Sometimes they melt my heart with "smushed" cookies, or home-made valentines or birthday cards. Sometimes I just want to cheer (and occasionally do!) when they finally master a new skill or a difficult piece.
And some times they just make me roll with laughter.
Today, I told a little boy that he was almost done with his primer book and would be ready to move on to the next set of books soon, and his whole face lit up.
Him: REALLY? Oh my word. If I could pass out on command, I would. Right now.Apparently time flies when you're having fun.
Him: I would just fall over backwards if I could, because I'm so surprised. It seems like I just started piano two weeks ago!
