The Christmas Nativity

/

/ by
Well the closer we get to Christmas the more I am FREAKING OUT! I've got so much wrapping to do and only a little more than a week to do it. But anyway, I'm here to talk about my magic moment this week.

On Friday my little one took part in his very first Nativity. He had been picked to be InnKeeper 1 and even had a line. He thought it was fantastic and was insistent that me and his dad go and watch him on stage. 'Of course we'll be there.' I said, to which he replied 'yeh, so I can wave.' Don't you just love it?

Ok so Friday afternoon the hubby and I ventured up to the school and waited for a while for them to get the kids ready. They filed into the small hall, took their places on stage and the show began. My little one was up there, grinning from ear to ear, and I was filled with pride. I watched all the children do their best to perform and I have to say they all did brilliantly but for me, what made the day memorable was when they started singing 'Go Tell It On The Mountain' and there was one voice that was louder than anyone else's. Yep, that's right... it was my little one. Tears blurred my vision and I couldn't help but laugh. Through the whole performance his was the loudest voice, not surprising given his volume when he's at home, and he did his very best to entertain everyone. He pulled faces when he wasn't singing and spent a lot of the time waving to me and his father. :)

When it was all over and he came out of school, rushed up to both of us and said, "Did you hear me?" I just smiled.

  1. Oh bless him. We had our first one last week too, Nursery and Reception had a joint play. I was so proud of Monkey for just getting dressed up and sitting at the front. Lovely memories

    1. They certainly are great memories and ones I don't think we'll ever forget. The only down side is that you realise your baby is growing up.

    1. Thanks for visiting afra,They are adorable, at least some of the time. I think the best part was when the hubby couldn't stop laughing at the faces the little one was making. Mums and dads around us kept looking. :) I haven't had a chance to look through #magicmoments yet but intend to do it first thing tomorrow. Glad you stopped by.

    1. When you see Joshua it will both melt and break your heart. You suddenly have the realisation that they're not your baby anymore at the same time that you're bursting with pride. :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by JallieDaddy. It's so special watching them performing. My eldest has never been one for putting himself 'out there' and doesn't like being on stage but the little one - OMG! He definitely enjoys it and watching him have so much fun made me smile. That's the best you can ask for when you're a parent - seeing your child enjoy themselves is magical. :)
