We decided to sing our favorite bedtime tune – “The Pajama Song” by Teatime With Tayla. You can view it on YouTube HERE. Be forewarned – it’s not the best song to actually sing right before bed as it might get your kids so hyped up it will take 9 hours and possibly some Benadryl to get them to calm down.
(I hope y’all know I am totally kidding about the Benadryl thing. Lol.)
As the Talent Show approached, however, I started having second thoughts.
I mean, who was I kidding? My kids RARELY do what I want them to do. In fact, I began having visions of full blown tantrums center stage. Not exactly the kind of talent I want them showing off, yah know? But they were offering a Chick-fil-a dinner before the event, so I figured that was a point in our favor.
I was also doubting that it was a good idea for me to get up there and dance around in fairy wings because I am 32 now and all the mature moms I know lead beautiful, quiet lives without mismatched knee socks and overabundance of glitter.
In the end, though, we went for it.
And I’m so glad we did because it was SO. FUN.
The only setback was that Happy Baby got stage fright the second we stepped out in front of the crowd and he needed me to hold him through our entire performance.
I may be 32, but I danced and sang my way through a 3 minute song with a 30 lb. child on my hip and I did not fall over dead from exhaustion.
If that’s not talent, I don’t know what is.
