performance

‘Sorry, not sorry.’ Today marks my 6th year of saving front-row-center seats at my child’s Christmas performance.’: Mom unabashedly defends her aggressive actions

“That’s 6 years of pissing other people off by staking claim on 4 to 8 seats so my family and I can watch our nugget with the BEST view. I won’t apologize for this. Ain’t nobody more determined than a helicopter mama who wants her child to notice her immediately upon taking the stage. There is no shame in my seat-saving game.”

‘None of this was worth it!’ I was honestly holding back tears. I drove home crying, horrified.’: Mom incredibly ‘disappointed’ by 6-year-old son’s theater performance, then finally realizes what matters, ‘the kid was a star’

“My immediate first reaction was, ‘Crap. He’s totally freaked out. Maybe I was wrong in thinking he would love this!’ Then he began twirling – in the curtains. I cringed. ‘Oh my. He’s totally not listening!’ I started to get this fiery, internal rage inside of me. WHY wasn’t anyone there to direct him?! He’s 6! I was so shocked.”
