Happy (almost too late) Waldorf Wednesday and HAPPY SPRING!!!!
Although you would never know if from the snowflakes that have been dancing around here today. *grump*
I said on Facebook we’d be up “later today” and this is much later than we thought.
But you see, our day went like this:
Late wake up (because we didn’t get home from the theater until after 11 and everyone was still awake!)
Out for doughnuts (because… well, you don’t need a reason to go out for doughnuts, do you)
An impromptu trip to the Children’s Museum to celebrate Mr. Rogers’s birthday
Weekday Church School
Trying to figure out how to set up my cool new phone
So we really haven’t had a ton of time for blogging today!
And now it’s 9:00, but it’s still Wednesday so we’re good.
Daniel had his big debut last night and he was amazing! I will admit that there was this moment when he stepped out on stage that I thought “Oh my gosh, I’m a terrible person. What kind of mother sets her kid up for failure like this? Why did I ever put him the position of having over 2000 grown ups depend on him not to mess this up?!?”
Except there never, ever was any such danger. Daniel has been amazing through all this, loving the experience and the music and the people. And I would like to think he’s been given a glimpse of being part of something larger than himself, and what a beautiful gift that is, especially at such young an age!
One thing that has amazed me is how he has reacted to the music and lyrics, despite them all being in Italian. At the audition, after the aria, he ran to me and whispered in a very serious voice, “Mama, I did not understand a thing she said.” But he’s also reacting to the singers’ actions on stage, showing concern and curiosity and love.
So you see, there was never any question of him failing. Not when he was having so much fun.
So… I’ll leave this topic with some amazing pictures of my little star as well as a video of his interview at the Artist’s Circle last night.
