Demands from the backseat

I'm driving along the expressway, enjoying a minute of silence in the hectic morning when the demand is issued from the back seat.
"Ba Ba Black Sheep! Have you any wool!"
"You want music, Willa?"
"Kids sing. Ba ba...."
So I turn on the Dan Zanes CD. If you need music geared to kids that you'll probably like, check him out. There are a few songs on this particular CD where kids sing along too. I avoid purchasing the $3.99 CDs with "all the songs toddlers love" because it's just some 3rd grade class singing "twinkle twinkle" while their music teacher plays the piano. And until Willa's in that 3rd grade class, I don't need this kind of recording. But Dan Zanes does a good job at incorporating the musical midgets.
I was singing along with Song #6 (if you click on the link, you can listen to a sample of the nursery rhyme rap) and Willa scolded me: "no mama KIDS sing."
Just a glimpse into the future when my music isn't cool, and I'm just the driver.
