Mama Braggin Monday: Auditions

Mondays are the days that I shamelessly brag on my kids. So, like it or not, here I go.

For monetary and scheduling purposes, I can only allow the kids to do so many extra-curricular activities. So a couple of weeks ago, I pulled together several options for Sarah and I to choose from for her to be involved in.

She had to make the choice between auditioning for our church's Christmas musical, auditioning for a community theater production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and soccer. Piano is a given and non-negotiable in my opinion.

She chose to audition with our local community theater for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. To do that, she had to memorize and recite a passage from the book as her favorite character, which being a little girl of course is Lucy.

I'm bragging today, not because she got the part, because she didn't. We both auditioned and neither of us got called back. I’m bragging today because of the fact that she auditioned and did great.

She worked very hard on her audition piece and memorized it on her own with no help from me. She put forth the effort and gave her very best during the audition and did so despite her nervousness. If you have auditioned before, you know it takes some guts sometimes to get up there and do it. She did it. And did it well.

And I couldn’t have been more proud of her.

Oh, man! I have been on the stage since I was 5, and have had my share of auditions. It does take a lot of guts to get up there, and a lot of character to handle a "no."

Way to go Sarah, for doing your best, and kudos to you, Donna for leading your daughter with class!
