As you know from this post, Clara is a big fan of Newsies. It started by just catching it on TV a few times, but now we often play the soundtrack in the car (thanks Spotify!) – her favorite song being Carrying the Banner. Which means that now she’ll randomly break into singing it. I guess getting to play legos with Dad counts as a mighty fine life?
I realize it’s a bit hard to make out, but she’s going for the lyric around 1:15 of this video where they sing “We’s as free as fishes. Sure beats washing dishes.”
I can’t wait until she’s old enough for me to explain to her that I once was a paperboy. Just with less singing, dancing, and turn of the century economic hardship.
