My preschooler likes to sing. All the time, at the top of his lungs. I know who he gets this from.
We used to have fun singing together, but, lately, he’s been objecting when I join in. And, now, he gets mad if I burst into song even when he’s not singing at all. He comes up with all kinds of reasons why I should stop:
Him: Mommy, I can’t hear the song I’m singing in my head.
I suggested that maybe he should ask the voice in his head to sing louder. The other day, he had a different excuse:
Him: Mommy, please be quiet. I can’t hear my spoon and ice cream bowl clicking and clacking.
That is a joyous sound, I’ll admit. Who wouldn’t want an uninterrupted ice cream experience complete with sound effects?
I guess some people just can’t take a hint.
