singing Pictures, Images and Photos

I don't know about you but music plays a huge role in my life. I have always loved music. When I was little I would go into my bedroom, close my door, line up all my baby dolls on the bed, grab my Michael Jackson microphone (don't you dare judge me...I know some of you had the very same one), and rock out! I used to dream of being a singer (something about me even my closest friends don't know). I couldn't imagine that there could be any better job in the whole, wide world. Well I was also completely mortified of people (think of the shyest person you know then magnify it by 100...and that was me) so being a singer was pretty much out of the question. But my dream of singing never died.

Fast forward 20 years and now I see that same passion in my oldest daughter Tay-Tay. She is so much like me it's crazy...it seems the older she gets the more she reminds me of myself. Only she's much braver than I was...she'll sing for anyone...and she's AMAZING at it. Maybe it's like that song on High School Musical..."You Are the Music in Me"..lol. Sometimes I'll hear her singing along to the radio when she doesn't know I'm listening and it's hard to distinguish her voice from the singer, she really is that good. Of all of my children she seems to be most like me...and I have to admit that it makes me smile to see her enjoying all of the things that I did. It makes me feel like my passion for singing was maybe for another purpose...maybe I love music so much so that I can encourage her passion for singing. Whatever the reason I just think it's one of life's wonders to see yourself in your child!

So I want to know...which of your children is most like you...and in what way!

  3. I don't have any kids yet, but some of my nieces and nephews are a little like me as I was the most bookish in my family. LOL I always loved to sing, too. I was kinda shy, depending on who I was around. I'd sing solos at church but not in the school choir except when we had to audition for our spots in the county and state choirs. Rock on Tay-Tay!

  4. I do so love Guitar Hero.

    And it's funny that you mentioned the Michael Jackson doll, because I didn't have the doll just the microphone, but I recently found out the my fiance got that doll when he was little and his mom still has it...that is too funny!

  7. My friends and I used to sing with hairbrushes for mics. We thought we were the s@#!

    I adopted my two older kids and my youngest is technically my step-son (although he is my baby and I would die for him), but they are so much like me in some ways it is scary! I think they all learned compassion and have a sense of humor like me. It is so cool how you can mold a person even without having the same blood.

  10. How neat is that!
    My daughter loves to sing and has been in her school's talent show for the past 3 years. I would never have done that when I was younger.
