I woke up because I heard a child singing. It was a Sint Nicolaas song. The voice sounded clear late at night. It knew all the words and I decided to join.
Suddenly my son stood in front of my bed and asked: "Mom will you sing with me? I already put your shoe in front of the chimney."
Yes I wanted, so he jumped on my bed and we both sang all the Sint Nicolaas songs we knew together.
It was a special moment since my son never sang and now suddenly did, although he came to the age there was no need to do so any longer.
"You have a great voice", I told him. "You think so, he asked.
" Well I do have a hard time to sing the high notes". After that was said he left, turned of the lights and went to bed.
