I’m rolling two posts into one this Wednesday as Tara has prompted us with Colour for The Gallery this week and I need to get a twin post in for the Multiple Mayhem Carnival held over at Rebecca’s blog Here Comes The Girls on Friday and anyway, when I look at my girls, their clothes, their toys it is an explosion of colour. There is no quiet contemporary look in this house!
Thankfully they have started sharing more of their preschool experience with me now and one thing they are both very taken with is singing the Rainbow Song. Apparently the teachers choose various children to represent the individual colours of the rainbow depending on what colour clothes they are wearing that day….you’ve got it haven’t you? We now have discussions on what to wear to preschool every day where I have to convince each twin to wear the stuff I had planned, ‘Look at this lovely orange?’
Everything was going swimmingly well until one day Alice returned from preschool rather upset that she hadn’t been chosen that day pointing out ‘Just look at this beautiful yellow, mummy!’ to strengthen her case!
I remember months back teaching the girls to draw a rainbow too as with one easy arch of the pencil a few times changing colour as you go et voila! You have a rainbow. Now I have an entire folder full of rainbows and I’ll sneakily admit to throwing some out as I there are only so many rainbows I can home.
I love the fact they one of them will burst into song at any time, loudly, off key but with enormous smiles on their faces. They love singing and are getting together quite a repertoire thanks to preschool where I think they sing most days. So I give you ladies and gentlemen I Can Sing a Rainbow, by Alice and Bessie
