Sing, sing a song,
Make it simple, to last your whole life long,
Don't worry that it's not good enough,
For anyone else to hear,
Sing, sing a song . . .
La, la la la la . . .

now she only wants non-silly pictures of herself. he thinks funny faces should be for all day everyday. she does not. not anymore. before my eyes she's morphing into a young lady. things must be just so - even more than before. she's aware of the way she looks and i've spotted her in the bathroom mirror, gazing... she's a dreamer this one. she's singing and dancing and very serious. silly song days and funny face smiles have been put on hold, for how long?
there is a photobooth strip i have of her. it is both beautiful and silly, without inhibition. it's why i keep going to booths. and it's tucked away until this serious young lady grows into herself a little more. she has requested no silly face pictures be shown of her.

as for the song up there, that was me getting a little bit of happy stuck in your head - pass it on :)

more friday goodness here and here
