My Own Little Songbird

Yes, I am a proud mother!! Her first musical audition (for someone OTHER than Songbird or a music teacher from Mena), and she succeeds!! Not that I don't have faith in my little chickadee, but you know how mothers are always a little biased in their opinions of their offsprings' talents. I had heard her practicing her music, trying not to offer TOO much input - and thought she sounded prepared. I suppose I should have listened to Songbird when she told me that my baby had a good voice, but, c'mon. She's my FRIEND. Would you tell your friend if their kid sucked? Then again, I have to remember that my friend is pretty honest. She probably would have told me that.

It was a nerve-wracking day, mostly for me - b/c I get very uptight and competitive about these things. The child? Fairly nonchalant. She said she didn't care if she made it or not - but you know, deep down inside, she really did. She competed against older girls from bigger schools, and still placed 10th! I can't wait to hear the all-region concert - and that will be one more weekend that Songbird will have to put up with me!

You must be so proud and rightly so!
It is indeed the best thing we can do to litter our kid's path with opportunity and encouragement!
Well done you and well done Songbird!!

Your daughter is gorgeous. You are in some serious trouble when she starts dating... if it hasn't happened already.

10th is great. I bet you are proud.
