I have absolutely loved bringing both my girls to Jingle with you over the last 4+ years. It has been a real journey.....from those early days when being a Mummy all seemed so new...to those toddler days with Lucy, when I often welled up during the class, because she had pushed yet another child (!)....to the days when I had a tiny newborn Orla in my arms, whilst Lucy bounced on my other knee....to now, when Orla is becoming more and more engaged with what you are doing (although not perhaps today!!)
You have been instrumental (pardon the pun!) in enhancing my girls' musical development and you have inspired them to sing and enjoy music on various different levels, from a very young age. I was only thinking of you this week.....Lucy absolutely loves singing and I'm sure that her love of music and singing started with you and Jo. Her current favourite song is John Rutter's 'Magical Kingdom' (yes, seriously!) I love Rutter myself, and so have been listening to one of his CDs in the car. Lucy has learnt most of the words and she asks for it every day, on the way to and from school! She sings along (beautifully) and keeps the pitch really well! Can you tell I am a super proud Mummy?!? I'm actually going to try and contact the man himself, as on Sunday, she went away (completely unprompted) and wrote out some of the lyrics to the song!! Anyway, the reason for telling you that story, is because I do believe that if she hadn't done Jo Jingles, I don't think she would be as musically minded.
Sarah, Lucy & Orla
