A Song for Every Season

You have to be around me a while to learn this:  I can come up with a song lyric for almost any situation in life.  When we fly kites, I bellow, "Let's go fly a kite.  Up to the highest heights!" from Mary Poppins.  When we take baths, it's "Rubber Duckie" or the line from that song in Singin' in the Rain, "Fit as a fiddle (changed to clean as a whistle) and ready for LOOOOOVE!"  

Sometimes the lyrics are a little more obscure, but you get the idea.

The kids love the playset out back and my five-year old loves the trapeze bar.  So, I sing, "We fly through the air with the greatest of ease.  Fly through the air on the flying trapeze."  

Yesterday, as Sam hangs upside down on the bar, she says to her two-year old brother, "Look Chase, we're the greatest of ease!"
