Gabriella and I sing songs together before bedtime. I love this special time we spend together. I love to sing, but have a horrible voice, so I love the fact that as a mother there is no one else my kids would rather have sing to them than me. (For now)
I used to get to pick the songs, but now the boss does that. Tonight it was a rousing version of "Three Green and Speckled Frogs". I always lower my voice so that I can hear her, with all her little mispronunciations. We count down in the verses the green-and-speckled frogs: three, two, one. When we run out of frogs I look to her for our encore, to which she answers, (big grin on her face)...
"Ten green and speckled frogs, sittin' on a hollow log..."
I guess I'm not the only one who loves our time together.
