Just to clarify, and I realize my update might have gotten lost in the shuffle, the OP was written almost a year ago ago. It was truly a dark period in my life and perhaps DD's life as well. Putting...

We were very fortunate with DD's teacher. We knew she had good teaching skills since she runs string program at two elementary schools and it's not easy to land a job like that where we live. What...

Just a quick update. It's been about 7 weeks since DD had her own 1/16 violin and she not practices everyday but she practices throughout the day. I'm not sure how our neighbors are feeling about...

I am not especially pro- or anti-Disney. I love some of their older movies and I am a Pixar fan. Fairy tales are still too scary for DD and she doesn't care for princess things but she loves Tinker...

From 33 to 38 months, it was as if I had lost my DD. Thankfully, she is back but I was very tempted to outsource childcare to a full-time preschool. I'm glad that we got through it but I wasn't...

We didn't exactly elaborate on the spying part but I think whatever we said was too much. Just a few months ago, she'd have told us straight out that she was scared but instead, she buried her face...

So, the first lesson went well. We rented a tiny little violin for her.  I think we'll see how it goes until the end of the year.
