Will You See Your Shadow? Groundhog Day Song {Freebie}

Be REALLY glad that you can't me hear me sing when I'm making up songs or pretty much anytime I'm singing. I'm one of those people who really can't sing, but LOVES to sing anyway. :) Sometimes, my class and I will be singing a song and the para in our class will be singing along and I will stop so the kids have to fill in the missing part of a song and she will keep singing and we both laugh. It's only funny because she CAN sing and I'm, at best, very pitchy. Ha!

Everyone in my family can sing well. Hmm, maybe I am adopted. 

Somehow, singing with kiddos is amazingly fun! They are so enthusiastic and carefree! However, when adults have to hear me, I want to fore worn them to cover their ears and to please not judge me. I remind them that the kids don't seem to mind how horrible I am. 

Well, if you've made it this far, I'm rewarding you with a freebie song for Groundhog Day that I made up this evening! Thanks for sticking with me! :) Click on the picture below to get your copy.

So, what kind of singer are you?


  1. a terrible one, I don't have tone or pitch and I can barley keep to the right tune! The funny thing is when I am in the car with the radio blasting I think I sing great! Thanks for the freebie, the kids will love it!

  3. I am an enthusiastic singer. I believe enthusiasm trumps talent.

    I think Groundhog Day is a weird holiday, but I like your song.

  7. That's so stinkin cute! I'm a decent singer. Back in high school I was pretty good. But now I only belt the tunes in the shower and the car. I do sing in front of my kids and they think I'm great! Ha!

  8. I cannot sing! I had one of my kiddos ask me once why I didn't sound like the Music teacher when I sang a particular song. I told her God gives everyone their voice and this is the one He gavc me...and they still love me for it!
