Saint Lavs


I am officially convinced that my mother MUST be a saint (or, at the very least, has a spot saved in heaven just waiting for her)!!!
i called her this evening on the phone, only to be met with the sound of a recorder being played - and trust me, there is NO mistaking the sound of a recorder. i, of course, asked her about it... apparently Liam was practicing his "Hot Cross Buns." Over and over and over, from the sounds of the 5-minute phone call we had. she wasn't complaining, or discouraging him, or making fun even. trust me, this alone should qualify one for sainthood!!! :) such a good gramma lowie.

awww. He did play HCB over and over, even in the car on the way to tutoring. But I can't destroy his little musical soul (unlike his mom, who told him he can't practice the recorder in the house).

btw, does EVERY child in the world start recorder training w HCB? Are there any OTHER recorder songs?

HCB is a classic - i seem to remember butchering it on the violin as well... :)

I too butchered it on the violin. Sadly, there's nothing easier, but count your lucky stars mom, it's less annoying then having to hear chopsticks for hours on end.
