After doing a couple of errand things, we said we had one more stop to make. Little did Ian know that it was at a music store called the Rock Shop. As we walked in and told the guy behind the counter that we were there to look at guitars, Ian's eyes kept getting bigger and bigger and bigger. As did his smile. :)
This is the face of a boy who has just realized that he is getting a guitar for his 10th birthday. He couldn't stop smiling. And frankly, neither could I. :) We showed Ian his options....and the $3999 electric base WASN'T one.....and it took him all of 3 seconds to chose his guitar. He knew that it was the right one.
So for this birthday, we chose to make an investment. An investment in Ian's future as a great guitarist. One that we know he can fulfill. He already spends time in his room practicing the cords he's learning. (guitar lessons provided by a friend of ours) I'm so proud of him.
One of my favorite moments of the day was when Ian said to me...."Mom......(yes, he slipped back into MOM)....you made my dream come true. Thank you." You're welcome Ian. Thank YOU for making my dream come true. I love you!
