Singing through it all

Choo-choo has been saying a lot of things in sing-song lately. The other night it was: 🎶 “I want to ea-eat din-ner.”🎶 And today:🎶 “Why are we going down the stairs?”🎶

It’s too cute!

Of course, he nearly always wants me to reply in song. I am getting much more comfortable with others hearing me sing out loud. It used to be only me and God. Then me, God, and Choo-choo. I wouldn’t even sing for a Diesel though he asked me to like a million times,

Once, my mother caught me singing with the headphones on, so she only heard my voice. I was so mortified that I didn’t sing out loud like that for weeks.

The ironic thing is that I was in choir all through middle and high school. I was even part of my church’s choir for a year. I just never wanted anyone to hear my voice and my voice only. Voice testing for choir class was an experience I wished I could have done anything to get out of.

I will keep making up songs as long as he wants me to. I will sing with him whenever he asks. I love hearing him say, after he’s asked me to sing, “That make me happy.”

That makes Mama happy, too.
