What's the Story in Balamory

Abby likes music. Radio, TV, the doorbell - she doesn't care. She'll start dancing.

She's been singing the sound of the doorbell as well. It sounds like a grandfather clock just before the chimes begin.

Now she's finally singing words. For some reason she sings the beginning to the theme song of the BBC children's programme Balamory. She never watches the show. Even Aidan never watches the show. But he started singing the theme all the time and she's picked up on it.

So now she sings, very loudly, and over and over, "Ba-la-mo-ry."

I am wondering why you are surprise.Your side of the family tree takes after Dad. A preacher and worship leader...why not.

She does also try to sing "I Could Sing of Your Love Forever" by Delirious?, but she can't form the words. Aidan, on the other hand knows all the words to that and most of the other songs on the CD.

I watch Balamory occasionally. Admittedly not since Abby started school, though :-)
