The sadness of classical music

While we were schooling, i had the tv off, but i had youtube on. I had it on an all classical channel that played nonstop classical music from a playlist. After about an hour, my daughter says to me, "Can't you play something else?". I told her, "Classical music is great! Without words the composer can make you feel good, or even cry!"

So she started crying. Immediately. Seriously. It was as if i dealt her an emotional blow!

Rocking, hugs, and a million kisses later, she calmed down.

The joys of parenthood.

I love classical music, especially the violin and piano. But she didn't start crying till i mentioned crying! That's the bad part! lol
