Once Upon a Dream

Have you ever heard a 23 month old sing?

I was sitting here, feeling a little brain dead. It's been one of those days. Laundry, dishes, toys, repeat. And some writing in there. And some wishing.

And then I hear, coming from the next room, my tiniest one singing. She has an Aurora doll that sings "Once Upon a Dream". My little girl has an adorable voice. When she sings that song, it makes me believe in dreams all over again. My dreams. Even on a day like today.

Yes, I know it's true
that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you,
I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once
the way you did once
upon a dream
Visions are seldom all they seem. That's one thing you can never put a cap on. No matter how small your life may be right now, there's no limit to how big you can dream. I'm a hopeless dreamer. I can't stop. I work hard, put everything I have into it, and then I hope and I dream, and I don't know how to give up.
And so I wait...because I believe too, that someday, in some form, my dreams will come true.

Well...I can only imagine how glorious she must have sounded. I love to hear Oakley sing...especially when she adds her special vibrato into it...!!!
