Lillian had a piano recital today, her third ever. This piano thing as been a long road; she really really hated it at first, and it was really hard for her. I pretty much had to sit next to her at the piano every time she practiced and force her to do it. There were lots of tears. I was trusting in the studies that say that musicality helps develop math skills, an area where Lillian really struggles, and plus, I needed to set a precedent for the subsequent children that you WILL take piano lessons from ages 7-12, no buts. I think she has a normal amount of hate for it now and will sometimes even practice without me bugging her, if she has a song she likes.
But also, she's growing up and turning into a young woman, which freaks me out. I mean, only six more years until she can get a learner's permit.
