Because motherhood will never be a perfect science


on April 13, 2015

My Baby girl is the family princess. There’s nothing new about that.

She is also a ballerina…



And dancer.

She can perform to any song on the radio or TV and she has definitely got great rhythm and timing

She’s also a comedian

Not just the smarty-pants kid with the quick comebacks…

She actually has great comedic timing

I’ve had more than one of her teachers tell me the same thing

Just in case you thought this was just a mom gushing…

But she is also the most shy and at times overly-sensitive kid I know

She will dance her little heart out at her dance class but I’m dreading the recital

She’s excited about her Kindergarten Spring concert at school but I don’t think she realizes she has to be upon stage in front of parents and the rest of the students

Last year she cried at her own birthday party because there was just too much going on

I’m not sure how to get her to the point when she’s not so uncomfortable in public

Especially since I’ve always been the shy kid too

How do I encourage her to be confident when there are days when I still hate walking into a crowded room all by myself?

I guess we’ll have to figure it out together.

Does a 4 ½ year old understand the phrase “Fake it ‘til you make it’?
