Stage Mom in the Making

Today I got to experience what it's like to be a stage mom.

Eli was asked to play the part of a talking baby (similar to those popular commercials with a talking baby) in a video for a local organization.

I was asked about this opportunity about a month ago but didn't think much of it. Then this week I hit full panic mode.

People, you may sit on your couches and mock the parents on Toddlers and Tiaras but I have now experienced it FULL ON.

IT IS STRESSFUL.

I can see how the downward slide happens. One minute you are a normal mom doing your own thing, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, the next thing you know you are consumed with your child; what will he wear? Will he know what to do? Will I be embarrassed? What if he cries the whole time and my entire worth as a mother is shattered in one moment?!?!?!?

And before you know it you are standing in front of your child mouthing the words to songs and performing a dance routine that you know, if you could just get up there you could do it way better than your beloved child.

Ok, maybe it didn't go that far, but I now have empathy for those moms. IT JUST HAPPENS.

Eli actually did really well. After a couple of meltdowns, me hiding so he couldn't see me, and a long needed nap he executed an award winning performance.

It was fun to do something a little out of the norm, plus it got Eli the exposure he needed.

Eli in his big debut:

Please contact me for all booking inquiries. By his first birthday he should be able to sing and tap dance to "Singing in the Rain."

I had a feeling that Mr. Wehmueller was involved with this. The picture confirmed my suspicions. :)
