    Our 5 year old grandson is staying with us for the weekend. In anticipation of his visit I bought him a police officers toy set. I didn't stop to think that a police officer would of course carry a whistle.

    Hubby is now threatening to fill that whistle with glue. [​IMG]

    Eeek, kids were at county fair this week, and one of the lovely rides gave them plastic whistles, then the health department had little book bags for kids with bandaids and safety whistles, and then got cowbells for "riding the bull." Eeeeekkkk, suddenly they have all gotten lost, wonder what happened? The police whistle then could always reappear before going back home to parents. [​IMG]

    Quote:I've been threatening to get him a drum set for Christmas for the past two years, but DH and the parents always told me that he was too young.

    He's not too young anymore. [​IMG]

    Little Ricky was an accomplished drum player by age 5. Your GS just needs to practice. Lots and lots of practice. [​IMG]

    Certainly. Most artists need their own personal environment to reach perfection.
