Small pleasures – my proud mummy moment

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.

*on purpose

**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.
