Sing it sister...

At the park today, Corinne decided to belt out a song from The Little Mermaid. She stood atop the jungle gym, arms outstretched, eyes squeezed shut and face to the sky.

"Up where dey pway! Up where dey wun! Up where dey sing all day in da sun!! .... I wuv my Mommy! Cuz she is my Mommyyyyy and I wuv her so mu-chhh!!!" she has learned how to ad lib at an early age. Definitely a future in the performing arts...

No. Fear.

Not of falling from that wobbly ledge or of being embarrassed that the 3 teenage boys on the swings had stopped their conversations and were chuckling behind their hands. I was tempted, for a brief moment, to ask her to sing somewhere else. That she might be bothering them...

But I realized that this stage of reckless freedom? This moment in time where my daughter absolutely adores herself and doesn't care what 3 teenage boys think?

It rocks.
Shaking her booty at Rib Fest, not a care in the world....
