Nerves (of steel?)
Yman had his Muny Orientation yesterday. When we walked up the ramp, he immediately saw some of the high school kids he dances with and bee lined for them. High fives and hugs were handed out and he was feeling pretty confident. While we waited, another performer he had met at call backs saw him, gave a fist bump and was off. Confidence was showing in him and I was having an extremely proud Mom Moment.
Orientation went well. Questions asked and answered. Then we went on a tour backstage of Muny. What an amazing place. You can feel and see the history all around you.
Then the big moment happened. We were on the stage. Confidence gave way to Awe and Nervousness! It's a lot of seats!
He never really said he was nervous but his mannerisms showed otherwise.
When we were home and waiting for dinner to finish cooking, we let the chicks have a roam in the yard. I think they were nervous also, staying together, moving together throughout their new surroundings. I was nervous they would get into somewhere I wouldn't be able to retrieve them from.
