‘Mommy, Let’s Just Listen…’

      My son and I sing a lot.  We are not always on key.  But we have a good time.  He loves my singing… or so I thought.

The other day we were listening to kids’ music in the car, I don’t remember the exact song, but it was by Laurie Berkner, Justin Roberts, or They Might Be GIants… oh, or Dan Zanes.  He stopped singing but I continued in my earnest, yet sometimes flat singing voice, and then I heard,

“Mommy, Let’s Just Listen.”

Ummmm.  Okay.

Guess the days of him thinking ‘any song that came out of my mouth was melodious’- are over.

  2. My husband said something very similar to me the other day…. 😉

    I’m not sure if this is the appropriate format to post, but I was hoping to get in touch with you about an event we’re hosting in DC. A fellow local blogger suggested I get in touch with you. Please feel free to email me if you’re interested. Thanks! Adrienne

  4. So cute! My voice is perfectly fine – yet my kids hate it when I sing. It’s like the toddler equivalent of “stop mom you’re embarrassing me!”

  8. My kids say that all the time. But I refuse to take the hint.

Tell me what you're thinking...
