Well, I have to confess I was slightly skeptical about the JB concert.
But, it was AH-MAZING–I mean fireworks, lasers, robotic moving stages, video screens, wardrobe changes, back-up dancers! Some of you are thinking, Well if he was really all that talented, he wouldn’t need all of that FLASH. But, I mean the kid plays the drums, piano, and can really sing and dance!
I’m acting like I didn’t know all of that already, but I will confess that I learned all about him when I saw Never Say Never in 3D (I’m a closeted fan. Or a not-so-closeted fan)…The greatest part of the concert was watching my goddaughter unashamedly sing her guts out, dance her face off, do hand-motions, and enjoy every moment. She didn’t care what anyone thought of her–pure presentness, joy, and good old fashioned first concert fun. I remember seeing MC Hammer, Boys II Men, Whitney Houston, and Kenny G (?!) and feeling the same way.
I am going to proudly (swaggily) sport my gold tennis shoe JB keychain as a reminder to live shamelessly like my awesome goddaughter!
Here is our advice from some amazing 60-something women, who I know would have danced their butts off at the concert too!
At that time my goal was his happiness, and comfort. Now that I am older, I think I should have kept an eye more on what would’ve helped develop his character (even if it wasn’t so comfortable or happy at the moment). I think moms in general go for making everyone happy, but character is sooooo important.
