HI Yup back to work and hardly ever here again, *****!!! difficult child had her very first violin concert tonight, she was up on stage with about 50 kids at one point, on a HUGE stage in the middle school not even her own. Was she a bit anxious? umm yup she was, but guess what she handled it coped through it with-no help from me!!! YAY!! She looked beautiful, bit hurdle for her tonight. She's done small, very small chorus things on tiny stage at her school with-alot of anxiety, yet this wtih an instrument in her hand was just the redirect focus she needed to take her head off the anxiety. oh, i'm sooo proud!! and very proud of her! Dad took them both for ice cream after, and drove out for 3 hours to come see it. Overall really good night to be a difficult child mom!! just wanted to share that with you guys!
