Weird genetics

When I was a little kid I used to make up songs quite a bit (at least, if the cassette tape evidence is to be trusted). They were not lyrical or musical masterpieces; just sing-songy accounts of the details of my preschool life. A verse that sticks out in my mind (thanks to the aforementioned cassette tapes) went: "I'm a little girl/I drink water/From a bottle/Every, every second day".

I should be up for a grammy, right?

Anyway, Liel has started doing the very same thing. Pretty odd. Hilarious, too. Yesterday I overheard her singing: "Oy-Boy did something mean/To his sister/And his mother and father/Told him not to".

That is it! I want to get preggers so I can have someone else in the house singing songs about the day/moment.
How fun it must be to overhear her singing...of course I'm sure that sometimes you overhear not-so-fun stuff, too - like little fights.
Still, totally worth it.

I make up songs NOW, I wonder if I did as a kid.
