Are all preschoolers this obsessive? Someone gave us a book of Puff the Magic Dragon that came with a CD of Peter (of P, P & M) singing the old stoner tune with his daughter. Sidamo wants to read the book and listen to the CD all. the. time. Very often I'm reading him the book as the CD is playing (on repeat) in the background. At first I actually got choked up when I got to the part where Jackie Paper came no more, but now I can see how the poor kid got fed up with that rascal Puff and headed for the hills. He's a nice dragon and all, but at some point, enough is enough.
The CD actually has four songs on it, but one of them is an instrumental version of the song and another is Jimmy Crack Corn. Really? Are people still recording that one? It didn't really register with me that it's not something I want my 2-year-old listening to until I heard his sweet little voice singing about the master going away. Nix that. Since then we've only been listening to the vocal version of Puff. On repeat. Ad nauseum.
Can someone tell me precisely where Jackie Paper went? I think I'd like to follow him.
