I have spent many years acquiring children’s music that I like to listen to as well. Much of it is traditional, Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie and of course Ella Jenkins.
Lily is a master of the iphone at this point, she navigates it faster and more adroitly that most adults, must be those little fingers. She is not at all random about what she chooses to look at and it is the music library.
She has been listening to Elizabeth Mitchells wonderful rendition of “Oh Susanna” for quite awhile, but today she stumbled onto this beauty and was taken by it.
The ONLY change she made was that instead of “I’m on my way…”, Lily keeps saying,
“You’re in my way!”
Which, I often feel is the truth.
