The other day I walked in on Bria and Chloe playing a game together. This, in and of itself is blog worthy, because there was no screaming, arguing, or tattling going on. Bria wasn't even rolling her eyes at her little sister for wanting to play something totally childish like she usually does. Amazing as that was, I was actually more intrigued by what they were playing than I was impressed with how they were playing.
The game was obviously Chloe's idea, as it usually is (she is the leader personality around these parts...often more so than even her parents are, unfortunately). She was telling Bria to play an instrument while she conducted her. Then she'd cut her off and have her pretend to play a different instrument for a while.
Chloe's conducting skills were pretty noteworthy, and I was quite astounded at both Chloe's knowledge of the instrument names and Bria's ability to mime each of them. I heard all of the following instruments:
And they may have used others before I came in.
Yeah, they don't have musicians for parents or anything.
