Music: Start 'Em Young
I had my great nephews over today....I'm exhausted! I showed my older great nephew (B) the rudiments of drumming (can you imagine THAT, LOL!) and he actually had a good sense of rhythm! I also taught how to do the C chord (the easiest one on the uke) and I sang Frere Jacques along with him while he strummed, LOL! I have an old candlestick phone with a rotary dial that works and those kids are simply fascinated by a rotary dial phone!!! B was so interested that I could change the batteries and clean the terminals on my poor old Lighting McQueen plastic car; he watched in utter fascination as I made it "talk" again. I am so NOT mechanical (and it's a big family joke) but I felt like Go-Go Gadget because I could figure out how to get the sucker talking again! I felt like a genius! LOL! Trying to think of things to do with a 5 year that don't involve planting him in front of a TV is very challenging! He's not a coloring book type of boy! Phew, I'm exhausted!!!! I need a nap!
