I'll describe for you

I'll describe for you a wonderful scene but won't share the photos or videos. I think you'll understand why.

For the past few days my daughter has taken a liking to the remaining guitar the wicked cool uncle and aunt gave the boys years ago. I write remaining because the other one suffered a cruel injury when one of the boys jumped off of it. Or on it. She holds it while watching t.v., marches around the first floor playing it, sets up her "stage" in the kitchen and has even napped with it a couple of times.

But when she announced she had to go to the bathroom and took the guitar upstairs I had to follow, with both the still and video cameras.

So there she was on the potty, pants at her ankles, thoughtfully strumming the strings while singing bits of Walking on Sunshine with lyrics I didn't recognize. She had turned the music around a bit and when I tried to correct her I was told to play the drums.

We'll save the images but be discreet about sharing them. Unless she wants them for her first CD cover or music video.

Walking on sunshine
And you don't need to be afraid
Oh oh oh

Walking on sunshine....

Love it! You go baby Avril!
So glad you didn't miss the moment with the cameras. And speaking of that,this line: We'll save the images but be discreet about sharing them. Unless she wants them for her first CD cover or music video. completely cracked me up. Seriously, there is coffee on my computer screen now. Thanks for the sputtering laugh!

Here are some parents who chose not to be so discreet. Their pride in her "reading" skills was too much to keep to themselves.

While I was never the free-dancer she is, I sang everywhere too - lying in snowbanks, walking the rafters in the barn, running through the hay fields. BUT, I was never brave enough to give my parents musical direction..."play drums..."

I love it! Ambassador
