There is an odd sense of arrival when you take your kid to their first ‘Christmas program rehearsal’ and a whole other set of emotions somewhere along the lines of pride/giddiness/silliness/love/affection when you see your wide-eyed, slightly horrified 3-year-old stand up in front of the entire church (with his sunday school class) to sing a Christmas song.
The cuteness was almost too much.
There’s actually two different ‘programs’ on the slideshow…the first was the Sunday morning Christmas program and the second is from his preschool Christmas program.
I apparently have some stage-mom tendencies because I was on my knees in the aisle (both times!) with my camera and iphone alternating between madly snapping photos, trying to encourage smiling/singing/participating and taking video with my phone.
Jack is just getting so BIG these days. The funny stories, the things he thinks about, everything he’s learning, even the way he looks. It’s a little much for me sometimes. Slow down I want to yell! It’s too much too fast, but good, so very very good.
