The down side of learning to listen
I can't play Tom Paxton's fabulous Going to the Zoo these days. When the title song comes on--it's the first track--Curious Girl gets quite put out and indignantly says things like "Mama!!! He say we going to the zoo! We not going to the zoo! We in the kitchen!" Depending on her mood, she stays indignant or dissolves into tears. So not much Tom Paxton in our house right now.
