Not that I'm chomping at the bit (or the reed) to start playing again--I'm enjoying my newborn too much--but I was wondering how long some other oboe mommies out there waited before getting back to playing. I'm taking November and December off from CRSO, and my next set is mid-January. Pre-baby, I thought I might start practicing again a week or two after he was born. I even thought I'd play while he slept (across the hall, might I add), and he would get used to hearing oboe and English horn. Let me say now: ha!
Sooooo....seriously. Should I start things slowly? When? I have absolutely no motivation to practice at this point, but I'm worried that all of a sudden, it will be Jan. 15 and rehearsals start on the 16th. A nice belated baby shower gift? Reeds! ;)
