good tasteGareth has always loved music. He was ecstatic to start group piano lessons last year. Obviously, we are doing something right. I finally got around to updating and charging my ipod and putting in the car. The boys love it. Gareth likes both "kid music" as well as my music. Often, he requests "just Backyardigans". Today I had it on random though, and he listed to The Beatles, Bare Naked Ladies, and Sheryl Crow, but vetoed Justin Roberts (a kid song). Glad he's got taste. Later on, he listened to some Django. We started in on Stephane Grapelli when he realized there were no words (again). For whatever reason, he prefers songs with words, so we had to skip that one. But he is definitely on his way to good music taste.
I wanted to add one other note, and I thought it was unrelated, but then I realized it was about taste as well. Just a different kind. I am so happy this time of year. My all-time favorite fruit is in season. Finally. I discovered pluots (a cross between a plum and an apricot) just last year (maybe the year before) and they are hands down my all time favorite fruit. Happy me.
