I thought a lot about outing my two adorable boys. These kids have some of the nerdiest tendencies. I will tell you these traits come from John and are entirely his doing but I would be a lier. Yes, John and I both were in band. John however graduated out of the nerdy band and joined a really cool band ("Drive By Media" with the Pettey Brothers) I on the other hand remained a band nerd in my early high school years. John and I both love chess and we sometimes just will sit and play a game together or five. I hoped that these nerd traits would skip over the boys but they did not.
First, I will address the band issue. George and Jack love to play any kind of music. They play with their matching keyboards, Maracas, Rain Stick or train whistle. They both have so much fun together getting as loud as possible. Their love of music is not just their own homemade music but they are lovers of all music. "They Might Be Giants" kid songs is always playing in the car.
Am I concerned you might ask, in the fact that me boys love two of the most nerdiest things? I am hoping that George and Jack can bring the "cool" out in both of these hobbies.
