Dolly takes on Emeli Sande

I have been listening to Emeli Sande's album a lot in the car recently, and Dolly never fails to give me a running commentary on what she thinks of her, from the back seat.

Here are a few examples:

Emeli:   How you ever gonna find the sea?
Dolly:    That's easy - I have found the sea lots of times!

Emeli:   I'll move the mountains for you
Dolly:    That's very naughty of her to move mountains, isn't it Mummy. She shouldn't be doing that.

Emeli:   I'll be your river
Dolly:    She can't be a river, she's a lady. Why does she think she is a river? Silly lady!

Emeli:   I'll be your clown
Dolly:    I don't like clowns

Emeli:   I wanna sing, I wanna shout, I wanna scream til the words dry out
Dolly:   But she is singing. And she's shouting too. Why does she think she's not?

Emeli:   At night we're waking up the neighbours...
Dolly:    That's not very nice - poor neighbours - they must be tired

Emeli:   Then we're breaking all the rules
Dolly:    It's very naughty that she's breaking all the rules - I don't break the rules, I am good

I fear for Emeli Sande if she were ever to meet Dolly...

Without wanting to be, Dolly is a stand up comedian. She must provide you with hours of entertainment. That's what's so great about a kid this age.

Hi Irene, she really does unwittingly entertain us, the entire time! I love this age :) xx

That's very funny.

I haven't heard any Emeli Sande (clearly she hasn't made it to New York "lite rock" radio stations). Will have to try her out.

My kids don't often comment on the car music, but the other day Littleboy1 told me to turn up the Bangles "Manic Monday" because he liked it.

ooh I am so pleased that Dolly would never dream of annoying the neighbors apart from when maybe she'll turn into teenage monster and play heavy metal. Until then enjoy her she sounds adorable!

Thanks for making my hour bubbly while reading you blog post. I was greatly entertained with your blog post. That conversation makes you somehow forget your little problems and worries in life. And that’s what I need for now. So again, thanks a whole lot! Have a blessed weekend! Ciao!
