I cranked up my Chicago (the musical) soundtrack on my iPod at work today. I LOVE this soundtrack! You see, I've always had this dream of being a Broadway star...(but I kind of need to have singing and dancing talent :) No matter, I still make up my dance routine and perform them in my mind...and I must say, I rock! :)
My daughters are about the only audience I'll ever have, though. From day one, I've always sung to Sydney. I would sing opera performances for her, "It's time to change your DIAPERRRRR (hold the high note!). For months and months, I was a STAR in the eyes of Syd. Oh yeah, I'd get clapping, "Yea Mommy!" But one day, Mommy's coolness disappeared. Yeah, I knew the day was inevitable... I just thought I'd have maybe a seven or eight year run - not two! Yes, my daughter informed me my star days are over. I remember the performance like it was yesterday. The Clifford theme was playing, and I just couldn't control myself. I broke out into song and dance. Sydney looked at me and very seriously said, "no Mommy, no more dancing!" Well I stopped in my tracks (and tricks) and said, "but Sydney, Mommy's a great dancer." Her response, "No Mommy you're not a good dancer." Ohhh, right to the heart!
Well, that's OK... I still have some time to work on Natty... "Oh Natalie...let's go take your BATHHHH!"
