The other day, I went to pick up my three year old daughter Skylar from the daycare and here is what my conversation with her teacher went:
Teacher: Do you guys go to church?
Teacher: A Christian church?
Me: Yes…. Why?
Teacher: Skylar has been singing: “Yes Jesus loves me" since this morning...
She is singing all the time. We have a Celine Dion in our house. The funny thing is that her Sunday school teacher told me the other day that, every time they ask Skylar to sing, she never does. But as soon as we leave church it is like she enters into a recording studio. I always have my phone ready to record whenever she starts singing. I have almost twenty songs recorded on my phone. It is something special. Needless to say that we cannot watch TV when Skylar is around. She sings so loudly that we can’t even hear what is on TV.
Now she is at the point where she has created her own original songs. Here is one of them (please don’t steal her song, this is trademarked lol). It goes like this:
We’re going to the Zoo
And we see:
Zebra eating food
(And we repeat the song 10 times lol)
Whenever she cries, all I have to do is sing a song and she gets quiet (she doesn’t care that it is a voice like mine lol).
Will she be a singer when she grows up? I have no idea. What I do know is that I will give her the freedom to choose whatever career she wants. Do you know why? Well, that is what my mom did for me, and I will be forever thankful.
Talking about my mom, I think about her a lot now as Burundi is experiencing troubles. Let’s all pray for peace in Burundi.
This was a little tribute to two of my favorite ladies. Of course there is a third one. She will get an entire blog by herself. Stay tune.
Moral of the story? Do you want to do something special for the ladies in your life? Just let me know and Skylar will sing for you. It will most likely be about Jesus
Always a pleasure
