The most anticipated day of my life was finally here...my son's first ever piano concert performance. It was definitely the most nerve wrecking experience for me. Just imagine all the hard work and heartache...begging him to practice over and over again for the past 2 months. Telling him not to play too fast or at times too slow, or whatever pace depending on his mood. Teaching him how not to run but walk to the stage. Teaching him how to bow the Japanese way. Teaching him to smile and not making funny faces during the presentation. I even made myself promised him that if he didn't make any mistake during the performance, I would get him his dream toy. And he assured me he would not make any mistake.
Despite his confidence with his ability, he had not given any perfect performance yet. Not even during the rehearsal. Ahh...I told myself not to expect too much from him. Trying to keep cool and not spoiling his mood because he seemed to be looking forward to his performance.
I was biting my nails while watching him doing his solo performance.
Below was his performance. It started with a solo then later followed by a duet with me.
I must give him the credit. No doubt he was the clown of the day. Making people laughed at his expression and gestures... but, he didn't make any mistake during his performance. He was quite good. I am so proud of him! Yappari anak mama!
Of course, at the end of the day we had to do what we had to do...
We bought him his dream toy...the Optimus prime.
And he...is so happy and already counting the days to his next performance.
