Writing with Children: Hint #2

Karaoke machine. Trust me.

I was cleaning out my closet yesterday, a chore I had been dreading but couldn't put off seeing as how I  didn't have homework to...distract me anymore.  :)

I had actually gone looking for said object a few months back and couldn't find it. Go figure.  But yesterday's cleaning unearthed the "treasure" and the rest of the day was filled with music and....laughter.  Oh yes, lots of laughter.  There was choreography, duets, and moments where I thought my son was back (nope, just my beast of a daughter with a seriously low voice).

I learned who could sing and who couldn' the lyrics.  :)  You thought I was going to rat out my non-singers.  I can't, and not just because I love them. Proudly I don't have any non-singers.  Music has always been a big part of our lives and we've been blessed with pitch perfect children. :)  (okay, brag moment over)

So yeah, a Karaoke machine...and maybe some earphones. Because as occupied as they were yesterday, I was too distracted in listening to them (and laughing) to get any work done.  :)  We're on day two now and any moment we have some little friends coming over.  It's going to be a sing-songy day in the Adair home.

*pulls out earphones*

Happy Writing...with children.
