Anyone watch Up All Night the new comedic genius show with Christina Applegate and Will Arnette? O. M. G. So the first show was a little trial and error of being serious and funny--which didn't work, but totally reflected my life so I kept going. They've fully embraced themselves and Mia Rudolph so life is good. There is this episode where they go to a kids music class and get schooled in peekaboo.
Well, I went to a music class with G$ yesterday (and a friend and her little boy--who is adorbs.) In this music class they had some "communal drums." So while we were singing some song I don't know and trying to be enthusiastic about it while no one can actually hear me sing. g is watching us tap the drum and so I take his hand and show him he can hit it... in which case I was reprimanded. "Parents, remember that we don't make our children touch the drum. That is teaching them OUR muscle memory and not letting them learn their own. We never make them do something they don't want."
At which point I tried to contain my, "Oh no you didn't" face and adequately go back to being a good parent. (that is trying to do all of the right things.)
