the_child, age 11, recently expressed her fondest Christmas wish to me.

Sheet music for the piano.

You don't need me to tell you how absolutely stunningly awesome that is, but, wow.

Mega-wow.

(tiny note: Thing 1 book-jacked Mainspring the other day and began reading what he could. He gives it two thumbs up.)
