Striking the perfect pitch
I really was considering writing this under the Products We Love section of this site, but this product happens to be almost as old as me. When I was a kid my dad bought my mom, himself, and me this harmonica. I don’t even remember why really.
But I've still got mine and dug it up at my parent's house recently. It was such a welcomed discovery because Miah is one kid who needs a lot of entertainment, interaction, and varied play. And nope I have no idea how to officially play the harmonica. I blow out a few tones and breath in and out. Originally Miah was only slightly intrigued but last week she was mesmerized.
So here is where there should be a photo of her bemused face, how relaxed and appreciative she looked. But I’m happy to report in the world of instant posts and cell phone cameras, I wanted to live in the moment of her reactions. She curled up on my tummy, sighed, and listened to my improvised playing. She looked at me with so much adoration for each sound. Most importantly, she was still. I was in disbelief because moments like this don’t happen very often and I took it all in especially considering that, as I mentioned before, I don’t know how to play this thing!
There was such a magical feeling to how her little being took in that time we had, which didn’t require a selfie but yes, a later blog post!
It’s sometimes hard to remember how important it is to just shut everything off.
