My little one turned one a few days ago. And, she got this caterpillar that makes music. She loves it. You press a button on it’s back, and it makes music. She giggles, smiles a big smile and moves her little body as the music happens. All I hear is ding, ding, DING, ding, you know. I mean, noise right? Well, my older daughter comes in and notices the new toy right away. She presses a button and has a look of recognition on her face. “Oh, it has a melody. She nods her head with the music and then starts to sing, “Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you….” I stare at her in confusion. I tried to so hard to see how the hell she could figure out the musical melody and sing along with it. The music and the song simple DO NOT match to me. Ah, the mysteries of the hearing world 🙂
A Melody You Say?
