singing songs to try to placate their tired little souls, and among our favorites was 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star'. After a few songs, the piteous cries had subsided and quiet reigned yet again. Then, in the peace of our night time ride, we hear 'tinkle, tinkle hmm-mmm star...der you are. upabove so high...diamond in da sky, tinkle, tinkle, star...you are...star....diamond sky...you are...' and so on. Then, a bit of silence, and clap, clap, clap. Thomas had sang the song, was all done, and since Mommy and Daddy weren't on the up and up, he let us know he was done. He did, of course, receive applause all around.

I have heard him sing snatches of songs, but this was the first time he 'went all the way through' and is was such a sweet little voice. Joshua and I sat in the front grinning like crazy people at yet another one of our son's accomplishments. I hope I have the same excitement and joy and crazed grin for him for all of his feats, from singing a song to riding a bike to making his own sandwich. Driving, marriage, and children...but let's not rush it! I am enjoying it waaaaaay to much in the meantime!

There's nothing like parental pride is there? Ian put on his own pants today, and even though he picked pajama bottoms with feet (he looked like a peasant serf), we were so proud. I'm sure your little progeny will have a lovely voice. Good genetic material.

What about when he brings you your first spider gift?

Hmmm...nix the grin and excitement. He gets a jar for the eight legged critter and he and his Daddy can rejoice over THAT accomplishment!
