Perils of Parenthood

I received a flier about the middle school putting on a musical and I immediately signed M up.  I knew she would love it.  I thought it would be good for her (she told me she wanted to work on her nerves when she has to speak in public).  Yesterday, as I drove her to the first rehearsal, I was more excited than she was.  She was irritated, didn’t want to do it.  She wanted to be back home, in her bed, sleeping.  I started to worry and question my intentions.  Did I sign her up because it would be good for her or because of something that I wanted to do?  I left her and returned home after she rolled her eyes when I sat down intending to watch.  During the entire length of this rehearsal, I worried and stressed that I had done the wrong thing and M was going to hold this against me forever.  At 9p, when I picked her up, she jumped in the car, smiled and said, “That was way more fun than I thought.  Thanks for pushing me to do it.”
