I can’t help but notice that sometimes little kids know lots more than I do. Today the younger brother of my piano student, who is maybe five years old, was playing Disney games on a portable toy, but all the colorful Mickey Mouse animation kept me from recognizing what he held was an iPad. I need him to show me around his iPad sometime so I am not so easily fooled by the world around me. Not only that, last week, after my latest presentation to parents of preschoolers, it was suggested to me that I use an iPad rather than the old fashioned papers I rustle around. Maybe my new buddy could get me started.
Ah, yes, isn’t that the way, the longer I live the more I realize it is important I keep children with me among my friends.
