On Tuesday, Kensington had her first Christmas program at school. Her class wore little puppy dog ears and sang their songs. It was so sweet. So sweet. She waved at us, she sang her heart out, she was precious. I know the teachers worked so hard to produce the program and it was well worth it. We were beaming parents. It was hard to get good pictures but here are two. Love my girl.
As a side note, here’s a little secret about Shay you don’t know. I used to be in the church choir. Yes. I could sing. When I was 20, I was cast as Mary in our church Christmas musical and had to sing a big solo to a live baby at each performance. (It was my rock star moment in life!) My parents came to all 5 performances and my dad came to almost every single rehearsal. I thought it was sweet and everything but didn’t really “get” it until this past Tuesday. I would go back and watch Kensington sing her little songs 5 times if I could. Being a parent and watching your kids do something special is just the best thing ever. Ten years later, I finally get how proud my parents were of me. Thank you Mom and Dad. And PS: last year, when the doctors took my tonsils out, they took my singing ability out as well. It’s a good thing they watched me when they did because trust me…no one is going to be asking me to sing any time soon. 🙂
