She was handily the star of the show outshining Annie and the rest of the cast and I'm not just saying that because I'm her Mooma. She has a real talent for the stage, an excellent voice that carries well and great body language and facial expression as well. I couldn't have been more proud of her. Even when someone else missed a cue she could improv like a pro.

And, oh my did she look beautiful in makeup. She most often dresses like a boy, never wears makeup and wears clothes that are loose and don't define her gorgeous figure. This is good, I think, for the moment as she's only 14. But, when she was dressed up as Miss Hannigan, in stage makeup and body hugging dress, she looked about 20 and was such a knock out.

I missed the second performance because I had gone to my grandson's karate match earlier that day and sat in a hard seat which made my back hurt and was very tired from some earlier family drama. Had planned to be there in spite of the pain, but on of the other daughters made a snide comment about me going twice to see Anah and not making it some of the other grandchildren's functions at all. She was especially, of course, uptight about her own daughter. What can I say? I don't drive at night and it takes an hour to get to where they live and if I don't have a ride I don't go. But, rather than make a touchy situation even worse, I opted out of Saturday's performance. Anah didn't mind. She had a blast and there was even an after play party, so it's all good.

I hope that she continues next year in high school drama class as she has quite a flair for performance art. Heck, she's just awesome all the way around, so much talent and a brilliant mind as well. And, I'll even admit she's my favorite. After all, she lived with us till she was 5, I cut the cord when she was born and we have a special bond.

She truly did enjoy it so maybe she'll keep going with it.

Good for her! I hope she sticks with the drama in high school. Too often, the arts aren't sufficiently supported (whether by the school system or by parents) so when a kid actually has some talent I really want to see them keep it up.

I hear you. Anah's mom had to supply her costumes, the school has no money for much of anything.

Right now she's buzzed on her success and wants to do more so fingers crossed that she keeps that attitude. She"ll be a freshman next year.
