One weekend, we brought the kids out for dinner. After dinner, our daughter a toy acoustic guitar while our son asked for a water gun.
Kids being kids, they wanted to play with each other’s toys…anyway, we ended up buying another water gun.
The acoustic guitar?
Interestingly, my robot-Lego-b-Daman-Transformers crazy kid kept himself busy fiddling with the tuning pegs, the strings and did a bit of strumming.
Since I am *always* busy with cooking, cleaning, laundry or homework, I was just relieved to see him having a nice, relaxing time.
Surprise, surprise…he came running excitedly into the kitchen while I was stir-frying a veg or something:
“Mummy, mummy! Look, I can play ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star’ ” on the guitar!”
True enough, he plucked out the song on the little, toy guitar
I thought that was really cool – one of my colleagues shared with me that he’d taught himself how to play the guitar when he was teenager.
Hmm…maybe it’s time for an early investment in a fender acoustic guitar for the budding rock star?
