A note to make a mama proud

Magpie attends a music class once a week where there is a three-piece band (guitar, keyboard, and drums), where the musicians pass out tambourines, etc., and at the end of class let the kids practice singing into the microphone. Magpie and her class "sing" along to songs ranging from those of the Beatles to Roy Orbison to the ABC song. It's really a lovely class (if a bit over the top), and she is enthralled by it.

This week, the night after the class, I received the following email from the grandmother of one of Magpie's friends in class:

"[Magpie] was the star of music class - the most delighted, joyful, enthusiastic, and ardent participant! She was awesome, not to mention adorable."

My heart about split wide open. That's my girl in a nutshell! Joyful, ardent, intense. There is so much personality in her little being. She is so present. She is so happy. She is so energetic.

I have no idea where she came from, but she is so herself, and I am so so proud and thrilled to be her mama.

  2. Yes!!! Totally awesome learning about our girls' personalities. I heard "joyful" at Sunshine's parent teacher conference today. Fills my heart!

  3. That's amazing for a child so young! I'm of the opinion that personalities show up at an early age and it sounds like a star is born! Congrats! She sounds like so much fun.

  4. Awww, that's so sweet. I would be super proud too! I can just see her singing and playing music with enthusiasm. :)

  5. How beautiful! Proud mama moments make our hearts sing, don't they ?

  6. that's so beautiful! What amazing love you hold for your darling girl.

  7. She's making you SING in more ways than just being herself :)

  8. Mo, that made me teary!!! I am so happy for you; she really is lovely.
