pretty singing voice

mitch told me a funny story about lala the other day that i wanted to put down in writing. i tell you, that girl is a hoot to have around, but she can also be a challenge. (the hoot, definately, makes it worth the challenge, though!)

it was mitch's turn to tuck the girls into bed and they asked him to sing songs for them. lala told him that she wanted him to sing "lullaby" (that is what we call "mary's lullaby" from the children's hymnbook). then she thought for a moment and said, "but you have to have a pretty voice to sing it daddy, and you don't have a pretty voice! so, you can't sing it!" so, he didn't sing it because she wouldn't let him!

One day Mikaila will say that to me, but until then I sing my heart out!

EVERY time I sing, with the exception of bedtime, Ethan will very politely ask me to 'please stop it.' He also cries when I straighten my hair because he says it doesn't look good at all.
