A little bit about Rhett. It explains his drum kit request.
Rhett is a drummer. He has been since he was tiny. When he was 21 months he would set up all the Christmas tins and play drums, so all of our Christmas tins have drum stick dents. When he was almost 3 he asked Santa for bongo drums. Santa said, "I've never been asked for bongo drums." Rhett said, "How did Santa know bongo drums have two drums?"
Rhett has big plans for his life. When he is 12 he will be in a band. When he is a Dad he will be an Astronaut. If you ask him if he is going to be an artist, because of his great drawing skills he will say, "No, I'm not going to be an artist. I'll be in a band when I'm 12 and an astronaut when I'm a Dad."
So, a request for a drum kit isn't a surprise. When we go over to the Rice's, Jeremy is so kind to have the drums set up for him. He doesn't bang the drums...he actually has rhythm and plays the drums. I don't think I'm just bias, because others have said this to me. Unless, they were just being nice. We went to the drum store the other day. Rhett sat with headphones on the electric drums for a good 30 minutes. Quietly-playing-drums. It was sort of nice...for a boy who DOESN'T play quietly, because...he's a drummer. Oh, and I must tell you...just a little more bragging. The drum store worker said they spend months trying to get kids to hold the drum sticks the way Rhett was holding them.
So...yes, he is young, but he is a drummer. I really hope Santa can come through...
