look center, up to the left of the bright blue skirt…see our favorite blondie?
Last week was Charlie’s kindergarten Christmas program and I seriously wish that we had invited every single person that we know. Leading up to the big night we were a bit nervous. Charlie is doing so well at school but standing up on a stage, in an auditorium that he’s never even set foot in? We didn’t know what to expect.
As usual, Charlie set me straight. Not only did he do the hand motions to all FIVE of the songs, but he was SINGING. Sure he was a bit off-key. Yes, sometimes he was a beat or two behind. But to see him standing proudly and to hear his voice along with all of the other kids in his grade was quite simply the best.
Of course I’m kicking myself for not taking more photos or a video or doing something else to document this moment, but honestly Alex and I were paralyzed in our seats for the entire performance. Amazed. Panicked. Ready to run down to that stage in a flash. But mostly we couldn’t stop laughing and smiling at the wonder of our little guy.
It probably sounds silly, but that night felt a bit magical.
Who knew it could be so good?
**total side note…for weeks Charlie’s teacher, me, really anyone who has tried to get a photo of Charlie cannot get him to keep his head straight for a photo. I couldn’t figure it out. Until I was snapping these photos. And guess who had her head turned to the side while holding the camera? Duh. Mystery solved. ;)
