Chad has rythym!  
So, yesterday there was a lot of singing going on around our place, especially Christmas music, which Bri loves. And Chad has turned into quite the little singer. He can even improvise on songs, like a would-be Harry Connick, Jr.

I'm not sure when all this happened, but in the past two years, Chad has gone from a relatively shy, uncommunicative kid to an outgoing, un-self-conscious little person. He used to be so OCD in the way he'd play with his toys or deal with his clothes and belongings, I worried about how he'd develop. He was always deathly afraid of offending anyone, especially us... and especially me. He was ultra neat and hated anything that smacked of getting dirty.

Well, he's still cleaner that most of the kids he plays with, but he's not nearly as timid. Sometimes he'll even purposely test me, which is the way it should be with a growing boy.

Anyway, I'm proud of how he's growing up, even though the music thing is annoying. Now I have three would-be singers in the house (when you count Linds)!
Feeling: pleasedpleased
Listening to: My own chorus

Jim, I love entries like this! Such insight into your home and family.

It sounds like Chad is a very special little boy. (And no wonder, with you and Brian as parents!)

The 'music thing' sounds lovely to me, though. (smile)

*laughs* Face it you're outnumbered. Give into your dark side, sing back at them. Can you do the Chipsmunks version of some of the Christmas carols? Remember to do Alvin's voice.
