Stinky on Stage
I used to do a lot of theater. It wasn't uncommon for me to be in rehearsal for one show once I was performing another. After I got married, it slowed a little, but once I was pregnant, it was a little bit harder to find roles (C'mon, a pregnant nun in The Sound of Music would add a lot of depth, and you know it). After Stinky was born, I played Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. That was a little more than four years ago.
I've missed performing, so on my 30 before 30 list was to get back on stage. This time, though, I get a bonus: Stinky will be with me. I hoped that we would get this chance, and heaven knows this kid loves attention. We're in rehearsals for a production at church to be performed just before Thanksgiving, and I'm really grateful he and I get to have this opportunity. I got a little emotional at rehearsal tonight, thinking about it and hearing the director's plans for the kid's chorus. I can't wait to see him perform, I hope he enjoys it as much as I have.
