My Big Chick chose to play the trumpet this year in band. I was kind of surprised to be honest. All her friends are playing the flute or clarinet...something a little softer...more girlie. As a matter of fact she's the only girl trumpet player in band. I don't think I would have separated myself that way at her age...to follow my heart and do what I really wanted...to be different.
There is something magical about my girl. She's confident and cool and just kind of does her own thing. She speaks up for herself. Doesn't seem to be intimidated by others. I'm not sure where she gets it. I wish I would have had some of that growing up. It can take a lifetime to learn those things and she's got it now.
Have a blessed day.
