My Son, Hopeless Musician

My son has always been dedicated and hardworking when music is concerned. Throughout his school years, I would have to remind him to turn in his completed homework and return his library books. I even had to remind him to set his alarm clock each and every day for 10 years. This has always baffled me because when it came to music, he never forgot a concert, a rehearsal or his violin. As much as I loved to hear him play, I worried where he would end up when he became an adult. I guess all my worry was for nothing, because he now is a special events violinist, and does quite well for himself. He has never missed a gig, but cannot balance his checkbook to save his life. I guess everyone has their special niche, and for him, it is definitely music.
