This Spotlight isn't big enough for the two of us... so go get me a sippy cup with tea and lemon.

Jack has a toy microphone that plays music to which he can sing along.

His song of choice? Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.

He's always enjoyed singing. But now hes taken it to the next level.

Now he enjoys performing.

Note the closed eyes, the mic tilted upward. The slight raising of the hand.

Yeah. He totally owns it.

I was watching him and couldn't help it. I started singing with him.

WARNING: The fairytale stops here, people.

Jack's eyes snapped open and flashed me the dirtiest look.

He slammed the mic down on the table and said,

"This is MY song, Momma. My song."

I bit my lip to keep from laughing. He picked up the mic again.

Eyes close. Melody resumes.

I couldn't help it. I joined in again (just to see what would happen).

This time he drops the mic on the floor, turns around, walks away and says,

"I sing alone."

Um, yeah, I think you have a diva on your hands (or is that a "divo" if it's a male? I digress). Maybe he and Travis could pair up and form a band. They'll be famous and we'll live on their coat-tails. We can hand them their sippy cups with tea and lemon and be happy if they acknowledge our existence.

Sigh. It's their world and we just live in it.

The hands did it! Sooo cute!

Oh man, I think Don needs to start working on him for the worship team. So awesome! My favorite part, "I sing alone."

Ashley had that same mic and that was her favorite song funny. However I never attempted to sing a long because I was told once in the car that "I am not a good singer at all and I should stop"...learned my lesson there.

Awesome. That is one of my new favorite stories and soon-to-be-famous one-liner! Once in college we went to a karaoke bar and Kristi mocked me for weeks for lifting up my hands like I was leading worship whilst singing Hold On For One More Day by Wilson Phillips.

Very cute! The hand, eyes closed, tilted mic... he's so money! Brandi

Don said...

That pic can be on his album cover!

Kristi said...

First of all...what JEN? I mocked you? I never... :)

Secondly...when is Jack trying out for the worship team. I'll have to be sure not to schedule you together since he needs his own spotlight! :)

if you need to find me or hope we'll be living in their shadows

VikingMom said...

Kurt...are you the wind beneath their wings? (And now enters Bette Midler to sing your song.)
