Sharing loves

Today is Five Minute Fridays so lets link up and write
So I write for Five minute, no edits, no re dos and at the end I will see if there are pictures from my week Instagram feed that match the words of this week.
Topic: Share

One of the things I have loved about being a mom is rediscovering past loves through my daughter's eyes. I loved the theatre growing up and was involved with numerous plays. My Mom and I would take in shows from time to time. But as I grew and left home theatre was one of those things that fell to the way side.
Then comes Mouse and at a young age of three, she tells me she wants to be on stage. At that time I was running and judging pageants so she did the baby pageant circuit. (Go ahead judge on that one, if it makes you feel better the pageant circuit in MN is really just one) Then she caught the theatre bug at 4. There is a community theatre where we live that is for 4 - 6th graders. She has been working her way up from chorus to one of the leads (so proud).
But she also has a love for the art of theatre. We take in a few shows a year. It has been great to get back into this past love and to see it with new eyes. Last night we went with my Mom to watch Blithe Spirit, my friend Allie had the lead. Listening to Mouse laugh and gasp through out the play was so much fun.
Now, I just have to find ways to keep encouraging this dream of hers.

  1. That's so great! I loved being in plays back in college -- I played Mammy Yokum from 'Lil Abner. Musicals were definitely a favorite to listen to and watch. Now my daughter enjoys musicals, too. Notably Grease, but we're working our way into others. Performing is such a fun thing to do! Visiting from Five Minute Friday

  2. Love your daughter is only 5 but I feel myself, as you say, revisiting past loves with her....and I know how you must have felt, needing to help your daughter follow her callings, as my daughter (even though she is just 5) has very set ideas about what she wants to do with her life and what her likes and dislikes are! It's so good to read about such a supportive Mum! Well done to your daughter for channelling her passion so constructively!


Thanks for stopping by! We love to read your comments. In this crazy world it sometimes takes me a bit to get back to you right away, but please know that we are trying, especially if you ask a question or invite us over to your blog.
