On the Shuffle Mode

Hannah sings very regularly all day. Especially during the more boring days at home, the house is filled with her voice. While she does have the capability to sing quite well, most often she uses this odd falsetto that grates on my nerves. Think Miss Piggy plus Julia Childs gallivanting around you singing random nursery rhymes peppered in between excerpts of the Divine Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom.

"Bah bah black sheep have you any wool? Yessirw yessirw blah blah boo...Weceive da body of Jesus Chwist...Taste the fountains of immowtalities...ALLELUIAH! ALLELUIA! ALLLL-E-LUUUU-IIIII-AAA!

A couple of times after being in the middle of something and growing annoyed I've (on accident) told her to please be quiet. And then I felt guilty right afterward. It's so precious. I love that she just sings her little heart out. I'm praying I will grow to appreciate her vocal styling. And I'm pretty sure I was similar as a child. I seriously thought my parents couldn't hear me singing in the shower until I was like 18, and then I kept on singing anyway, because they're my parents, they'd still love me.
