How sweet this is. The sound of my boy strumming his ukulele daily.

With no sounds of a parent bellowing “it’s time to go practice!”.

I  love self-directed passion.

As a mom, it’s much gentler to breathe life into a passion of my child, than to force feed what I think he ‘should’ be doing.

Ah, but then there is that issue of school homework, isn’t there?  How do I inspire passionate engagement in his academic pursuits?  

Ok, why don’t you just play me another song?

....and he's still loving it at home.

He LOVED this uke when he saw it in Kauai....and he's still loving it at home.
