What a Wonderful World
My Lydia has always had a thing with voices- not other people's, hers. She "does" voices, and quite well for her tender 6 years.
Today was spent soccer-ing, thus loads of together time as a family. She was getting really punchy by early afternoon and was singing and being silly in the van. Her crowning moment, however, was when she sang her scat (as in jazz improv, not scatalogical)version of "Mary Had a Little Lamb" in her Louis Armstrong voice and changed the words to "Mary's Got a Big Ol' Lamb!" I thing Satchemo would be proud.
Edited to add: While Lydia was a-singin' away, older sister Claire was decidedly NOT amused. She suggested to her songbird younger sister that "If they ask you if you want to sing professionally, tell them you don't want to." I have no idea who "they" might be, but I had to laugh.
