Music To My Ears

My favorite time of night is when the kids go to bed!  Disclaimer ~ it’s because not only do I finally get to breathe, but I also get to listen to Gorgeous (one of da boyz nicknames for their momma) play on her cello or piano.


Gorgeous & her Cello

The kids love music, Twin A especially, sings along in the car with a number of songs he hears on the radio.  Recently, we’ve had a few occasions at night where one of the boys has an anxiety attack and they ask for mom to play piano so they can fall asleep.  I thought that was particularly sweet.

He's so excited

He’s so excited

They always pound on the piano with us but today, they got to play on the cello!  Gorgeous got clever and started playing the “Imperial March” from Star Wars.  As you can see from the pic above, Twin B was in HEAVEN!  Fun afternoon.  Thankful for a talented wife.  🙂

    How lovely! I love that the boys call their mom “gorgeous”. My guy does the same…has called me his “Beautiful Gal” for a while now. These kids are so sweet when they express their love aren’t they?

    Love the smiles and the pics. Your family is so beautiful, inside and out. Happy Autism Awareness Day to your boys. I hope the find nothing but love out there today. 🙂

  2. Music was so important in the lives of our children. It gave my son many opportunities for social interaction in marching band, and for interaction in college in symphonic winds. He’s no prodigy, but it was meaningful to him. I hope the same for your children. I used to sing to my son in the car…that would quiet him. And we sang to him at bedtime.

    • Thanks – it’s fun to watch them ‘get into’ music a bit more. We both teach some piano at nights and I hope that they take a liking to music and find it as a constructive outlet.
