I Love

A few weeks ago while driving around town, Avee started singing. Nonstop. And nonsense. I rarely listen to what goes on behind me when I'm driving, so it took me a while to actually hear her. She is much like me and can't carry a tune. Actually, forget carrying one. If either of us could FIND it, we'd probably carry the tune just fine. And like me, she couldn't care less.

Unlike me however, she thinks she's a superstar.

So, for the past couple of weeks, she has asked me to sign her up for a singing contest. This is an interesting request to me, for several reasons.
1. We don't watch American Idol or any other singing contest, so I have no idea where she got this idea.
2. Everything I have signed her up for (gymnastics, swimming, t-ball) she has refused to do either after the first class, or within two seconds of arriving.
3. She would surely not fare well if I did manage to sign her up for a singing contest.
4. She has asked me to do this at least 5 times over the last couple of weeks.

To remedy the problem of there being a serious lack of singing contests for four year old girls in Iowa who have yet to bother learning the correct lyrics for their favorite song Twinkle, Twinkle---I told her I'd video her singing and then people could watch it, and tell her what they think. This seemed to work.

All this is really a prelude to---there will probably be more of Avee singing, with a request for judging, but THIS video is actually impromptu and I managed to catch it before she quit. It is very Avee-esque. Particularly the "but not really" stuff.

Baby is played by my sister's son Thomas. Avee has named him Bubbaface, which I love. She also has momentary back up vocals from Caroline.

There are artists (term loosely applied) that sound a whole lot worse than that and have sold millions of records (do they still refer to it as a gold record if it is a CD?). You could have the next Shirley Temple or the future lead singer of a yet unnamed group.

That was so cute, but not really....HA! It was too cute...but then again I am a sucker for a raspy voice. :)

What I love is the emphasis of "like you!" with her arm and pointing finger. Every time. I know I've said it a million times, but she is awesome. She could rock the world even without the ability to find a tune.

And how is Bubbaface that grown up already? I liked his little grin and coo at the end...:)

Oh. And tell her. She gets a definite "yes" from this judge. Or five stars. Or a "see you in Hollywood" gold paper. Or something. Two thumbs up.
