money well spent

this morning, I wrote my son’s Godparents an email telling them what he’s been up to lately. You know, the usual, today was Colonial Day at school, he dressed as a General, after school he has guitar lessons and then tonight his spring band concert (he plays the sax).

I told them the story about one day last month, I waited in the car with his sister during his lesson (because otherwise it’s just a lot of work for me to keep her from banging the drums in the store while we’re inside.) He came out 30 minutes later, put his guitar in the trunk and off we went. Pretty uneventful.

Until the next week, when I walked him into his lesson and the employees behind the counter all rushed over excited to tell me hey, the stuff your son ordered last week is in. !!!! Turns out, he ordered himself a combo tuner-slash-metronome and some new music books, stuff he can use with his keyboard, sax and guitar and he’ll have for life they all assured me. I raised an eyebrow and looked over at him sideways while I handed over my credit card. 🙂
