So after the bath Patience dressed she and Eva and took them upstairs to get ready for the show. Finally after a little while we were all called up there and it was show time.
Patience wanted all the lights out and I used my phone as not only a spot light but for music. The song she chose, her birthday video song, You Are My Sunshine. So for the next 3 minutes my baby girls danced and twirled around the room to a song whose words could not better describe my feelings towards all my kids....
You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy, when skies are grey
I had one of those out of body experiences in that moment... Looking down on the room at all of us and thinking soak this moment in, soak every second of it in... They will grow up so fast. So, I did. I watched and clapped and sang and adored and cried and cheered. I would freeze them at this age if I could. Carefree and feeling like the whole world is about doing a "ballet show" in your tutu with your sister and your whole family cheering you on.
I can't say enough how much I love my life and how privileged I feel to live it.
