There are things about your family you don’t really notice, until your family gets a little bigger.
Sister Claire’s fiance Doug recently pointed out that what he first thought was a funny habit of Claire’s is in fact a habit of all four of us Luxes: at any given time, we may break into song.

Yesterday morning, as we three Cumingses (Pro Tip: Married last name does not pluralize pleasingly) enjoyed a breakfast of toast and jelly, I naturally started singing “Postcard from a Dream (Toast and Jelly)”:
Breakfast! Good morning, everybody!
The sun’s up and there’s lots of toast and jelly!
You can get it if you really want;
you gotta try hard, try hard.
