AK B-DAY

three tastes good

AK turned three the other day. we had a kiddie party to celebrate. then we were gonna have a grown up party to celebrate the following week, but he got sick, so he has been celebrating his b-day for about three weeks now. We really wanted this party last saturday to feel like a birthday cuss me and T were not feeling like it was. We decided to use the money that everyone gave him along with a little bit of ours to get him an electric guitar. the speaker is built into the guitar and runs on battery. there is also a headphone jack (wink) and a way to plug the guitar into the computer to record it.

baby mak on shaker!
notice babymak on the shakers!



he thinks that all electric guitars are bass guitars. he loves bass guitars but nobody sells bass guitars for kids. I tried having this conversation with him. i have been trying to teach him that bass guitars have four strings (usually) and electric guitars have six.

we go to guitar center for fun to look around sometimes. kick the tires. he loves looking at them all and has been saying "i want one, but i want one thats my size...for next time..."

so he asks if its a bass guitar and i dont want to lie to him. i tell him its an electric guitar.
"but i want a bass guitar" "they dont sell those in kid's sizes." "why not" "well...."

learning them young


i go on about how nobody aspires to be the bassist, and the lead guitar player is the frontman and all that. i felt funny saying it. and laughed when ak responded with , "oh" as he often does.

ak looves his guitar and freeked out when his finger blistered up because of playing it all day. he was understandibly upset. i think more so because he couldnt play because of the blister than his finger looking weird or hurting.

i explained callous's to him and he is now more interested in using a pic. the guitar strings are metal soo....

ak likes to take responsibility for destruction. even if he isnt responsible, like some renegade terrorist group or something.

"hey! my truck has a flat tire! dang! were gonna be late!"
"i did that dad."

the list goes on.

where did you find that electric guitar? I'm thinking Christmas present for Milo.

We need to get the boys together again for a jam session.
