Three birthdays this weekend. First a seven-course Chinese feast, double-birthday celebration with the librarian crowd on friday. Then a barbeque-and-pizza kid birthday party at Chez dynamine. I was a little worried about gettting a two year old a 30 inch acoustic guitar (about the same height as him), but he took right to it. He was playing it lap-style, totally absorbed in strumming away, and loving the sounds he was making. We even got him to associate the word "Rock!" with the guitar and to make devil horns when people applaud his playing. So, very successful to my way of thinking.
