U Can't Always Get What U Want


Several years ago we introduced Josie to the Stones--or at least to one of their songs. If she was demanding something or other--something we could not or would not supply, John would sing a chorus of  "You can't always get what you wa-ant." He showed her a video of Themselves and she liked it a lot--our singing of it, not so much. But, of course, we continued to sing it when necessary.

I probably shouldn't have been surprised when, while we were painting one day, I said to Josie, "As soon as we finish here,  I want us to go do the word cards."

She looked up from her painting and with a meaningful little smirk began to sing, "You can't always get what you want . . ."

Such fun to realize that small child has exactly the same feelings and knowledge (which you taught her!)

In our family we would have called her a "stinkpot Magee"! Have no idea of the origins of the name, but it has persisted for generations with no explanation necessary. What a character you've got there.
