No thank you, I'm not hungry . . . I ate my words for dinner!!

Charming Child is auditioning for a play on Saturday . . . not just a play at the local community center, but a musical being put on by a pretty reputable theatre company. It is a very exciting time for her, to imagine herself up on stage, acting and singing and dancing, all of the things that come so naturally to her . . . I must admit, I am quite excited myself.

For her audition she has to sing a song, of her choice, for one minute, then perform a dance routine, which she will learn the day of the audition. Today we have spent hours and hours trying to find a song that could be cut down to one minute without sounding crazy. I know, we're cutting it a little short, but you see, that's just the way we function . . . better under pressure!!

So, for those of you that know Charming Child aka Miss Thing, you know that she has a bit of a, well let's say, ATTITUDE PROBLEM!!! Those of you that don't know her have most likely gathered that she has this "little" problem from visiting me here. If you do know her and you don't know about this "little" problem, please contact me so we can arrange for you to spend some one-on-one time with her. Those of you that don't know her and haven't thus far gathered that she has this "little" problem, please feel blessed that writing is not a form of therapy for me, or you would hear it ALL!

Okay, so where was I? Oh yes, the song . . . so, we finally found a song (the song that you are joyfully listening to as you read this.) She sings this song so well, and she even has dance moves to go along with it, which I think is great because otherwise she would look like a singing mannequin up on stage . . . so she was just singing along and dancing along, and I (stupid, stupid, stupid) tell her, "Come on, put a little attitude into it!" And, now, I am no longer hungry . . .

We just got back from a middle school play/musical in the next town. It is AMAZING what kids can do!

Well now, nothing wrong with words of encouragement. ;-)

However, I'm a little surprised in your feeling Charming Child didn't have enough attitude. Now I know for certain you haven't been feeling well. :-)
