If there is one thing I am THRILLED to have not passed on to my children,
it would be a fear of the spotlight!
It took me YEARS to overcome that, and even still, it lingers.
I'll just say that when I was a kid, there's NO WAY I could have done what my kids are doing ...
And I am so happy for them!
Here are some of the fun performances we have had this Christmas ...
The girls doing the hula at our church Christmas Party:
The Boy HAMMING it up at his Preschool Program:
(I'm pretty sure he pulled out his imaginary gun and scope for this ... oh dear)
(I better warn his Kindergarten teacher for next year ... we have a Class Clown on our hands!)
Thing 1 taking on a duet part at her Christmas concert:
(in front of a gymnasium full of onlookers)
The Girls doing the traditional Santa Lucia with their cousins:
I am so excited to see their confidence and poise developing -
I hope they won't ever become too timid to share their beautiful talents with the world.
So far we are off to a great start!
And this is the best gift I could receive as their mommy.
