This is the Life

Tonight as I was playing my ukulele, Toby (age four) came in the room and asked if he could play music with me. I told him of course he could. I asked him to bring one of his instruments. He left and came back with his soccer-ball-shaped guitar and joined me as I was playing “Nothing but Flowers” by the Talking Heads. I showed him how to sing the “You’ve got it, you’ve got it” parts. He laid down behind me and sang along with my uke playing and out-of-tune singing while he strummed open chords on his out-of-tune guitar. After we finished the song, he said: “Wow, this is the life: laying down and playing music with your favorite person.” Indeed.

    Oh, this is sweet. I will have Brian read it as he is waiting for this day to come with Lydia.
