Hey! I'm not here to play background music!

Pete started to get fussy a little before his nap time this morning, so I decided to play piano with him. Playing or hearing the piano almost always settles him down. This time, he joined in hitting the keys for a few minutes, then leaned back against me while I practiced some things. During the next ten minutes, he got more relaxed, which let me concentrate more on the playing, which I could do with both hands in a limited way. Then I looked down and realized that Pete had fallen asleep! I had been working out a solo over a Gershwin tune, and he was happily snoozing on my lap. Nice.
