My boy was playing Sinatra, an elder penguin, in his drama club’s performance of “I’ve Got the Music in Me!” (the elementary school version of “Happy Feet”) He was in both casts, which meant we got to see it twice!
Isn’t he the cutest penguin ever?!
Skylar is the one on the far right wearing the fedora. (what do you mean you can’t see him?)
During the show, the group of penguins sang Sing, Sing a Song… which I LOVE. Didn’t they used to sing that on Sesame Street or something? For some reason, that’s where I think I first heard it. It just makes me happy. And it makes me want to sing.
So naturally, when the penguins started singing, so did I.
That’s when my sweet girl said:
“Mommy, stop singing.”
“Why? I like singing… sing out loud, sing out strong!“
“No one else is singing.”
“Yes there are… look back there… don’t worry if it’s not good enough…”
“You’re embarassing me.”
“…just sing, sing a song…”
“Seriously Mommy. Stop it. It’s not funny. SERIOUSLY.”
“… na na na-na na… na na na-na na na…”
(she still wasn’t over it during intermission)
