Thing 2

Thing 2

JoyMy little Thing 2 took to the stage tonight. It wasn’t after nine months of ballet rehearsal, it wasn’t a school recital. She took to the stage when at the Santana Row Tree Lighting event, they asked for children to hit the stage. And she did. Front and center. Belting out Christmas carols like she knew the words (which, um, she didn’t really know many). She swayed to the music, danced and chimed in at the chorus.

I’m was never that kind of girl. Afraid that someone would think I was fat on stage or that I wasn’t dressed cute enough or whatever. My girl doesn’t have those issues. Up she went in front of at least a thousand people, smiling the kind of joy that can only come from the pure heart of a child.
