Viva and I have an ongoing disagreement about the Sly and the Family Stone song, "You Can Make it if You Try." Rather than seeing it as a positive song of encouragement, Viva interprets it as some nasty cosmic joke. She insists they are singing, "You CAN'T make it if you try," and she gets really pissed when I try to explain that that is not the point of the song. It's a little early for this nihilist attitude, wouldn't you say? I wasn't expecting this until at least, say, age 6.

No, seriously. And that's all I have to say.
