Kitchen Music

The other day, my daughter and I were making cookies.  My daughter was in charge of operating the mixer.  She began at a low speed and then moved up to a higher speed.  In the process, she started a little rhythm.  She played around with it and started bobbing her head.

Hmm. I thought. This could get interesting. I grabbed a wooden spoon and started my own rhythm on the mixing bowl.  We had a real groove going.

Then my son came in.  Of course he wanted to get in on the action, so he grabbed a couple of stainless steel spoons and started clanging them together.  It was complete cacophony.

"Bubba, what are you doing?" my daughter asked.

"Same thing you are," he said.  "Making noise!"

    1. Actually, I think Bubba may have a musician gene. I think our "music" wasn't exactly music to his ears!

  2. I agree with, Alex. Spoons clanging together is way hard on the ears.

    1. It sounded like the Blue Man group, or maybe Stomp. ;0)

  3. I guess Bubba won't get in the Guinness Book for Best Rhythm Artist.

  10. Music is in the ear of the one who hears it. I guess bubba didn't inherit that trait from you like his sister did.

    1. Yes. I think the cup song was probably way better than our kitchen mixer - spoon rendition!

  14. I can't have music in the kitchen. I barely know what I'm doing as is. If I have music, I'll be more concerned with a concert than whatever I'm supposed to be doing.

    1. Hahaha! I don't know what I'm doing, either. I've been trying to figure it out for the past 20 years. ;0)

  15. LOL, I guess music is in the eye of the beholder, too ;)

  16. When my son was young, my life was pretty chaotic. I ended up divorcing his father when he was four. There really weren't many moments like this. It sounds like fun.
    Now that my son is an adult, we sometimes cook together.

  22. Haha, I think as long as they're having fun.,noise or music, it doesn't matter. Unless it rocks the neighborhood then wooden spoon for Bubba in the meantime. :)
