Your going to do what???!!!

Conversation in the car on the way to school this morning!

Pajha: "Oh yeah mom.... I forgot to tell you that I signed up for the school talent show!"...

Me: "Oh okay, what is your talent going to be?" (enter my thoughts... dance, singing, ACTING, hula hooping, all things she is really good at).

Pajha: "I am going to play the piano" (insert crickets) "I am really good at making up my own songs mom!"

Peyton: "Pajha, you are going to embarrass yourself"

Me: "Peyton, don't be rude... but sweetie... you don't know how to play the piano. Are you sure that is what you want to do?"

Pajha: "Yes. I am good at it mom! I can make up my own songs"

Peyton: "Pajha, I REEEEEALLLLLLY don't think you should do that!"

Sigh. My daughter. Never had piano lessons... in fact we don't even OWN a piano. She is my adventurous, brave, confident little girl! I honestly don't know where she came from. I have always been PAINFULLY shy and reserved. And then there is my practical, logical, SHY, serious boy (my mini me). Total polar opposites those two! Gotta love it!


  1. I love that! My daughter is not the only one now...haha. She did the same thing last year, and she wanted me to be there, and here were all these other kids playing Bach, and mozart....she played Mary had a little lamb...but she figured out how to play it on her own hahaha I was so embarrassed, but she was so proud of herself, and I love that about her!

  2. ahhhh,seems like my son and daughter are JUST like yours! my son is so much like me-painfully shy,etc etc,and then theres my super star middle baby girl....complete opposite!!!!!
    and the funny thing is my 3rd baby is a complete mix between the two....
    anyways,i hope your daughter is able to figure out her talent and is proud of herself for whatever she thinks of!
