Three and 1/2 hours


Three and 1/2 hours being a "stage mom"...the mom in charge of keeping 20 kids ages 4-18 quiet, orderly, and quiet.

Quiet.

No talking.

For three and one half hours.

No snacks, no entertainment, no drinks.

Nothing,

nada.

Just me saying, "Shhhhh. I don't know. Don't ask me, I'll tell you. Just be quiet. Shhhh. Shhh. Quiet feet."

Mercy.

I hear one day, for the schools, we do it THREE times. Tres. 3.

Mercy.

Since one of those was my kid, I thank you very much! And since my kid is extra-defiant when I'm around, and since someone has to watch the baby, I have not jumped into the "stage mom" job. Thanks for making yourself available. I'll give you some cheesecake when it's all over :)

It's times like that you wonder WWJD? No really...what would Jesus do? I have no idea!
