The "Prepare Song"...

I discovered something new about grandson, Caden, this Christmas season!  I discovered that this little fellow knows how to sing!

Cade is very quiet most of the time.  He's a serious little boy, always concentrating on the task at hand--usually playing with a tractor or a train.  He doesn't spend much time on idle conversation when he's at my house, and he sure doesn't sing!

The other night, out of the blue, Cade began singing "Joy To The World"!  I couldn't believe my ears, even though daughter, Brandy had told me Cade knew how to sing this song.  He sang every word beautifully, and was right on key!  I was impressed, and thrilled, that I finally got to hear it!

Hearing that tiny little voice sing that song took me back nearly thirty years, to a time when Cade's daddy could sing "Amazing Grace" as good as any adult--and he was only two!  (Such sweet memories.)

Now you may be wondering what all of this has to do with the title of this post.  Well, at first,  Cade didn't know what the title of the song was, so he referred to it as "The Prepare Song". (from the line of the song that says, Let every heart, prepare  Him room...) and just  I love it!

Is't it sweet how children pick up things you don't even realize they would. It goes to show how smart they really are!
Thank you for joining my blog. I see that you were formerly a teacher. I teach preschool children in my home. Most are 2-3 years old. I have a lot of fun with it. When you go to my blog, click on the tab "my work" and it will show you pictures of the things I do with them.

Aww...that is adorable. Maybe one day you'll catch him singing it again and be able to tape it. Now that would make a great post. ♫♪
