"Mom! I've won the part of Wendy in the Peter Pan play at school!"
"Wonderful, baby! I'm proud of you! Well, we better get to work on you learnin' your lines."
Two months later Kylie came in, tears welling up. She said "Dress rehearsal went awful! Peter Pan was allergic to his costume and just couldn't quit sneezing. Michael and the other small boys decided to swing as they flew and their cables got tangled. Tinkerbell a little five year old threw all her pixie dust out at once and everyone had a layer of glitter on them now. We'll never get it cleaned off! Then, I went to fly and my cable wasn't anchored and i ended up on the floor on my tummy!"
"Sweetheart, I love you. I'm glad you're OK. There are some things in life it's better to laugh about and change them from catastrophes to comedies. You've got to admit it had to have been a funny sight. When it goes really bad at rehearsal it's a sign opening night is going to be great! Keep your chin up. And remember no matter how it goes tomorrow your dad and I love you and we'll celebrate all the hard work you've done. We'll party with some hamburgers and ice cream after the play!"
The next night went beautifully. They all did great. Thank the Lord for dress rehearsal that gets all the figurative and literal kinks out!
