Tweet Through It: A Parent’s Experience Through Their Child’s Preschool Christmas Show

While sitting through my nephew’s elementary school Christmas show I decided to be #TwitterFingers and give a play-by-play commentary of the events as they happened. I had to entertain myself through this situation because most of the show was a waiting game until my guy was onstage. Three days later, I had to do it all over again, because it was Cydney’s turn.

Preschool shows are a little different than elementary school ones. There aren’t as many expectations. One expects their kids to do very little and look cute while doing it. Nonetheless, you have to sit through it to see your kid wait their turn to do so. As a musician, I am mentally prepared to hear 99.9% of the children and the notes that they sing to be off-key. As my father said to me yesterday morning, “There’s always hope until you hear the first note.” That was arguably the realest quote I have heard from my father regarding music in all of my thirty years alive, being around it, and ultimately communicating primarily through it.

Cydney Milner is a fucking star…there’s no other way to say it. It is what it is. Yes, she’s my daughter and all; but even if she wasn’t, I would loook at her on that stage and think “That kid right that right there has that “it” factor.” This show was no different.

It was a little sentimental sitting through it. This will be the last child in our family coming through that preschool for some time. I didn’t live in New York when my nephew first started there at least six or seven years ago. However, I did live here when he started his final year; in the same classroom and with the same teacher Cydney currently has. I didn’t think that Cydney or I would be in this place, in New York, and especially without her mom. As I assistend in the clean-up, the director of the school said to my mother and I “This is the last one! Chad, you gotta have another one soon!” I’m getting a lot of that these days.

Enough of the anecdotes, here are the tweets of my first final experience through a Pre-K Christmas show.
