The Three Tenors

These guys are often in the tree right behind the house.




My granddaughter Hope says good morning to them from her bedroom window as she gets ready for school. My bedroom is right below hers and I can hear her. 

One day I was helping her get dressed and I called the birds the three tenors. Hope is interested in opera so I explained a bit about the three tenors and we listened to a recording of their Central Park concert.

Days later I heard Hope saying good morning to them and then I heard her Mom asking her to please hurry and put her shoes on.

"I'm talking to the three tenors" Hope replies. 
"Where did you learn about the three tenors?" Mom asks.
Hope's answer had me smiling all morning - "From the CD Nana played for me, we do more than just princess you know".

Oh, I love it! "We do more than just princess, you know" is simply wonderful.
I was just talking to my niece about how much I liked picking up her 5-year-old from kindergarten recently.
"Who's that?" one of the other children asked. "Oh, that's my aunt," Mya replied blithely, as though great-aunts were in the habit of traveling hundreds of miles just to fetch from school.
Mya's dad was in hospital and I had gone out to the west coast to be on standby in case I was needed. What a great errand to be asked to do! I enjoyed it SO much.
You're lucky to have Hope living so close to you.

I am glad to hear she is interested in opera and science as well as princesses! (I just got caught up) She is sure to grow up a well rounded individual with you as her Nana.
