(don’t) whistle while you work

Lola Gray came home from her first day of school and said there are two things she hates about first grade. She can’t wear her red shoes and she isn’t allowed to whistle. Oh man. That whistling thing is going to be tough. This kid whistles all the time. She promised to hold it in as best as she can at school (though most of the time she doesn’t even seem to be aware that she is doing it!) and I told her she can whistle all she likes at home.

The video below is a little whistle concert she gave me to get out some of her pent up whistles from the day. This has been the soundtrack to my summer, and as much as the whistling drives me crazy sometimes, I really miss her sweet bird song now that she is back at school!

  1. wow, i didn’t know she was such a whistling protege! put an instrument on the end of that whistle, and i’ll bet they’ll want to hear her (at the right time, of course). love the red shoes but i’ve always heard they crack down in 1st.

    • You know, I hadn’t thought about trying her on a wind instrument! Not a bad idea at all. Thanks! 🙂

    • And I agree about the red shoes, but oh well. I went out today and bought a pair of plain navy t-straps and a pair of solid white Keds.

  2. Love it!
