Helen’s debut public performance as a Baker Kazoo Player was this evening, and she did a lovely job. She says she “messed up” a few times, but I think she did well anyway. She was exhausted and ready for bed by the time we got home, though — because of her excitement she didn’t sleep well last night (which meant that none of us slept well either), and so being kept up past her bedtime was a bit much.
I’m proud of her, though.
This morning, getting her dressed and ready for school (where the kindergarten would perform the play for all the other students in the school at 8:30), she asked me, “Why are YOU so excited?” Well, kid, I hope you like to perform, because I’ve found a lot of joy in it.
She likes to perform.
Heaven help us all.
