Our little drummer girl
My mom was in a drum and bugle corps in high school and when I was young, she played around with drum sticks and a wooden block practice pad.
My friend Holly heard this story a few years ago and suggested I take my mom to Girls Rock Camp, an annual band camp for women and girl musicians in Atlanta.
That would have been a great idea a few years ago, but I don't think my mom would make that sort of trip now.
Soooo... I decided to bring Girls Rock to mom this Christmas. I gave her drumsticks and a modern version of her old wooden block practice pad.
If you haven't already, watch the video. Just like riding a bike.
I'm looking forward to mom picking up the drums again.
This was truly a perfect moment.
