Grace called a family meeting the other night. We sat on the couch and she stood on the coffee table to sing a song she had written. I found her original piece and I’ll type how she wrote it. I just adore her spelling at age 7.
it was esay in the past, But its getting harder evey time
I’m getting sick of it now and if I tell you its guna bring me down, Down, Down
Nothing forever can heal me
no nothing, no nothing, nothing
nothing can heal me now
Everything is going to bring me down
As she finished her song, she took a bow and giggled. We all sat there completely stunned. Where did these sorrowful lyrics come from? I asked her a few questions, trying to find the source of such angst in my happy little girl, but she just laughed at me and insisted, “Nothings wrong mama! I just felt like writing this song!”
A few minutes later, as I cleaned up the kitchen table, I found another song. This time it was Kaylee’s work and the tone was much different:
I feel that sensation rising, My Heart just skipped a beat. I don’t know why I feel this inside!
My heart goes thumpity thump tump!
When I see your face…My heart goes thumpity thump thump!
So…I love you, you love meeeeeeeee!
I don’t know whyyyyy you are the greatest sight.
I Looooooove yooooou! Yoooooou Love me…
This song, I can totally dig. However, to my surprise, Kaylee seemed embarrassed that I found it. She wouldn’t sing it for me; she wouldn’t talk about it at all. She wanted to throw it away.
These two girls…..so different and yet so alike. It’s a mystery that every parent of more than one child will notice.
