This morning Brandon brought out a new song and started singing 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow.' He has a nice singing voice, and I enjoyed the early-morning serenade and the girls stayed quiet. Evidently too quiet.
I sat down at the table and we all folded our arms to pray (well, Sophia just looked around in confusion like she does every time we pray). Only then did we notice Kathleen's face crumpling and hear the beginning of high keening. Then she started bawling. 'That's a saaaaad song,' she sobbed to us. 'Sing a happy song.' And her tears wouldn't stop falling until we had sung her several 'happy' songs.
Who knew 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' could bring a two year-old to tears?
