Earlier this week, Maggie and I were walking to the childminder’s in the morning, as we are wont to do.
Maggie started singing.
She has always liked music, and will occasionally try to sing along with a song that’s playing, but this marked the first time she simply broke into song without provocation. I have no idea what she was singing — there was some attempt at melody, some “dadadas” and “lalalas”, and a bunch of unrecognizable words peppered with the occasional “Maggie” or “up”.
And then, in the middle of the song, Maggie sings:
Shake it, girl.
