I sincerely hope that my readers find at least some pleasure in reading about my son's first steps in Music. (even though I am well aware of the fact that posts like that can excite just a small crowd of readers out there and most likely those who have similar experiences with there kids).
Anyway, here goes another story.
Yesterday before I picked Troy up from my mom's, we sat down for a cup of tea.
It was not long before Troy said "Mama", pointed at me, and sang :a-a-a-aaaa-a, while waving his arms in the air as if conducting the orchestra. We both laughed and then my mom said:" I think he is asking you to sing."
So I sang one of our operetta favorites, that lively and very funny Duet of Boni and Stasi from Kalman's Silva. Of course, he was listening with all his attention, smiling in a happy dreamy way.
As soon as I finished, he started clapping.
It was funny and touching at the same time.
P.S. I would recommend that duet to anybody who is listening/singing with their little ones. The piece is genius. Besides the super-catchy music, it gives room for a lot of acting that you can do with your voice or with you body (unless you are driving of course).
