This weekend I was a proud mom. A very, very proud mom.
She has worked hard with her teacher and friends for months to give the greatest Nutcracker performance.
I loved seeing her feel proud of herself. I loved seeing her look up to the older girls who set such a wonderful example. I loved seeing her smile when she noticed me looking at her. I loved how she could tell I was very, very proud.
I loved that Baby Girl was asked to be a Cookie at the last minute. She became a star. She was in a dream. She was being like her big sister. She exclaimed all weekend, “Abby you are a mouse and I am a cookie,” followed by a giggle.
I love that she felt a part of something with her big sister. I love that she was brave. I love that she was the youngest one in the whole performance of 125 dancers and that she did spectaular.
I was a very proud mom indeed.
