Each Friday I highlight old favorites from my now-abandoned blog “From the Top of the Stairs.” I hope you enjoy the re-runs as much as I do!
Braden will probably hurt me if/when he sees this repeat! However, he and I went running together last night (he felt I needed his encouragement – “Just ONE more block,” said about 16 times), so today I am unable to move without great pain. This is the least I can do to get back at him!
Not exactly my style, but…
As I’ve said before, I really love listening to my favorite music. The boys, Tom, and Savannah all have their own favorite tunes too, of course. Each of our tastes are often VERY different, although there’s usually a few places where common ground can be reached: Chris LeDoux, Toby Keith, etc.
Braden is my truly musical child. He has always been able to carry a tune beautifully (which he did not get from me), although now that he’s hit puberty he sometimes hits an odd note. I love to sing, but I can truly say that I suck. When the kids were little, there were no lullabies in the world that came from my mouth that would calm the kids; I daresay that they usually cried harder after my feeble attempts to soothe them.
