Oh My Freakin' Ears.

Honeybee has picked a word for the day: "Loud". At irregular intervals all day long, she has been yelling out "BAH!"at varying levels of  fortissimo. Following each "BAH!", she has exclaimed to me with a seemingly sincere surprise "Mommy, that's loud!"  In addition, she has discovered that her play-kitchen  pots and pans are loud too.  She has been, for the past hour, alternating between banging the pots and pans and Bah!-ing.  A moment ago she was clanging the pans together (curse me for thinking that stainless steel toy pots and pans were a good idea):

"FASTER!!!!" bang,bang,bang,bang,bang,bang,bang,bang,bang,bang,bang!
"SLOWER!!!!" baaaannggg, baaannngggg, baaaangggg!

"FASTER!!!!" bang,bang,bang,bang,bang,bang,bang,bang,bang,bang,bang!
"SLOWER!!!!" baaaannggg, baaannngggg, baaaangggg!

At least she has a good sense of tempo. 

"WOW Mommy! That's LOOOOOUUUUUUD!!!"
"Yes baby, now how about quiet?"


As a musician, I should really be encouraging all this musical exploration right?  Letting her find her voice? 

Oh for Pete's sake!

Now she is on top of the coffee table, arms up like Evita and "singing".

Is this what she thinks I sound like when I sing Disney songs to her in the car?

Darling baby, could you have picked a day when I don't feel sick to do this? No of course not. 
You are my child.

PS. Honeybee, just looks over my shoulder and points to the picture and says " HAHA! Mommy funny!"

I remember the first tiny 1/10 violin and the screech, scratch, screech, scratch, that fortunately grew into beautiful melodies.

Yup Mom, That little violin has been making more appearances in tiny hands as of late.
