Unless Grampa is around, Elijah pretty much likes to be with me all the time. Practicing piano, then, can be quite a challenge because Elijah also likes to play. One day I tried this:
It worked for a few minutes at least. Elijah LOVES to go "BANG! BANG! BANG!" on anything; the piano is just more fun because it makes different noises back. This venture ended when Elijah grabbed the pen sitting atop the keyboard and started drawing all over the keys. Aaaagh, well, you let them make one mess so you can clean up another, right?
