I was getting Button ready one morning, patiently brushing all the tangles out of her “boings.” To pass the time, I started playing a game with her where I would sing a portion of a song from a TV show or movie she loves and ask her to guess the character who sings that song. So, it went something like this:

“A whole new world. A dazzling place I never knew…”

“Um, Aladdin!”

“That’s right. Okay, try this one: ‘Under the sea, under the sea! Darling it’s better, down where it’s wetter, take it from me!”


“Right! Okay, try this one: ‘Bippity Boppity Boo!'”

Button smiled knowingly. “That’s easy! That’s my Fairy GrandMicki!”
