February 2, 2009
TJ and I had a talk about whether or not she was serious about wanting to continue with her piano lessons. She wanted to skip out on practising because she wanted to play on the computer. I know it's a normal "kid" thing to say, but thankfully - after our little talk - she decided that she wouldn't give up what she wants MOST for what she wanted right now. She got to work practicing a kind of tricky song - one with chords and using both hands a lot - and after a few minutes she was zipping through the song, almost laughing at her success. I hope she'll always make the choice to think about what's best in the long run, and not just what she wants in the moment.
