Last night was The Mother Hen’s Spring Chorus Concert. For the first time ever, in this parenting gig, I knew exactly where we needed to be and what we needed to do. And Bear, who normally has this all down, was following my lead. I knew what side we had to sit on so that we could get the best angle with the camera. It was actually very reassuring to me that I knew exactly what to do. I even thought for a moment, I might actually be okay at this whole parenting thing.
As we were finding our seats, I took a moment to look around. And that is when it happened. I got mobbed, by teenager girls. All or the girls that I had met at Festival were running up to give me a hug. Even girls that I thought didn’t like me were coming by to say hello. Bear kept asking me who everyone was and I could barely name off the kids before I had a different one saying hi. I had no idea that I had made such an impression. So, now, I am thinking, that this project of mine, might just work…
The girls sounded even better than they did at Festival. I could tell that they took the workshop to heart and really worked on their music. They were less nervous and more poised last night. And as a group, they looked so confident. I know that some of the were nervous before they went on. But when they were up there, they were simply amazing.
