Kids are funny. Life is funny. Why not enjoy? If you’re going to play a great musical arrangement of a poem like “1-2-3, Mother caught a flea, Flea died, mother cried, 1-2-3,” don’t just play, sing and dance it. Tell the story. Call in the doctor to examine the flea.
“Oops!” says the mother, “I think I killed it.”
“Yes,” says the doctor, “I think you did.”
