William singing Amazing Grace!

William singing Amazing Grace! William is 2 1/2 and loves to sing and dance. He has already mastered singing "Jesus Loves Me," "Sanctuary," and other kid songs! He just learned the first and last verse of "Amazing Grace." Matt and I used to sing it to him every night before bedtime and now he won't let us sing it because he wants to sing it all by himself.

About two nights ago, he was misbehaving and we had to put him in time out which is in our laundry room. Matt shut the door and about 2 minutes later he started singing "Amazing Grace" in a crying tone. Needless to say, we gave him "grace" and let him out a couple of minutes early. Boy he is only 2 1/2 and he already knows how to play you!

William is going to Preschool three mornings a week and seems to really be enjoying it. The music lady did use a jack in the box several times which caused a complete melt down by William. Lets just say he now has to sleep with a night light on and his bedroom door wide open (yes, all bc of the fear of the jack in the box). We asked the music lady not to use it for awhile since it had become such a major issue at home. She stopped using it 3 weeks ago and today I got a text from one of his teachers that said he was finally loving music day. Well of course, he now knows that the music lady won't bring the jack in the box. So I was excited that he was now enjoying music since he LOVES it at home.

Enjoy the video below of William singing "Amazing Grace."
