No More Drama

Last night we did something crazy. We went to Lilith Fair. Outdoor concert, six hours long. Loud. Both kids did AWESOME. I was there for Marty and Emily of the Dixie Chicks Courtyard Hounds.  So much more to say about the concert, but had to share this…

Mary J. Blige was incredible. She is just such a soulful, love filled, strong, strong presence. When she was singing her hit, No More Drama, she was really giving it her all, passionately jumping in the air, then she went down to a crouch, etc. Riley leaned over to me and whispered,

“She’s actually being quite dramatic.”

  8. Wow – so great that the kids did well with it! And I just LOVE what Riley said, the fact that she got it. She is truly a wonder. xoxo

    Lol. She makes an excellent point. Did you tell her that it’s usually a good rule that as soon as someone says, ‘i’m not being dramatic’ they probably are? 😉

    No surprise that Riley is wise. She’s going to be a Wisdom Teacher, you know.
