Dapper Snappers – The Musical
I know I am not the only one who wishes that my life was a musical, right? Right? Oh, come on, I know I’m not. You just don’t want to admit it. You know that you would love to have back up singers and dancers every time something great happens, or slow dramatic music and a spotlight every time you need to really reflect on a poignant moment.
I am often times creating a soundtrack in my head, especially while working on my kids belts which sometimes gets me in trouble because I start singing out loud whiles others are trying to concentrate and they give me dirty looks…. But, in my opinion, “Pants on the Ground” is the perfect song to sing while making Dapper Snappers… But I digress…
I grew up watching and loving musicals and no I’m not talking about Grease (have you heard some of the lyrics in this “innocent” little musical, you should Google it, you may be surprised), I’m talking about the Sound of Music and such. I loved singing when I was little. In fact, my brother’s favorite story to tell people about me is how I used to sing to the ants. Yes, ants, not aunts. I am talking about the bugs not the relatives.However, in my defense, I wanted to sing and they had no choice but to listen. They are ants, after all. They were kind of a captive audience and in my humble opinion, I made their boring little day of gathering a little brighter. I was making their lives little musicals!
My love of singing has rubbed off on Bug. I catch her singing all the time and find myself just captivated with her because at that moment (albeit brief) she is my perfect little angel. The moment is then quickly replaced by her screaming at the dog for stealing her cheese stick and I am snapped back into reality.
How’s your musical coming along?
