El classico

I inherited an iPod classic this week. I remember getting my first iPod...the way it felt in my hand, the smoothness of the click wheel. It was really amazing to see this little thing hold so much information.

This one is probably a 5th or 6th generation. I need to go back and check the serial number to be sure. But, just like the day it was shipped, it charges and plays whatever I put on it. I'm looking forward to getting to know this little guy.

I've got an old Guild acoustic guitar that M likes to take out now and then. She loves music and singing and dancing, which has transferred to her younger sister. She's also fiercely independent, which means I'm not allowed to show her how to hold it.

I think that's been one of the more difficult aspects of parenting: letting the little things go. I want to show her how to do things but I run the risk of doing that at the expense of her experiences and play. She'll be ready, one day, to learn how to play. And if she doesn't, that's okay, too.
