I’m not your traditional sentimental mum.
I’ve never shed a tear at a nativity, and the least impressive pieces of artwork very often accidentally* end up in the recycling.**
However, I am totally smitten with Belle’s performance in her class production of Oliver. She played Nancy, and had several solos to sing. My favourite is Small Pleasures***, and I’ve even watched it twice in bed on my phone and everything. All by myself – not just to try to prove to Belle I am interested.
**I like to imagine that should Belle read this when she’s older, there will be some magical reason that means she can’t see these footnotes
***I remembered after I posted this that the song is actually called ‘It’s A Fine Life’ – it will always be Small Pleasures to me though, as Belle has sung this line about 27,528 times at home, rehearsing for that big moment.
Oh my gosh, she is adorable! That accent is just brilliant. Well done Belle :)
She is just wonderful. You must be so proud. Just watched with my 2 year old who Enjoyed it just as much.x
