Nutty Cracker

Jack made his on-stage debut tonight.


I have been so tired and frustrated by the process of preparing for this Ballet. I had NO IDEA the work and effort that it would require. I have been ready to walk out on more than one occasion. Yesterday, I found myself at the Founder's place of business, speaking with him for quite some time about my complaints. I came away from the meeting with nothing short of excitment. The meeting went better than I could have imagined!

There were a lot of things we weren't told about, but after tonight's show, one thing we should have been told stands out above all the rest... "It's worth it!" Seeing your Little One perform on stage, in front of a live (paying) audience is worth it.

Am I a total and complete sap because I teared up watching Jack on stage? Maybe. But doesn't being a Mom and being a Sap go hand-in-hand?

Here's an update to my previous post on the upcoming performances...

Another thought, is this the same one that is going on in the GRHS? Kaden is going to the Nutcracker at GRHS on Monday with his school....
