By Cindy Kallet and John Blodgett. Thanksgiving with relatives: dinner ready and our three-month-old hungry, too, of course! But, alas, I was not welcome to nurse him at the table, so he had his meal of thanks in the bedroom, and I had mine reheated later. The next day, talk with friends (on the other side of the family) about how we humans seem to have so distanced ourselves from our animal-ness. That night in the car, I started singing what became the first verse, and by the end of the four-hour drive home, John and I had completed the song. With stylistic acknowledgement to the totally awesome Bobs. Cindy Kallet also recorded this song on the album Leave the Cake in the Mailbox.
