Count On Me, #1107



I am a proud Mama today and am still riding on a wave of joy from my children’s accomplishments last night.  Later in the week for the blog I write for my work, I will tell you all about the “Noah and the Lost Bark” play that I wrote & directed, but today, I just want to exercise my Mommy rights to brag about my kids.

My kids were in the show and played a brother & sister doggie team.  My daughter is a veteran performer and loves getting on a stage more than anyone possibly could.  My son, on the other hand, has only been in one play before at his school and only had to memorize one three-worded line.

Truth be told – I wasn’t sure that he’d be able to pull off this part.  He was not exactly the picture of a focused zen master during rehearsals, but then – WOW!  Not only did he do it well, but he was so overjoyed and proud of himself.  Seeing the confidence he gained from one evening on the stage fulfilled every expectation I could have hoped for.

So yes, I am a super proud Mom today and really love the benefits of performance for children.  My song of the day was spoofed in our show last night.  “Count On Me,” by Bruno Mars, however, is also a song about friendship and pulling through for each other.  I’m so happy our little family has each other to count on.  🙂


About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
