When you watch your kids doing something amazing, really amazing, you have this moment of clarity that tells you that YOU had NOTHING to do with what you just saw.  Her being amazing on stage was her alone.

 Even if you were the worst mother in the world...her being the very best at something had nothing to do with you being awful.

And the very next thought should be that when your kids do something less then amazing, that too has nothing to do with you.  That is also hers alone.

If I can't claim the good, I shouldn't claim the not so good...you know what I mean??

We do our best. And the Lord does the rest.  Which happens to be the most.

just in case you were wondering:

Molly got cast as Annie in our local youth theater.  There were so many kids that tried out that the director had a double cast.  Molly was magical to watch.  I can't tell you how much I loved watching her.  The whole experience was nothing short of brilliant!!

Lucy was cast in the other show as the orphan Molly...and she was the absolute cutest thing you have ever seen on stage...I'm not kidding!!  My whole face hurt from the smile that never left all weekend. 

It's hard to get over something that exciting....

  1. My daughter did Annie when she was little and it was just magical. As a matter of fact we saw the movie over Christmas time and we both cried remembering the experience from 10 years ago. It's funny how you really do have nothing to do with it but as a mom it becomes a part of you. I can imagine how proud you must be! Enjoy it! And I hope they continue with theater. It is a great and fun experience.
