I found out that my 4-year-old daughter, who is usually a social butterfly, has an extreme case of stage-fright. I attended her first Christmas Music Program at preschool today.
I figured that pictures would tell the story best.
It started out good, she was REALLY excited:
Then the teacher told them to take their places, and the surprise shyness began:
...and they were singing....except my daughter...who stood there silent like this:
She wanted to hide when they sang "Rudolph..."
Finally...it was over...she DID enjoy snack-time after:
I'm sure there have been many parents who have been through the same thing...it was kinda cute...and disappointing at the same time. I guess we'll get tease her about this a little when she gets older :)
