Grandma's First Piano Lesson

Mom responded to my post and I thought the story was too cute to be stuck in the comments section, so...

Let's try to concentrate on what Theo can do, and not dwell on what he can't. (Yet) Children all develop on their own schedule. Just this afternoon, before Lorena came over, I had Theo on my lap and gave him his first piano lesson! As I sang Twinkle Twinkle, I played the notes on the piano. I showed him where the notes were of the first part of the song, and had him follow directions for each note. For example- Twinkle c,c( 2)Twinkle gg,(2)little a,a (2) star g (1), but I placed his finger on the note and told him how many times to play it as I sang the words, not the letters. At first he played every note 2 times, then he played "star" once as it fit the song. He did it perfectly two times! We both clapped hooray! He even tried to find the notes to the rest of the song. Some were correct,and some were all over the piano, but he was having such a good time. He's been singing the Theo song too. Going up and down the scale. T-H-E-O Theo I love you! He's such a mush. In the playground, a little child got hurt and he looked genuinely worried.
