Tonight I brought the girls to school to see our 4th and 5th graders put on Beauty and the Beast. The show didn’t start till 7:00pm, which is typically their bedtime, so I wasn’t sure how it would go. The girls were antsy as we waited for the show to begin.
And then it did! Sophia sat on my lap the entire time, mainly because she couldn’t see. Being a show that she knows, she would ask where Belle was or where was the Beast? Her little neck craned upwards, in hopes of catching a glimpse of the beloved characters. Sophia was mesmerized, watching the entire time, even though she was quite tired.
But the best part of watching this musical with Sophia was hearing her sing. She loves her music and hearing the songs, she couldn’t help but sing along, even when she didn’t know the words! She clapped at all the right parts and loved seeing all the characters on stage at the end.
Sophia could not stop talking about the show as we walked back to the car. I asked her if one day she might be a character on stage, to which she replied yes. One day, Sophia Olson will be on stage!
