Wake Up Call

My son, Bubba, got a trumpet for Christmas. He loves that thing. He loves it so much, that playing it is the first thing he wants to do in the morning. Needless to say, none of us want to hear it that early. So what does he do? He takes it outside, stands on our back deck, and blows his little heart out.

"Dude," I said when I heard him this morning. "The neighbors really don't want to hear you blowing that thing at 7:00 AM!"  

"But it's great music," he said.

"Great music, or not, it's loud, and people might still be sleeping."

He shook his head. "They're not sleeping. Everyone is up for school. And if they're not up, they should be up. I'm just helping everyone get out of bed so they get to school and work on time."

How thoughtful!

    1. Yes. I'm afraid if he keep doing that, we're going to have a cranky police man at our doorstep!

  4. While he has a point, I would be the grumpy neighbor who plots Wile E Coyote ways to steal the trumpet.

  6. Hi, dear Sherry!

    Bubba's right. He's providing a valuable service to the neighbors by playing "Reveille" every morning. It saves them the trouble of settng their alarm clocks the night before! :)

    I had a drum set when I was a kid. Now I understand why all the "FOR SALE" signs went up around the neighborhood! :)

    1. Haha! I'm just glad my son didn't want to play the drums. I couldn't even imagine how much noise that would be!

  7. So sweet that he loves his instrument so much. I'm sure the neighbors aren't too happy about it at that time. I must admit though - I want to get up really early and sometimes a little help like that wouldn't hurt since I'm always getting up too late LOL
    Have a wonderful week!
    Lots of hugs,
    Beate

  18. Oh come on, Mama. He's being a thoughtful neighbor. Love it! Reminds me of summer camp when the bugle would sound off to wake us campers up! 😊👌

  19. Just teach him to play Reveille, and the neighbors will appreciate the wake up call. Right? ;)
