Been There and Bought the T-shirt
Yesterday I spent my day on the 5th and 6th grade choir 2009 Christmas tour. The first stop was a nursing home (I missed that leg of the tour), then on to the courthouse. Our performers then got to have lunch at the mall. This is the part of the tour where I became invisible to my daughter. I know she loves me and we are very close, but right now her friends are very important to her. But, I gave birth to her for goodness sake, shouldn't she want to spend all of her time with me, her lovely mother? I know she is just beginning to spread her wings, I just like her in the nest. Okay, let me get a tissue and wipe my eyes and we'll get back to the tour. The last stop was at an assisted living home. The choir did a beautiful job. Afterward the students mingled with the residents, wishing them a Merry Christmas. I'm sure many of the kids were out of their comfort zone, but I was so proud of the way they conducted themselves. They truly were young ladies and gentlemen. Being a groupie is exhausting, but I can say that I've been there and bought the t-shirt (actually, there were no t-shirts, but I totally would have bought one).
