Christmas Pageant

On Tuesday night The Phi had her school Christmas Pageant. And it was a real Christmas play with Baby Jesus and all. That's what a religious private education gets you. To say that she was excited is an understatement. She was very very excited. The pre-k girls were going to be Baby Dolls and the pre-k boys were stuffed animals. Luckily we got there early, thank goodness, because the place got packed really really fast. I saved seats for PR Dad and his Mom.

Before her teacher showed up The Phi and her buddy Eduardo got to play for a little while in the chapel. Shhhh don't tell Eduardo, but The Phi is his Secret Santa for the big class Christmas party.



The Pre-k-ers were on stage for about half the play and only had 2 big songs. So there was a lot of time for The Phi to attempt to sit still while the rest of the play went on. She used her time on stage to practice what I like to call.....


"The Many Faces of The Phi"




But when it was time to sing, man did my kid sing. She dug deep in her soul and sang with her whole heart.


I will admit it watching The Phi on stage singing made me one very proud Mom. Complete with tears, but I blame that on the pregnancy hormones. But she did so great.

The Phi with her awesome teacher.

That night as I put The Phi to bed I asked her, "Did you like being on stage with the lights and the audience?" She looked at me with those giant chocolate eyes and said.....

"Mom, I LOVED it"

And with that A Star is Born!
