I caught my child in what I believe to be their very first lie yesterday. It went something like this:
Me: Zachary, what are you doing
Zachary (finger deep into nose): Nothing!
Me: What are you doing with your finger?
Zachary: Nothing (moving finger towards mouth)
Me: Zachary…..(said sternly, while I reach for his hand)
Zachary: No Daddy!
A touching moment, yeah? Glad I could document this for future reading. I’m sure he’ll appreciate it.
Song time. I’ve been meaning for almost a year now to post a song by a Brit band called Field Music. A few months ago, I posted a song sample by Matt Pond PA, a chamber-pop outfit based on the east coast of the U.S. This is fairly similar, if not a little richer. There isn’t much info on them on the internets other than what’s to be found on Wikipedia, but the basics are that they’re an English group fronted by two brothers, who seem to break up the band and put it back together now and then. But I’ll tell you what, the music is excellent. Very full sounding, chamberesque and beautiful. Check out “Trying to Sit Out” and turn it up a little……it’s not a loud rock song, but sounds gorgeous with a little power behind it. And Frank P, you’ll love this one. Promise.[audio:sit.mp3]
