At least Dean was happy for the most part. Let's hope the rest of the week goes at least this well...

Oh wow, that looks crazy. You are a brave, brave woman. I'm too scared to try teaching right now.

Yikes, that would be hard! There's talk in our house about investing in a digital piano for Christmas, and if that happens, I'm sort of interested in teaching lessons. Of course, I have not factored Garrett into those considerations at all. I'm not sure I could do it.

Are there any young women in your ward who live near you? My sister has a regular babysitting job for a lady in her ward who teaches piano. She just watches the kids while their mom teaches lessons. Maybe you could do a trade...free lessons for babysitting when she's not having her own lesson. Just a thought.

You can totally make bank in NYC teaching lessons. Seriously.

As for the babysitter, well, my husband's usually here and takes Dean if needed. He's just out of town on business this week.

LOL!! I never had a sitter in the dozen years I taught with little kids at home. I felt I was runnng a Suzuki school with little ones under my feet listening to the piano lesson. Yes, you have to have understanding students and parents, and I suppose that is where I lucked out. I stood behind the student bouncing the baby a lot.

My favorite is the rock band drum set up to the chair so Dean can pound away. Mom

Actually, the chairs are a barrier to keep him from getting to the drum set. Unsupervised he usually tries to pull himself to standing and bite the rim of the drums or the cord.
