Everyone's a critic

We were driving to town the other evening for a Christmas party and I popped Diana Krall's Christmas Songs, recently borrowed from the library, into the player. I was feeling rather festive, and the kids were quietly enjoying the music. Or so I thought.

"Is she famous?" came a small voice from the back seat.

"Mmm...Diana Krall? Why, yes, yes she is," I answered, glad Davy was enjoying the new CD.

"Well, she shouldn't be."

This from a seven-year-old who prefers the smoother sounds of Ella, Rosie, and Doris. And The Christmas Cowboy, of course (especially when he sings with Rosie).
