Abby actually told me today that she is glad she is still taking piano lessons, depending on the day of course. She is playing hymns and it is my thinking that if I sing along with her from time to time, we will figure out if I am an alto or a soprano. I am capable of both in the same breath... not good,but I sing anyways :)
A couple of months ago, she made a deal with me... 30 minutes of practice a day & a very positive piano attitude and can we pay her $3 a week? When I answered yes so quickly, she immediately raised it to $5. I filled her in on the true way to make a deal and how she needed to start high next month.
A quick learner, Abby came to me the following month and asked for $10 a week for 30 minutes of practice a day & a very positive piano attitude. We settled on $8.75 a week. I have yet to pay out any $$$, though she does have a positive attitude... I know our deal making daughter will be back...
