100 Happy Days – Day 22: Singing Children

When your kids sing, it makes all the hard stuff worthwhile.

AB wandering around the house, singing a bittersweet, evocative song to the “friends” she’s carrying with her.

And E heartily singing at the breakfast table: “Oh, tidings are covered in joy, covered in joy!”

I just melt.

He sang this refrain yesterday in he car, too, and asked me, “Mummy, are you covered in joy?” I told him there were definitely times when I am. Like that moment.

(I’m afraid I don’t have photos of this, since you have to just love the moment and a pic wouldn’t do it justice anyway… so I’m cheating on the photo-every-day thing. I’ll see what I can do about a singing montage sometime soon, to make up for it.)

    Yep, yep, yep! My kids singing was one of my favourite things in the world, too! (Some of you sang more than others, but any amount was appreciated.) Loved this post! I want to hear the bittersweet, evocative song. Did she make it up? Everytime I read a Frances book it reminds me of AB, singing the little moments of a day like a living musical.

    [On a totally unrelated note, your rejuvenated blog site appears, unfortunately, to include a whacking great add for auto service right under your post. How gauche of it. Can’t even wait for the comments! Not your fault, of course.]

    Ah, how lovely!
    Yes, singing children – whatever the words or corruptions thereof – is one of the loveliest, most joy-covered things possible!

    I read the last phrase as a singing mortgage, which i think i would also love to see/hear…

    (…and i don’t get the gauche auto service ad)
