soft notes

Emma used to think that Toby really didn’t like her singing, and would tell me that every time she sang he would cry, which wasn’t actually true. But she was finally made to feel better by a request a few days ago.

As well has having some “real” Kipling for Toby (he quite likes some of the Just So Stories) we got him a book of the Disney version of the Jungle Book. When she reads it for him, she sings little bits of the Disney songs in the appropriate places. A couple of nights ago they were hanging around and he said “Mummy, will you sing a song for me?” When he was asked what song he would like, he said “The soft notes that the girl in the Jungle Book sings”
