Finally: a personal note. Our son attends a program called "music together" - which he adores. I haven't been to it with him, but we've played the CDs at home, which introduce the child to a variety of musical rhythms and styles in a really charming way.
In any event, one of the songs on the latest CD he brought home goes like this:
Who says they're going to come back?
Mommy does, that's who.
Whoever takes care of you comes back,
Because they love you, too.
And so on in that vein. Reassuring the child that whoever dropped them off would come back and pick them up. Whoever they are.
It struck me as . . . emblematic, somehow.
