Delaney got to be in the children’s Christmas program at church this year. The toddlers and preschoolers sang a few songs that had actions. Of course Delaney didn’t want any part of singing or doing actions. She was just really taken aback by all the people watching her on stage.
The only words out of her mouth during the whole program were “Daddy” and “Mommy” when she caught a glimpse of us in the audience.
At the end of the program, the kids sang “Happy Birthday, Jesus” and put a heart in the manger. Delaney just stared at the paper heart in her hand, trying to figure out what to do with it.
She hasn’t quite conquered her stage presence. Yet.
