Whispered Sweet P in the middle of violin practice.
Yep. Today was a first for us in basically a year of learning the violin--we BOTH had fun! And though I was already having a Joyful Moment, that whisper made the Moment all the more Joyful.
And we almost didn't even have a practice! I told her it was time, she said she didn't want to, I felt the anger and grumpies rising up, so I decided to let things go and said, "Fine. I'm not going to make you practice." And then she went downstairs and talked to herself for a while. And I stayed not angry. Yay me! She came back up and told me she had a surprise for me. The surprise was that she had set up all of her violin stuff and was ready to practice! Joyful Moment!
And then she started things off by playing the best A-scale she's EVER played. For some reason, she hates playing the A-scale so she always gives it a pretty sorry effort. But today she did it fantastically well, so of course, I enthusiastically congratulated her on that and that pretty much set the tone for the rest of the practice. She tried really hard, sounded fantastic, and...
Wishing you all Joyful Moments that are just plain FUN!!!
