My oldest has his head on straight. Mikko at nine cannot be taken in by tomfoolery.
I was singing my kids this Johnny Flynn song as a lullaby:
(Side note: Alrik, age 5, asked for "Wrecking Ball" to be next.)
"'The water sustains me,'" Mikko quotes. "What is that supposed to mean?"
Well, I say, it could be twofold: Water gives life, and it also holds you as you float. It's maybe a song about letting go and letting the water support you.
"I don't like floating," Mikko says. "I don't like that feeling of leaning back in the water."
