Pedro’s New Toy

You will never believe what Pedro bought the other day.

I still can’t believe it – and I’ve seen it.

And heard it.

Pedro's guitar

He bought a used electric guitar.

With an amplifier.


I didn’t even know he wanted to play the guitar. This is the kid who has never played anything but his iPod.

And why an electric guitar? Why not an acoustic one?

Is this just a phase he’s going through? Like Dagmar’s horse phase, or her pirate phase?  Or will this one stick?

Will he actually figure out to play this thing? Or will it go to the attic and be one of those stories we will sometime tell our grandchildren – just like their Uncle Mark and his accordion?

Time will tell.

But for now, I have to admit that I’m proud of the fact that he wanted to learn something new, and figured out how to make it happen all on his own.

And I’m seriously considering investing in a good pair of ear plugs.

Life is never dull when you live with teenagers.
