Elephant in the House!

Oops!  I must have mistaken you for an elephant.  It's only you, Mr. Trump-et. My bad.

My son, Eli started music class two weeks ago at his school.  Fortunately, his school district was able to save their 5th Grade Music Program.  UNfortunately, parents like myself have to put up with listening to the evening practices at home.  He chose the trumpet.  He had his first practice today.  He was so stoked to bring it home.  I wasn't.  His homework assignment - practice the e note.  It was so darn cute of him to show off his new brass to me.  He was beaming with happiness and excitement.  He seemed so eager to learn more about the instrument he chose.  All smiles  and all.  What parent wouldn't admire that, right?  I'm so glad he loves it so far.  But seriously.  The noise coming out of that shiny gold instrument is absolutely dreadful!  It really sounds like I'm in the African safari and an elephant was just hunted down and now going through brutal torture.  Oh d-d-dear.  Make it stop!  LOL!
