A new stage

Girlie performed in her first grade school play last week. She belted out the songs with gusto, and didn't miss a line on her poem, all with a huge smile on her face. This, from my gal, who has always held back a little and never been the one to take center stage.

I watched her from the audience and was completely blown away by her presence.

Not in any my kid is gonna be a star kind of way, but more in the wow my daughter is an amazing person kind of thing. She was gorgeously unselfconscious and for just a moment I was a stage mother wanting to soak in all of that energy for myself.
