We bought a piano!

1948177_10151978076641546_165579_nWe saw it at Costco and the first thing that attracted me was its reasonable size. We started plunking at the keys and it sounded lovely. The Yamaha salesman then informed us it’s a digital piano. Weighs just 145 pounds, needs no tuning, has a headphone jack for quiet practice and a USB port to record the music you play. Weighted keys for the feel of an acoustic piano, and a fraction of the price of a regular piano. Sounded like a win-win to me!

It gets delivered today. Now to find a piano teacher for DD. DS will start lessons when he is 5 or so.

It was kind of an impulsive buy but I always wanted to play an instrument and now I get to live vicariously through my kids.  😀 They’re both genuinely excited. So far we have encouraged sports and academics, but I don’t want the arts to get lost in the shuffle, KWIM?

Have you ever made any impulsive buys? What do you want your kids to learn?

And heck, maybe it’s not too late for me to learn!

What’s up with you? Chat away!
