Ho Hey

Music loverOur girl is a true music lover.  She just adores music.  When given the choice, she’ll almost always choose to watch a music videos over a kids’ shows, she memorizes faster than I can, and it’s rare to find her not dancing, singing, or holding a microphone of some sort. 

This afternoon, she watched these two videos back to back several times.  She strategically placed her plastic golf club in a blanket to create a mic and mic stand and strummed along on her guitar while practicing the words.  If I would have let her, she probably would have watched until dinnertime.  And I don’t blame her…  Watching these sisters sing almost always brings shiver bumps to my arms or tears to my eyes.  How it’s possible to have that much talent at that young of an age, I don’t know.  Blows me away every time.

Serious Singer Girl {& A Favourite New Etsy Shop}

IMG 7795IMG 7804IMG 7808IMG 7798Oh. my. goodness. Does our little lady ever love to sing!  For the last few weeks, she’s been grabbing wooden blocks, carrots, and whatever else she can find to use as stand-in microphones for performances of ‘We Are Young’, ‘This Girl is on Fire’, ‘Trouble’, and other favourites.  The thing is, she’s very serious about it all.  She has to be in a certain spot, she has to have a microphone of some sort, and it has to be a song she knows well. Her vocals are accompanied by emotion, hand gestures, and dance moves that prove she’s been studying the artists closely while watching their music videos.

In light of her new love for singing, I decided to get her a microphone and knew Etsy would be the place to go.  Sure enough, after a quick search, I found the perfect one… Handcrafted and made of wood, finished with natural oils only, simplistic, and requiring zero batteries. My kind of toy.  I put the order through, received a shipping notification within 2 days, and it arrived quickly.  Plus it’s absolutely beautiful… Doesn’t get much better than that.  I’d highly recommend checking out the shop it came from (Wee Woodworks) online.  Their animal-shaped percussion instruments are ridiculously cute too.

Papa’s Dahk-Tar

IMG 7203IMG 7202Yesterday I introduced my little lady to the beautiful nesting babushka dolls my dad brought back for me after one of his work stints in Russia…  Today, Bradley introduced her to his childhood guitar (which for some reason, she calls a ‘dahk-tar’).  It’s been a couple of very special days.

Stompa.

Miss G’s been a big fan of this song for quite a while and now that they’ve started playing it on our local radio station? Well she’s pleased as punch.

Impromptu Drum Circle

Household Object Drum CircleToday as I was organizing the mess of mason jars in our hallway catchall closet, my curious Miss G spied some old wine gift tubes in the bottom.  Naturally, she yanked them out and began drumming on them.

IMG 5665Before long, we’d yanked out all kinds of pots, containers, and bowls out and created an impromptu drum circle for the budding musician in our family.

IMG 5669Maracas, rhythm sticks, wooden spoons, a xylophone, and background music were added in along the way too.

IMG 5667Perhaps not the most neighbour-friendly activity if you live in a small apartment or have basement tenants below you (ours weren’t home), but great fun for a rainy day.

Here’s our little musician jamming out…

Rudolph Lives On

She spent the holidays singing this song for nearly anyone who’d listen, and believe it or not, it’s still alive and kickin’ even now in February (with killer dance moves no less).

Gracen Sings

This may be a video only a mama can sit all the way through, but every minute seriously melts my heart.  Especially around 4:35 when she attempts to convert her ‘3’ into a ‘2’.  ☺

Never EVER.

Miss G has been a fan of Taylor Swift’s ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together‘ for a long while now, but just recently she’s taken her sing-a-longs to a whole new level.  If you’ve ever seen the video, you know that it starts and ends with Taylor sitting in front of a window and for part of it, she talks into an old-school cordless phone.

Never Ever

Well now, when this little monkey wants to sing one of her very favourite tunes, she must be standing looking out a window, and she must have her ‘never ever phone’ in hand.

Singing  Window Front

Here she is singing away…

Perhaps we have a little musician in the making?

“Girls ‘Tainer Song”

Miss G is currently in love with this song she affectionately refers to as “Girls ‘Tainer (container) Song”.  She loves it so much in fact, that nobody is allowed to sing along.  If I absent mindedly find myself quietly humming along with the tune, I’m promptly reminded “No Mama sing. Just girls sing.”  Well okay then…
