Patience is a Virtue

Last night was the second lesson for one of my piano students. It was the second lesson for a 4-year old, so its bound to be a little unnerving but because Brynnlee was a maniac that made it just that much worse.

Lately she has been crying ALL the time. What happens between 15 and 18 months? I think kids just go crazy. At least mine do. I remember Kaden going through this and already being pregnant. All I kept thinging was "What have I got myself into?"

So basically last night Brynnlee screamed at the top of her lungs while I tried to hold her as she flailed about and give instructions to a patient little girl on the proper fingering postitions for this weeks assignment: SUPER FUN.

Hopefully Jeremy won't be detained at work next week... I think I'm about filled to capacity on my 'patience building experiences'.

Heather, I too am constantly struggling with patience. I admire you for teaching piano to such a young pupil, that to me shows tremendous patience!

I have finally figured out that you have a blog, sorry it took me so long. Way to go with the piano lessons. Conner should be starting his in the next couple of months.

I had no idea you taught piano! Don't you love those moments when you cannot stop what you are doing so you just have to do it with a screaming child? Those are the best!

Everytime you write a blog about Brynnlee, it drags me back in time, to Tia's energetic toddler years! Call me if you ever need to vent! I definally don't have any answers, but I "have been there done that"!
