Okay, so it’s not *exactly* a Wordless Wednesday, but I had to write something about these drumsticks. I know that most of my readers know that my daughter has been drumming since October of last year. About 2 weeks ago, her drum teacher came to me with an update on her progress.
My 5 year-old little girl, who isn’t even in Kindergarten yet is reading music and playing drums on a 7th grade level.
::jaw dropped to the floor::
Turns out she has some talent.
Good thing I let her take the lessons when she wanted to.
She can play The Beatles “Yellow Submarine”, Joan Jett & The Black Hearts “I Love Rock and Roll” and Maroon 5 “She Will Be Loved”.
They’re my favorite pair because they’re made right here, in the USA.
But the best part of all this?
We took a private tour of her new conservative Catholic school (’cause you and I both know my kid is going to need all the discipline she can get), with the principal.
She asked the divine Miss M what she wanted to be when she grows up.
“The drummer for KISS”
I think I took the rest of the half hour trying to convince the principal that I really *am* a good mom.
Thank the Lord I’m deaf-
and for Hot Sticks Drumsticks that come in colors that match her outfits.
Because if she’s not in ballet wearing a tutu, I can at least coordinate her sticks with her ripped up jeans and leather jackets. heh.
