On Sunday, my fourth grade son had a playdate during which he planned to play Halo IV and toss a football around. The boys were all playing happily down in the basement while I cleaned up the kitchen.
Then suddenly, a Christmas tune traveled up the stairs. His friend was playing our piano. He has been taking lessons longer than my boys and enjoys practicing. And it shows. He was impressive.
I yelled downstairs that I thought he was amazing.
Then I heard my son say, “You are really good. The girls are going to love you!”
…And that is how you learn what your husband is telling them to get them to practice.
