singin' in the rain

That little girl makes my heart sing. It has been raining since early morning, and I've had a ho-hum rainy day at home catching up on housework. I was just coming down the stairs after moving over the laundry when I heard her voice:

"I'm singin' in the wain, jus' singin' in the wain. I'm singin' and dancin' in the wain."

There she was out on the wet patio barefoot and dancing. I guess I've been singing that song around the house more than I realized (I saw the movie a few days ago for the hundredth time). Knowing the camera was in the car Chris took to work, I raced to get my camcorder only to see the memory stick was missing. So I just leaned against the doorpost with a grin on my face, and when she urged me to join her, who was I to argue?

How sweet!! I think sometimes that I spend more time behind my camera than I should, but I don't want to forget a single moment. On the other hand, sometimes I hate to tear myself away from a precious unplanned moment. It will be saved in your memory, I am sure, but thanks for sharing the mental picture. =)

Wow, I haven't seen that movie in at least a decade, and I love it too. What a sight Eliza must have been on the patio! And I'm with you- how could you resist?

Oh, I can see her and I can feel your sweet love for her. Really moments like that will last forever captured in photos or words. So sweet.
