One of the most important things that I do is that I refuse to play kids music at work. The Toddler room is a Wiggles-free zone. We play real music to the kids. And they start developing preferences pretty soon.
So when I came in I went to put on some music. I asked Zoe wha she wanted. "Gee."
"Beatles or Fleetwood Mac?"
"We could have the Everley Brothers."
"Or Gee for Kids."
"The Beatles are really cool."
"Gee for Kids."
"Fine, we'll put on Glee."
Next week, I gave her the choice of Beatles or Fleetwood Mac again. "Gee?"
"No Glee today. I don't feel like Glee."
Zoe thought about it, then made her choice. "Beatles." So they went on.
As she usually does, Zoe stood in the home-corner where the CD player was and listened for a moment. Then she looked at me and sighed, "It's wonderful."
