I have mentioned before my love of recorder early in the morning. Imagine my delight upon discovering the second of my offspring is now also the proud owner of one of these heavenly instruments. The junior music teacher has sent them all home to practise over the holidays. I put on some music to do the dishes this morning and my two darlings appeared by my side trying to see if they can play along by guessing randomly the notes and fingering.
And if you think the above is just such a *sweet* example of childhood whimsy, please contact me urgently about numerous babysitting opportunities that could be yours!
