I was a little upset that I haven't had "that moment" with KG. Pathetic, I know. So I tried to rationalize it: I rarely have the radio on in the car when we're together, cause let's face it, that's prime convo time with her. And if we're listening to something, it's usually a kid CD, and we do sing together to that. Or, if she let's me sing with her. Sometimes she'll shout, "no mommy, no singing, I do it." Bossy, no?
A few days ago, I was dropping a friend off at the train and I had the country station on quietly while we were waiting. The song Mr. Know-It-All by Kelly Clarkson came on. I have this one on my playlist, so it is one that I enjoy and sing along to myself. All of a sudden, Kage starts singing, "you know me, know me," and I froze and turned around to see her singing along.
It was one of those moments.
So of course, after dropping off my friend, I played the song from my phone to see if what I heard was true and sure enough "you know me, know me, weaving you wonwey wonwey" and I was in heaven! My baby girl is singing with me!
And then she says, "no mommy, no singing, I do it."
Don't doubt that I have played that song every time we get into the car.
