Everyone's a Critic

I fancy myself a pretty good singer. I'm not "American Idol Top 12" good, but I can carry a tune.

Well, while driving in the car today, I sang my daughter a beautiful version of "Put Your Records On" by Corinne Bailey Rae (since it was stuck in my head from last night's American Idol). When I was done my 2 1/2-year-old daughter took her thumb out of her mouth, looked at me in the rear-view mirror and said:

"Thank you Mommy."

I smiled. "Aw, for singing you a song?"

She shook her head fervently. "No, for stopping."

My face fell and I might have even pouted a little.

Tough crowd.


At least I am not as bad as this guy...
