The Keyboard Porpoise

On May 12, 2009, in Kid, by Wendy

Before Izzy could stand, she used to spend hours in her bouncy-chair. She loved it. So much, in fact, that often she’d fall asleep in it without making a sound, keeling over unconscious with her hands at her sides looking like a narcoleptic porpoise caught in mid-jump. We referred to this behavior as “Porpoising.”

These days, now that she can stand and cruise where she pleases, she loves playing her giant Casio keyboard. We have a toy-piano as well, but she’s had access to the larger instrument her entire life and prefers it. For one thing, unlike the toy piano she knows how to turn the Casio on and off. It also has built in rhythms, something else she knows how to use. But like any artist lost in her craft she knows not when to stop, as exhibited here in what I call “The Keyboard Porpoise.”
