I've been trying today when Janey starts singing a song to resist the temptation to sing along, and just listen to how she sings. I think I always feel like I have to be in teach mode, and I should sing along to help her learn. But it was great today just listening. She sang her version of Hush Little Baby, with lines like "Sonic's gonna buy you a knockingbird" and "When that dying ring turns grass", instead of Papa's gonna buy you a mockingbird and When that diamond ring turns brass. She loves to sing Frosty the Snowman lately, and sings most of the words to that the conventional way, in rhythm and tune, even when it changes tempo with the Thumpity Thump Thump part.
