You Can’t Always Get What You Want

The great classic rock song, You Can’t Always Get What You Want is sung often in our home. It is something of a family theme song. The children cringe when we start to sing it to them when they start whining about something that they can’t have. They even sing it to each other–which, as you can imagine, is quite annoying to the one on the receiving end. Tonight, when I was jokingly singing it to Nevin after he sneered at my request for him to take a soiled diaper out, Charis joined in with 2 words, “always get.” I just had to laugh.

  1. Gee thanks Jennifer. As I continued to surf through a few more blogs I discovered that I was humming a certain Stones tune…


  2. My parents often sang that one to me :o) It’s a good one! I’m sure our little Kate will hear her fair share of it when she gets a little older.
