Nativity Play in school…. Is this what every parent’s most awaited school event? Is it not exciting watching our little monkeys portray their respective roles on stage? I bet it is! Last Wednesday was Reimer’s Nativity Play in school. Am I thrilled? Oh absolutely!
Their play is entitled “A Little Bird Told Me” It was all about Robin, Dove and the little birds who were feeling cold and wanting to go somewhere south and warm. They’re discussing on how to travel to Bethlehem to see the birth of the special baby. Reimer was one of the little birds, so he had a lot of lines from start til finish, which surprised me as to why he was given such a role knowing how he can be inattentive sometimes.
I had arranged a time off work for that day so I can watch the play, I was rather more excited than him. The last time we watched him in a Nativity Play was on his first year in Nursery and he didn’t have any clue yet what they were doing as he was just mocking around that time while they were meant to be singing Christmas songs. This time, I’m expecting a much better behaved Reimer.
It started at 9:30 on Wednesday morning and despite of the heavy rain, I managed to battle it out. Went into their school hall together with the rest of the super excited Mums and Dads. Finally seated slightly closer to the stage, although their hall is not massive, so it didn’t make any difference anyway.
It started off with some Christmas songs sung by older pupils, then once they were done. All Primary 1 pupils then started entering the hall. Reimer was the first few ones who went in, he instantly saw me and started waving and smiling. He seemed very glad seeing me and even during the play he kept staring at me and making thumbs up every after his line. I don’t know what’s inside his mind that time.
The entire play was relatively well organized and went on pretty smoothly which was really impressive for Primary 1 students. They all looked so cute and adorable, the singing was just beautiful. On the other hand, I was stunned of how Reimer showed his confidence and boldness on the stage with his voice really loud and clear. He did mock around every now and then as he was distracted by my presence but he still managed to speak his lines when it was his turn which was unbelievable as he was not focusing attention. It was me who was so worried in case he would miss his lines and screw up everything but he didn’t. A little bit of acting could have been better but overall he simply shocked me by surprise.
Later on after the play, while I was busy taking photo of him, one Mum praised Reimer saying he was good. And on my way out, another Mum said that he was brilliant. I smiled at them and said thank you but deep in my heart, I’m bursting with pride. Reimer had made me proud.
How was your little ones Nativity Play in school?
