The Musical

Tis the season, starting this week, and throughout the next 3 weeks are such activities such as preschool, swimming, skating and gymnastics. We are all very excited about them all. But, what about music? Tapping into that hidden talent we all think our children have, you know, with visions of Harry Connick Jr. on the stage, only in the form of your child.

We have the solution!!

Sydney the Not-So-Wonderdog : The Muscial

Phooey on hiring some fancy-ass musician to take your protege to the next is the secret. Spend $1 on a harmonica at Dollorama. Bring them home and under very intricate scrutinizing just to get those notes absolutely pitch perfect, practice for hours and hours, until your mommy's head is about to fucking explode, and then let the dog join in.

We are so headed to Broadway.

Here is the intro:

And then make sure to practice, OH. SO. MUCH. MORE. You know, cause the Tylenol jar is empty and you just HAVE TO GET IT RIGHT.

I bring you, The Finale:

Take a bow. Gracefully exit the stage, and shatter all of your Mommy's current dreams of buying pianos and guitars.

The End.

Oh. My. Word. That is soooo funny. Found you through Antique Mommy and I love your dog. My dog does that too, but with much longer, more legato phrases. (Read: he howls).

Love it. Now I've gotta check out the rest of your blog!

Hey, if they are that good at harmonicas, they will probably enjoy slide whistles, kazoos, and a "saxo-flute"! See
Add a few maracas, tambourines, and coffee can drums, and you'll have marching bands for years to come!

Aaaaaah! I have gotten quite a few tension headaches from "concerts" like that. Thank goodness mine are in school right now and the house is quiet.

Okay, I thought the harmonica at our house was driving me batty but at least there are no animal accompaniments! Oh my.
