This song was the first non-nursery song that my little girl loved. As we drove to school, I’d play it and she would sing along lustily and happily, fudging the words as only a 2-year old can.
It’s 4 years later and she doesn’t even remember liking this song, which makes me wistful; she looks at me as though I’m nuts when I play it for her, hoping to nudge whatever it was inside of her that loved this song so much she would ask me to play it over and over and over. Now it means way more to me than it does to her; it will always bring up an image of her in her carseat, wearing her gold parka from Old Navy, singing on her way to school.
