This is Dance Practice (Part 3)

This is Pi Day #023.c

Do you Like Web Comics?

Hey! Me too! What a coincidence.

This is Pi Day is an independent web comic about fatherhood, running, video games, science, art, independence, integrity, imagination and just generally ... family adventure. It is created, written, illustrated, and promoted by Brad Salomons from a quiet suburb of a remote Canadian city called Edmonton, Alberta.

Looking for more pi? We regularly celebrate at the great circle of math, science and technology culture. This is Pi Day has been calculated as the product of one geeky dad, one curious kid, and an irrational volume of corny dad jokes.

New full strips are published on Saturday mornings (and shorts, appearing randomly whenever I draw them). This is Pi Day will always be free to read on this site, but if you enjoy it please help me out by sharing the link on social media or supporting in other ways.

I appreciate the effort, I really do. Dance is art. Dance is fitness. Dance is moving around a room in a way that my 40-year-old body no longer considers feasible.

Yet I struggle to find an honest balance between (a) showing blind support for everything The Girl does and (b) handing her a healthy dose of parental distance to assist her in finding the intrinsic value of doing a thing for its own sake.

No, really. That’s a thing, I’m sure of it.

This is Dance Practice (Part 1)

This is Pi Day #023.a

You reach a point in this parenting gig where the extra-curricular activities are as much for you as they are for them. I mean, sure, they’re learning new skills, belonging to a social club, being active, having fun, and all of it on your dime. But on the other hand, you get an hour to yourself to veg out on your phone while you wait to drive them back home. So… win-win?

This is Practicing (Part 3)

This is Pi Day #021.c

You can tune a piano but you can’t tuna fish.

Oddly enough, this comic comes out on “opposite day” in our musical household. Circumstances being what they are, The Girl will being accompanying her dad to HIS music lesson tonight to make sure he is the one practicing.

I asked her if she wanted to sit in, maybe jam a bit on the piano (there is one in the studio even though we only occasionally use it for tuning my violin) but her response was as expected: “No. I’ll just wait for you in the lobby…” pause… “Can I bring my iPad?”

I guess the apple don’t fall too far from the old tree after all.
