To say I am blown away by N's talent is a gross understatement. He quite simply amazes me every time he steps onto the stage. He acts, sings, and dances with such enthusiasm and energy. No role is too small for him. Whether he's a lead or has a small part in the ensemble he gives it 110%. I have no idea where he got this talent. But he has it in spades. At least in my totally biased opinion! And judging by the number of people who take the time to tell me they saw him in this play or that play and how much they enjoyed watching him and how talented he is, I'm not the only one who thinks so!
We had front row tickets for opening night and as I sat there watching him up on that stage last night I felt myself tearing up. (Big shock there!) My middle baby, independent, determined, wickedly smart and funny, and who has always followed his own path in life, has found his niche. A niche where he is comfortable and happy, that has shown him the path he would like to pursue in life, wherever it may lead him. Once again, I have a kid intent on pursuing what some would call a crazy dream. Perhaps. But I am enough of a dreamer myself to encourage him to pursue it as far as he can so that he never has any regrets. In the meantime, I'll look forward to enjoying every minute of this crazy ride with him.
