My 3 Monsters

Every parent should have a day like we had today. A day where you just celebrate your child's strengths and successes instead of nagging and nitpicking about the mundane things they don't do so very well. Maybe other parents already have these days more than we do. Sad.
Sydney was a delightful, amazing thing to behold in her play tonight. Take that with a grain of salt if you must. I fully admit to being a proud, proud mommy. She WAS . . .
Spectacular. Radiant. Talented. Beautiful.
Brent and I were beaming all night about this marvelous little girl we have raised. This girl who is what she is in spite of us. This girl who came straight from heaven into our family with a firm resolve to be the center of attention. This perfect, perfect little daughter who has had us wrapped around her finger since the first time we laid eyes on her. And yet, somehow, we were both smitten again tonight watching her, for probably the first time, really, truly in her element.

It was lovely.


  1. That is so good to remember...yeah this mommy was not so nice to her Ry yesterday. There's always tomorrow right?

  2. That Sydney was something else! She not only is amazing and incredibly comfortable onstage, but man that girl can sing!
    She may not be my little angel - but I was proud, too!
    Andrew was even amazed and it takes a lot to impress a 13 year old boy (well when it comes to musicals that is...)

  3. What a great experience, for the whole family! Congrats to Sydney on a job well done, and to Amy and Brent for growing her so well. :)

  4. Congrats Sydney! I hope you guys got lots of photos and video and are planning to share sometime soon! We too are proud of you!

  5. Congratulations! This sounds like a truly great night. I have to second the request for photos. Plus I am dying to see the incredible backdrop I'm sure you painted.

  6. She was amazingly fun to watch. I think she has great charm and grace. She just seemed to absorb the spotlight. Thanks for having us over afterwards too. We always have such a good time with you guys. Then say, "we should do more with them". So know that we are game whenever!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I try to respond to every one, even if it takes me a little while!
