Getting lost with 5 kids, aged 3 to 13. Kids who sing along, at the top of their sweet tuneless voices, to – “We Didn’t Start the Fire”, ” We Will, We Will Rock You” and “True Colours”. The techie and I couldn’t stop grinning at each other last Sunday evening as we drove our chorus around town searching for an elusive hotel.
The techie is maternal uncle to 6 kids (actually cousin to one) and he has played zillions of songs in three different languages to each of them, from birth. He would keep trying till he found the one song that could stop any bout of crying and give their exhausted moms a break. I guess that’s why all of them would rather squeeze into our tiny car than be parted from him.
We need more Sunday evenings like last weekend.
