Whilst Twittering & checking weather.com, Sweet Caroline (come on, Neil, baby--I still love you!) ran over and said, "I wanna sit with you!" We're hanging out at the computer, enjoying each other and having a moment when I decide to serenade her with my best Kathleen Battle impersonation. (She's an opera diva, for those lacking culture.)
Me: "Grace, grace, God's grace, grace that will pardon and cleanse within..."
Caroline: "No sing, Mommy...no sing!"
She puts her hands over my mouth while I continue my aria-wannabe, with more gusto and bravado. Then my 2.5 year old daughter reaches into the basket next to me, pulls out a stick of gum and proceeds to shove it into my mouth, saying, "There you go."
