I’ve been singing You Are My Sunshine to Abi since she was born, nearly every day (in addition to many, many others – including The Only Living Boy in New York and If I Had a Hammer – songs I really used to enjoy) . I’ve got it down pat, once more with feeling and warbling inflections galore. She is quick to tell me what song she wants to sing and it’s never that one. Didn’t even know she knew it. But last night, waaaay past her bedtime and trying to get her to sleep, I sing the first the first verse and pause before the last word like I do with most of the other songs we sing. And **poof** she sings the word sunshine. We continue on with the song…and she knows the last word of every line without me having to prompt her. Huh, she really is paying attention.
