This is why I was born.
Sitting on the third row, center. Beaming. My heart swelling to such size with pride as to burst out of my chest.
"Guys and Dolls" Junior High School Production. My son, "Benny: The Gambler" - a supporting role that stole the show (for me). Singing, joking, a little dancing.
Makes the term 3 report card a faint memory. He was fabulous and I had absolutely nothing to do with it.*
*Unless you count piano and guitar lessons, drama club, music camp, musical theatre, kids choir, school band and all the money, instruments and driving/waiting time involved)
