So I have seen several people linking up to a fun weekly link. "Songs That Make US Sing" by, (Not) Just Another Mom of Twins. I've never joined in for two reasons.
1) I mostly write about the kids and things to do with them
2) How could I pick one song? I almost always have a song going through my head and often walk around singing it out loud. (Yes, I've become my mother. I just have to accept it.)
Well, this weekend, both of those problems were solved. Saturday, we were out and this song came on. It is extremely sing-along-able (yeah, I'm pretty sure that's a word), so of course I was singing along. It made my day when Will joined in and sang with me (the "Oh, oh, oh"s at the end-- you can't not sing them) Like I said, I always sing, but what makes me seriously happy is singing with my kids. Love it!
Then today we were in the car again with the radio on (two days in a row of listening to the radio in the car instead of a kids cd. How did I get so lucky?) when this song came on again. Once it got into the chorus, Will recognized it and said, "Listen Mom. It's our song." So what's a mom to do? We turned it up and sang along-- loud. I loved it. I know that he won't sing along with me forever. In fact, he'll probably be embarrassed enough just by me singing (remember, I get this from my mom. I remember being a twelve year old in the back seat horrified that my mom always had to sing-- even when I had friends in the car!), so I'm definitely going to enjoy this while I can.
Here is 'mine and Will's song'!
