These songs took me back to my childhood

My 6-year-old son brought back the tool box which he uses at school last Friday because the winter vacation will start from Dec 23rd.

I opened the box to check whether there was something to take out or not yesterday's evening.

Then I found a song book in it.

I had a book like it when I was an elementary school student.

I opened the book.

I could see many good old songs.

"Wow! It takes me back to my childhood!"

I started singing.

Then my 5-year-old daughter also started singing.

"Do you know this song?"

I was surprised and asked her.

"Yeah, I learned it at the nursery school."

My 6-year-old son also started singing with us.

I sang a lot of songs.

There were some new songs which were not on my old song books, but all of them were very famous and popular and you might have heard if you were Japanese.

For example: "The only flower in the world" sung by SMAP, "Boyhood" sung by Yosui Inoue, "Stroll" from the famous movie "My neighbor Totoro"


Since I enjoyed singing very much, I continued singing for more than one hour before I noticed.

My children sometimes sang with me.

My husband was sleeping on the sofa near us, but he didn't wake up though we were singing in loud voices.

I wrote about his happening in yesterday's post, so you can find out why he didn't wake up in such a noisy situation!

After about one hour, my husband finally woke up.

It was already 9pm.

"Did you hear our songs?"

"No, not at all."

He seemed to be sleeping like a log.

"Look at this! You can see many songs which will bring back old memories."

We sang some songs together.

I haven't sung recently though I like singing.

Maybe  I’ve  had a lot on my plate and I haven't had a room in my mind.

I really enjoyed singing yesterday.

It might be important to stop working, studying, and doing housework and enjoy something else once in a while.
