Star Swingin': The Next Generation

Addendum! I love it! In my last post I rambled about among other things Kathryn & Bing Crosby, my grandparents, and how very much I would like to go swing on a star. This morning I opened my e-mail to find a comment from my mother. (The characters you need to know are narrator=my mom, my sister Lesley, and my nephew Ethan who TURNS 3 TODAY YIKES!!!)

About six months ago Lesley called me and asked me about "Swingin' on a Star". She was singing it to Ethan and couldn't remember all the verse about the mule. So I told her. Now sometimes when I'm with Ethan I'll sing it -- and he says the words, too. He chooses which verse to begin with. I'll say, "Who shall we sing about first?" He'll say, "Fish!" -- and off we go. We haven't done this for a while. Thanks to your blog I will start it up again.

This has made me still more delighted, so I continue being high on the stars and the music. And, might I add, smart kid -- he likes the fish verse, too!

That's so nice. That's the kind of thing that makes kids SO fantastic. And to know that these little things are floating around in their heads is such a thing of joy and beauty. "Fish!" Nice
