Our normally happy kid was being quite grumpy a few evenings ago as I was trying to make dinner. I am sure that he was hungry and just being impatient, but regardless, I was getting frustrated with his whining, and just wanted to be able to finish my task without a toddler hanging onto my leg.
About the time I was reaching the boiling point, my CD mix in the stereo came to the Bohemian Rhapsody. As Freddy sang, "I'm just a little silhouette of a man..." Said grumpy toddler suddenly became happy and danced away the next 4 minutes of the song.
Thank you, Freddy, wherever you are- your music has provided relief to this tired Mama.
