The Child Knows Better :)

There is a poem by the Russian poetess Agniya Barto (translation from Russian):

“What is the howling? What is the crying? Isn’t it a herd of cows? No, it is not a cow, our Tanya is the one who is crying…”

We were reading this poem together with my two-year old daughter but instead of “Tanya” I said “Dasha” (my daughter’s name). But her answer was, “No, those are mum and granny who are the ones who are crying!” “And who are you?” I asked. “I am Ganapati Deva!”
