For some reason one of the big deals to me when I became a mom is seeing my boy in some kind of school concert or show. When I was young, I participated in shows and band concerts, and I’ve just been so excited to be on the other side waving, smiling, taking pictures and video, and beaming with pride.
I got my chance last night!!
Lincoln was in his very first concert, and he did awesome.
I thought for sure he’d pull his shy act or see my husband and I and run toward us, but he didn’t! He was completely professional and loving every minute of it. My cheeks still hurt from smiling so much.
In addition to a great show, I had yet another example of the miraculous things teachers do. I mean, 14 toddlers singing, clapping, staying on their line, and smiling. BRAVO! WOW!
And, yet again, I was reminded what an amazing privilege it is to be a parent and what incredible people our kids are at any age. Just unbelievable.
Do you enjoy these events? What do they mean to you?
From my family to yours, have the happiest of holidays and the best year in 2013! Talk to you next year!
