WELCOME TO MY "OTHER" BLOG!

If you are coming from Building Heavenly Bridges (BHB), WELCOME and if you are finding me for the first time and looking for support after a loss, then please check me out at my grief/loss blog!



This blog is a series of anecdotes from our life after losing our first child, a stillborn daughter, then going on to birth the two other lights of our lives!

Bear is 6: serious, organized, my cruise director and my time keeper.

The Comedian is 4: She is pure comedy always doing something unintentionaly funny that I attempt to put into words.

Enjoy our stories, conversations, and delights as we embrace the lives of our second and third daughters without ever negating our first.

Show and Tell - A New Focus

No -no...not for me, my plate is full! For The Comedian, of course.

Perhaps you caught her debut dancing video last winter - no? Well - feel free! The girl's got moves!

And, although she sure does bust a groove with just a stick on a rock as a base beat (and, lately - some seriously funky chicken arms to accompany that shakin' bootay), she has recently tried her hand a new style of music making.

You see - my father plays the guitar, really well. I grew up listening to the songs from the 30's, 40's, 50's and beyond coming at me from...the front room! (Note: he's not really that old, he just knows all those songs)

In my teenage years my father turned his song-writing ability into a neat little nitch, writing songs for kids. He recorded four albums! Here is a classic shot of me: permed - playing the flute - questionable belt - and acutually believed I was fat?? Yeah - I was a classy, self-conscious nerd at least, in a recording studio yo!

And so, my kids were born into a musical world where Papa plays for them, at every holiday, and birthday party, and random occassion when he has the guitar in the trunk.

This video was taken on Easter day. He had the guitar because he and I were practicing for our upcoming performance at Share Southern Vermont's First Annual - Walk for Hope and Rememberance!

You KNOW the Comedian had to have a go....and so, I present with great pride -

The Comedian's Acoustic Debut

Candice said...

Great job! She'll be a pro in not time LOL.

Isn't it funny how we think we are so fat when we are young? I wish I was that "fat" again!

Incredible performance! :) I wish I could play that well.

Happy ICLW!

How cool about your Dad! And it obviously has trickled down through the generations. The Comedian is such a cutie. What a great debut! :)

Makes me want to pull out my guitar and start plunking out some chords...

She's fantastic! How awesome that they're getting your family's love of music. My hubby is a pianist and a trombone player...hoping my son can follow that path as well.

Billy said...

A new musician is born :-).

In the first photo...I immediately recognized you...Fat? You thought yourself fat?...

Quite a story there....

Comedian's debut is great..I though she was planning a rendition of Hotel California....then she got conscious..and hence shy and oh....

I love her socks....pretty sweet!

My talents were greater musically when I was a kid, but now I can do the splits!

To be fair, some of the clothes that we wore in the 80s were not very figure-flattering. Tapered jeans with pleats will make anyone look fat!
