I have a 3yo daughter

Well -- I am officially the father of a three-year-old girl. Pretty groovy!

Among other things, we gave her one of those little kid drum kits: kick drum with a crummy plastic kick pedal, two toms that hang from the front of the kick drum, and a funny little sizzle cymbal mounted on a little black plastic rod that sticks up from the kick drum. Oh: and a little black plastic drum stool.

She **loves** it!!!! Several times a day, now, she sits at it and goes ''bang, bang, bang, bang, bang'' in pretty good 4/4 time, while singing ''La la la la la la la la la" (or something similar to that). She varies which drum she's hitting, which is a good sign. And she's generally using both hands at once, in unison. I see a **little** experimentation with hitting the rims of the drums, rather than the skins -- but maybe that's just wishful thinking.

So: maybe I'll have me a drummer, after all. :)
