i could tell Sloanie was nervous.
She inhaled deeply & there was just the slightest quaver...
She clutched her sharpened pencils in her fist & climbed into the van.
Sloanie's in grade 6 this year, so she's writing the provincial exams for math & language arts.
Cairo, sensing Sloan's discomfort gave her the front seat & started the littles singing all the rounds that they knew as i pulled my big 12 passenger van out of McKenzie Towne.
In a moment of silence after they had exhausted much of their repertoire including: Hallelu, hallelu, If You Love Jesus, The Lord Is My Shepherd, I Will Sing Unto the Lord, Jehovah Jireh and Rejoice in the Lord Always, Cai chirped, "What should we sing next?"
A teeny voice from the middle row began, "i... like... big.... buttsandicannotlie..."
Yeh, if i ever get delusions of perfection,
My trusty little sidekick is there to give me a healthy dose of reality.
Keep singin' molls.

Go Mollen!

Melissa said...

I wonder who *my mollen* will end up being? I suspect Dustin... but Meaghan may one day surprise me.

What a little stinker (in a good way)!!!!

What I want to know is how much of the song can Mollen actually sing? :)

Courtney said...

paige said...

Ha! i'm not sure she knows more than the first line :)

Andrea said...

Aidan used to love singing that first line but I never corrected his version "I like big bugs that cannot fly"

Alicia said...

LOL!! I sure needed this laugh right now. She's my kind of gal :)
