I feel ashamed to admit it but I have sinned. I have broken my pledge to embarrass my kids whenever the opportunity arises and I truly feel remorse!!
My youngest is a true thespian and will be acting in a local 'am dram' production of Shadowlands ( story of CS Lewis) in May, and he attends rehearsals 3 times a week at the moment.
Last night the lady playing a lead role had not yet turned up,and as the director looked around her gaze fell upon me and she casually asked would I like to read in for her!!
Well I thought to myself this could be my big moment, I could discover a talent I didn't know I had, I could do this and they might think I'm fab and ask me to stay and take the role! I was thinking Oscars ( or probably Razzies!) working with the big names.......Hollywood here I come.
That was until I glanced around excitedly towards my son who's look said it all!!!! If eyes could talk he was shouting ' OMG DON'T YOU BLOODY DARE OR I WILL KILL YOU'!! ( or words to that affect as he is only 10 but give him time).
So I relented on my pledge and quietly declined the invitation, much to his relief.
I must not give in so easily........I must stay resilient to my cause...........I will be stronger next time......!!!
