"My little guitar."

Eric surprised the girls with ukuleles. They both call them "my little guitar" and just give us a what-in-the-world-are-you-saying look when we tell them that they're really ukuleles. Oh well. They both love them, and Kenna especially tries so hard to play hers.

When she finally gets tired of playing, she'll hand the ukulele to me and make a song request, most often "Old McDonald," with complete expectation that I'll play it for her. Unfortunately, she doesn't understand that I don't know how to play the ukulele, or a little guitar for that matter. She is happy though if I just get the basic tempo of the song right and sing along loudly enough to make it seem like I'm actually playing whatever it was she requested.
