This morning in the car I put on “Fibber Island” from They Might Be Giants first children’s album. Brenna began rhythmically chanting “no. no. no. no. no.”

“Brenna, what are you saying no about?”
“no. no. no. no. no.”
“Is it the music?”
“Do you want to listen to something else?”
“Do you want night-night music?”

So we listened to Vivaldi instead.

I don’t know if I should be upset or proud. It’s a very confusing feeling. On one hand, she dissed my favorite band. On the other hand, she requested classical music.

    Oh my goodness–she is you! I remember back when a song would come on the radio that had only music and you would say” that song has no words”. Then you joined band in 5-6th grade and a whol;e new world opened up for you. Not only marching music, but symphonic? music as well. As you appreciate all kinds of music–so will your children through you and Meg. I suppose that comes from both sides of our families–as we all love and appreciate all different styles of music. Yea!! A good thing. Love you all.
