Over the weekend I had a house full of giggly 8-year-old girls spend the night for my daughter’s birthday party. It was a splash/spa theme where they spent the afternoon on the water slide and then were pampered by me and a couple of my friends. They got the royal treatment with manicures, pedicures, and hair chalk while sipping out of plastic champagne glasses filled with sparkling cider.
What I didn’t expect was to get a treat in return. After practicing for half an hour or so they performed the song, When I’m Gone. All five sang and one of my daughter’s friends played the cups. It was adorable and I’ve had the song stuck in my head since so that is the song for this Musical Monday.
