my great vocal talents

I was driving in the car with Hannah today. We were running some errands and she asked me to turn on some "nuusic," as she calls it (I totally love it that she still says some words wrong). I asked her what she wanted to listen to, and her request was "the Christine nuusic," (for those of you that don't speak Hannah fluently, it means the Phantom of the Opera). So I put the CD on for her. After a few minutes, I'm getting my Phantom groove on and I start singing along - fairly loud and enthusiastically, I might add.

She had been singing as well, but stopped suddenly and said, "You can just turn it off now. I don't like it when you sing."

That's so great! Glad to hear I'm not the only one. Maren told me yesterday "Mom, you've been giving me a headache all evening." When I asked her why she said its because I kept singing. This is why I mostly lip sync in Sac. mtg.

Kids! I've been known to get that request. Hmph!!

My kids always tell me to stop singing...except at lullaby time...anything to prolong the evening, I guess!

I drove to California with some friends in January, and by the 9th hour the selection on my iPod had narrowed down to Phantom. I probably scared the people in my car with my singing of not only Raul and the phantom's parts, but of Christine and Carlotta's as well!

That's a boy that was raised right, Michael!

I get that too! I tell myself it's not my tune (or lack thereof), but A. wanting to control her 3 yr. old world as much as possible.

At least you weren't walking along the street singing along to your iPod, like one lady I passed. Where's Hannah when we need her?

Amber said...

Ahhhh, if I had a dollar for everytime my daughter orders me to stop singing....

Daniel said...

I'm with Hannah. I don't like it when you sing either.

Hannah gets that from her grandfather. When I was about her age, I recall begging my Mom to stop singing a lullaby to get me to go to sleep.

I don't think I ever heard Grandma Johnson sing....thanks Bill!! Bob's singing has greatly improved over the years, but there was a time he would have been paid to stay out of the ward choir! Gotta love kids...in the brain and out the mouth!

I'll belt out the tunes with you any day! We did have to institute a "don't sing louder than the radio" rule in our car, though, for family peace. (Hannah is beginning to sound a lot like a 13-y-o...first your outfits, now your singing!)

And I'm wondering how Phantom of the Opera became your holiday accompaniment :)
