My Mother's Day was spent watching my children in their ballet recital -- twice! They were in both the 2:00 show and the 6:00 show, and of course, they were AWESOME! It wasn't a very relaxing Mother's Day, but it was a fun one. I was one of the backstage chaperone moms for the 2:00 performance, so I only so bits of that performance. I got to watch the 6:00 one from start to finish, and really enjoyed it. The ballet was Hansel & Gretel, and Zoe was an angel in Act I and a villager in Act II. Maya was a red bird in Act I. During the 2:00 performance, Maya had a wardrobe malfunction -- her "wings" came untied. But she handled it like a pro -- just kept on dancing!
I was blessed with a wonderful show, many hugs and kisses, cards and surprises today. For all mothers who got to see and hold their children close, I hope your Mother's Day was full of joy. For all mothers who missed their children today, I hope you find peace.
