Thank you, Patty! I can't wait for the little man to wear it. And of course, he will believe the message, I'm sure! Dave and I have talked it over, and we will gently nudge Harry away from the oboe if he ends up in band or orchestra. However, I do think that if Harry grows up seeing Mommy's love-hate relationship with the oboe, and he STILL wants to play it, that will be saying something. We'll just strike a deal...he'll make mommy her reeds, and she'll let him play this instrument!
