As I rounded the corner towards Oakley’s room to say goodnight, I noticed how unusually still and quiet things seemed. That’s when I saw this. He was sitting quietly on the floor, holding an iPad, attached to his headphones, that were snuggly placed on Hartley’s ears. Clearly, she was listening to one of his favorite songs.
And it appeared as if she was actually enjoying it.
You see, this boy is fascinated with music. He would have it playing in the kitchen, in the car, in his room or in his headphones, 24/7 if he could. He sings along, at the top of his lungs, with all the passion you’ve ever seen. So naturally, he’d want to share that experience with Hartley. It only makes sense that she would love it too, right? Well, I’m not 100% sure. Maybe she did, but there’s one thing I know for sure.
That’s how we’re meant to live.
