It's Over

The stage was set. Everyone was in her place. Their names were announced...then the music started and I stopped breathing. (I was nervous.) Yes, I'm talking about the talent show. My daughter smiled and bounced through the entire dance. She looked like she was having the time of her life. The girls wore pink poodle skirts (courtesy of Lola's mother), black body suits and high pony tails in their hair. They did the dance perfectly. I couldn't have been happier with the outcome.

Overheard: Walking toward the auditorium...an 8 year old girl asked her mother "Will we be the best?" Her mom answered. "It's not about being the best, it's about having fun." I hope she was being honest with her daughter and didn't answer that way for my benefit (since I was well within earshot and she knew it).

Btw, my daughter later admitted to having a great time on stage. I can't help but wonder if she'll join the choir or drama club in high school.

I would think more than likely, considering that you are talented Joyce-Anne.

Glad everything went well for you girls.xx

Congrats on a job well done. I do hope she had the time of her life and maybe a love of performing.

Natalie- My oldest does sing. But, believe it or not, the younger two children are very talented for their ages.

Tara- Thank you. It's as if she became a different person on stage. As for the future, only time will tell.

What an exciting moment! I'm sure I would have held my breath as well :)

That's wonderful your daughter had a great time. Talent certainly does run in her genes :)
