As I have mentioned before, my little girl is very shy. I mean, painfully, at times. Yet, she loves performing. I mean, adores it. It's like her favorite thing ever. She had her 1st Grade Program last night. And, she has literally been talking about it for weeks and weeks. She was soooo excited about it. Every day she would talk about it. What she would wear, who's going to come and watch, what time she needs to be there, how long it's going to be, etc. Plus, she was VERY excited that she got a solo. Their music teacher had everyone who was interested audition for special parts. She really wanted a singing part, and when she came home with a rapping solo, I admit, I was a little bummed. But, she seemed to be perfectly happy, and was so sweet saying that everyone who got singing parts sang them perfectly, and she did good at the rapping solo!
Well, last night was the night. I didn't quite know what to expect. But, we dressed her up, and watched her shine! And, I mean, glitter. In my eyes, she stole the show. I was so proud that I couldn't stop crying. I'm sure a lot of parents thought I was insane. She struggles with so many things, socially, and often times, never lets anyone see how wonderful she truly is. When she is on the stage, she comes alive, and becomes the Taylee we know and love. I am a proud Mamma!
