WHISTLING

with 5 comments

Are you a fan of a little whistling? a little background noise whilst someone is pottering around? or does the sound drill into your core, causing you to cover your ears immediately?

I used to be the latter, never a huge fan of the whistle, until Cosmo learnt to whistle a couple of years ago and try as I might… he can’t stop it and mostly doesn’t even notice he’s doing it… so I had to deal with it. You have to adapt as a parent and decide which battles are worth pursuing. So the whistling is pretty much always there – unless he talking, shouting, humming, screaming, of course… a veritable music box of noise.

So his whistling has become a feature of our time capsules and luckily, most of the time Cosmo allows it to be filmed.

As I was putting together our summer time capsule, the whistling kept popping up in my footage, so I figured it needed a film all of it’s own.

This is not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, I know that. It’s pretty much two minutes of continual whistling in various locations!. I love his face full of concentration, but of course, I’m biased.

If you do have the strength to watch… tell me do you recognise the tunes he’s whistling?

Have you got Summer footage that you’re not sure what to do with?… perhaps taking part in Creating Time Capsules will be the spark you need to gather up your memories and make a little film like this… All the details are here.

    we have a guy in our office who whistles. it drives me crazy, but i can put headphones on and ignore it. funny tho, i catch myself doing it sometimes when im at home… seems to only bother me if someone else is doing it :)

    I can not make out one tune though I keep feeling like I was going to get it! I remember sitting on the kitchen floor teaching my son to whistle. And the hours and hours of practice when he finally got it.I can appreciate the video!

    Soon after that we started on bubble gum and blowing bubbles….
