When I inquired about Calvin's *magazine* , Finn told me that he made it for Calvin. He tried so hard to replicate the old man violinist on the cover.
I mentioned a few posts back that Finn loves to watch the boring technical "how to set-up and tune your drum" section on the new Tommy DVD. He claims that he watches it so he can help Calvin put his drum set back TOGETHER each morning. However, today it seemed he wanted to use his new skills to take everything APART. Nothing escaped his wrath...the high hats, the enormous crash-ride cymbal...
Even Calvin's poor little drum head did not stand a chance. Finn is turning into quite the little techie, though he did run into some trouble with the drum key when trying to screw Calvin's drum head back on. Through tears he could barely squeak out "I turned it 100 times and it's never, never, never, never gonna be tight". sniff, sniff. gulp.
Finn can be a hopeless pessimist at times. It's even starting to rub off on normally-hopeful-Calvin, who now walks around saying " I'm never, never going to find my kitty".
So aside from the tears, it's really starting to hit me that Finn is turning into a real live boy. What is it with boys always trying to take stuff apart? If something works for me, I leave it alone. John always jokes that since I have 3 sons, I'll never have to learn to program my cell phone. It's starting to look like he might be right.
