About a year ago, David added a harmonica to Goen's bucket of toys. Of course, back then Goen had no idea what a harmonica was or what to do with it (other than throw it). With time, and after watching us play some music with it, he started to experiment with blowing and sucking into the harmonica. Sometimes he would blow through the back side and no sound would come out. Other times he would blow through the front and be rewarded with noise. For quite a while it was pretty random which one it would be, front or back. Then he started to figure out that only one side made noise and he would turn it around if nothing happened. As he grew older and wiser, he was able to see which side to blow through before trying it out. Then came the day when he figured out that he could get different sounds by moving it from side to side in his mouth while blowing and sucking. Now, at twenty months old, he has become fond of a new game. The rules are few and simple. When he makes music on the harmonica, I am to run and dance around the living room until he stops. That's pretty much it. While it's not my favorite game, I must say that I love that he enjoys playing music on his harmonica and bouncing to his own rhythm while I dance and spin with him. And who knows, maybe one day he will become a professional harmonica player. And all because I agreed to dance around the room with him.
Hi. My name is Carley. I love to sew, craft, and create. As a Jane-of all-crafts so to speak, I enjoy sewing, writing, cooking, drawing, photographing. But the constant thread (if you'll excuse the pun) throughout my weeks is needle arts.
