Singing the night away

I was an hour of entertainment for my kids tonight, singing and acting out every disney song I knew - especially the princess songs. That was how I used to entertain the kids I babysat. I can remember countless children in different families who would dance with me as I sang about dreams, wishes, and far away lands.

The girls decided we should be Disney Princesses. Abby suggested we make our own movie! The story line so far is that I'm the queen (surprisingly, a good queen) and they're the princesses and we get separated. Nathan is going to be the knight that saves us. Maybe he rides in on his princely electric train set? :) I don't know where the story is going, but Abby's composing the music and Katie's doing the dancing!

I just love singing that kind of music. We watched "Barbie and the Island Princess" tonight. I just don't think I'll ever outgrow a good romantic fairty tale. I thank God every day that he gave me girls to enjoy this with!

Anyway, there's no real reason I'm sharing this, except that maybe one day we will all be singing together in something - even if it's a movie we make ourselves. I love seeing their excitement, especially in something I enjoy so much too!

Good night, and sweet dreams!

I enjoy seeing the way you interact with the 3 diversified children in your life. Your gift is an inspiration to teachers far and wide on how different children can interact with each other and have a great time doing it.
