I have decided to do a series of mini-posts on things that I learn or re-learn about parenting while in Maine. Today, on “things you should already know about parenting,” Ashley makes a discovery about bringing a two-and-a-half year old into an instrument store.
Pro tip #1: Don’t bring a toddler into a drum shop and somehow expect that they won’t want to touch everything in sight.
Pro tip #2: If you are brave enough to enter a drum shop with a toddler, make sure you have lots of energy that day for redirecting.
On a not completely unrelated note, sound-proof drum lesson rooms are great for subsequent temper tantrums when redirecting just isn’t cutting it.
He does make an awfully cute and enthusiastic little drummer boy, though 🙂
