"Dad I Want a Piano"

"Dad, Dad, Chloe, CHloe!"

That was the sound that woke me up at 5:30 this morning.

Thinking there was a serious problem that had sent him running into my room at that time, I jolted immediately upright.

"What's the matter?" I asked.

"I've had an idea!"

"What, son?"

"I could ask Santa for a Piano or a keyboard for Christmas then I can make my own songs like Justin Bieber and Greyson Chance."

"That's a good idea, son." I told him. "Do you want to get in bed and get back to sleep before morning?"

"Yep!" he said and jumped in - shortly followed by the dogs!

He's feeling a bit inspired at the moment. He's been a Bieber fan for ages now and then a month or so back my sister (who is very musically gifted and a great pianist) told him that Justin plays the piano. Add to that the video he saw on Youtube of young Greyson Chance (who was 12 or so at the time of the video I think) covering Lady Gaga's Paparazzi, and he's been feelin' the piano for a while. Then Greyson's debut single premiered on Ellen the other night and he watched that on Youtube before bed last night. And now he wants to be Greyson Chance AND Justin Bieber and if that means learning the piano then that is what he will do lol.

So I think we know what he'd like Santa to bring this year - much to my sister's absolute delight.

Wow I can't believe we're thinking Christmas already!

I hope you do get him at least a keyboard. That will do until he decides he really loves it. And then there is nothing like an acoustic grand. Oh I miss having one to play so much.

The younger the better - before school teaches them "I can't" because they're afraid they won't do it perfectly the first time they try.

Thank you Gail.

I think Santa will be sorting something out for him :)

So you play then?
