M is amazing.  Piano is going really well.  She's watching the sound of music for the first time.  It's the first time I've let her watch a "love story".  I'm so glad for her to see this example of people falling in love with people who are good.  Rolf and Leisle have a young love.  But Rolf doesn't know who he is yet.  And then he chooses to follow someone evil.  Herr Von Trap is the romantic lead because he is willing to give up all his earthly possessions to keep his family from the evil of Hitler.

At home M was telling me that J has a python. She then went on about how if we had a python we could keep it until it got too big. Then we could let it go outside. I gave her an ear-full about people who are bad pet owners and release lethal animals into the wild. Then she said "J's snake felt a little bit like plastic..." I think she thought I was trash talking J

Digital Piano Win

This morning I walked into the kitchen and heard the beautiful sound of silent keys.  M was already awake and practicing with the headphones in.  I love that girl.  I love that she can practice anytime silently.
