The Next American Idol!!

So I'm sitting at the computer checking a few blogs, when I hear a high pitched noise that I can only attribute to an animal in terrible pain! I run to the window to find out that Claire is singing her heart out and using a plastic spoon as her microphone! I begin to laugh hysterically at the same time checking to see if any neighbors are looking out their windows. I pray they don't call the animal control reporting that some wounded dog in the neighborhood needs help! I decided I needed to document this if she ever made it on American Idol or the Grammys. Then I thought, maybe if she only makes it as far as a one hit wonder like Tiffany, then these photos E News will need when they do their show, "Where are they Now!" I was able to snap a few before she seemed to notice. I loved all her poses and how she didn't have a care in the world if anyone was watching. That was until she saw Mom with the camera. Once she caught me the waterfalls began to flow and she ran away. I was able to coax her out of hiding and pretended that the pictures didn't come out at all!

Oops, my bad?

I know, I know it's a jungle out there! The lawn is in need of a good haircut! Does anyone know a good barber?





Here's to singing your heart out like no one's watching!

SOOOOO sweet! My Little Ballerina is the same way about dancing. She dances her little heart out as long as nobody is looking.

To singing and dancing like no one's watching. :)

I am a good lawn barber but darned if I didn't just mess up my back. As for the singing beauty? Next time join her. Inside. Top of your lungs. With the radio and spoon mics. Peace.

I used to do that. A neighbor even made fun of me once and I was INSIDE my own house. LOL But you know what? I became a voice major in college and for a time singing was a career that took me places I would never have gone otherwise, so ya never know. Rock on Claire. Someday Mama will need a press pass. :)
