My daughter sings. A lot. She’ll repeat simple phrases that explain the world: about the color of her crayons, a new experience, or how she feels about a person. She’ll do all this without thought—and without realization that someone might hear her.

Not intended as a public performance

She will also use song to narrate memorable…

I’ve never met the Muffin Man, but I’ve heard the stories. There was a kid a couple years older than me, but in third grade, who said he wasn’t scared of the Muffin Man, and snuck into his house on Drury Lane. The next day at school he wasn’t there, but there was a single muffin sitting in his chair. We never saw him again.
