Bennett made her theatrical debut Sunday night in a skit at our church. To be honest- I was a nervous wreck beforehand. Would she cry? Would the bright lights hurt her eyes? What if she got onstage and had a melt down? What if I couldn't remember any lines because I was so worried about her? Fortunately, none of that happened and she was a pro. She just sat there like an angel and charmed the audience with her spit bubbles. However, I think I am keeping her off the stage for awhile, due solely to keeping me sane.
It did really make me think about how much our life has changed. Rob and I are both very spontaneous and care free. We are not scheduled people at all. We eat whenever we feel like it, which may be 11:00 at night. We will decide to go see a movie 10 minutes before it starts. We like to spend Saturday afternoons rambling around with no agenda. We may end up downtown or in Tallasee. Who knows? But with Bennett, I have become a slave to the clock. The main reason the skit stressed me out so much was that I didn't want to get her off track. I know precisely when she eats, when she's awake, and when she sleeps. Now, how does getting a baby in a car seat, driving her to the church, waiting backstage, doing the skit, and then getting her home again, fit into her schedule? It doesn't. So either I am going to need to relax on that a little bit, or have the happiest, most well adjusted home bound hermit for the next year.
