stage fright

Yesterday was the kindergarten school play. I was more worried about it than excited, as the kid has exhibited extreme stage fright in the past. I wouldn't say I had low expectations—honestly if she decided to sit it out it would have been O.K. by me, but I didn't want to entertain any expectations. I just wanted her to know that I was there, and I love her, and she needn't be afraid.

It turns out any fears that I may have been harboring evaporated, as the kid said all her lines on cue, had a great time on stage, and a great time offstage watching her friends do their plays. She'll never know how proud (and relieved) she made me when her jitters earlier in the week turned out to be for naught.

Complete non-sequiter: Hitchcock's walk-on in Stage Fright. I love Hitch.
