I just love singing Happy Birthday to my family via telephone!
Everyone in my family lives out-of-state, except for one relative. As soon as they pick up the phone, I start my singing and end it with a birthday message. My sisters and brother have all commented favorably, and my grandchildren love it!
Perhaps it is the surprise (because I sure don’t have a great singing voice), but I do try to sound happy and playful. I feel people in general love to feel special and what better time to do this?
When my seven-year old grandson heard my singing message on the answering machine this past Sunday, I’m told he started dancing! How fun is that?! It brought a big smile to my face and it felt great!
I think little 7 y/o Sam has convinced me to continue being the singing grandma.
