Apparently yesterday was National Daughter's Day. Though I didn't know that the day was still pretty special! I happen to have two wonderful girls that I am proud of. Khari, my almost 13-year-old, is so talented. She does it all. From playing the saxophone to the piano, dancing, and step team. Not to mention she does a great job and is creative when it comes to nails.
She had the pleasure of going to see Arianna Grande in concert, VIP style with some friends. I am so glad to be able to provide her these types of opportunities and look forward to providing more meaningful experiences. I was about her age when I went to my first concert. It was Immature. I remember Shyheim was there too, and that is when I fell in love with his music. I still listen to those artists to this day.
Savvi is spent time with her Grandparents while Kaylah and I were at the arena.
She had a bit of freedom since they were in a suite. I decided to let her enjoy the experience with her friends. I trust her and knew they were in good hands. That gave me some quiet time! he PNC Arena has a Quiet Room where parents can wait while their child attends the concert. I didn't know this before, but I was so grateful to them for letting me be there. I enjoyed being in this awesome Quiet Room designated for parents (of teeny boppers that didn't want to deal with the cheering and sweaty young people). I got to watch a little Scandal that was pretty cool. As I sat there typing and working on my writing felt so adult, like a real Mommy.
I know that Kaylah had the time of her life. I am an Arianna fan also and I appreciate that she is an entertainer I can listen to with my daughter and not worry about the content. I pray she doesn't go Miley on us. Having a little baby and an almost Teen changed my perspective so much. It makes me remember that Khari is still growing and developing. It seems like just yesterday she was a baby, and now she is growing into this smart & talented, beautiful & funny young lady.
We have a unique relationship and I trust that she would come to me with any concern. I am a proud mother today and every other day. Opportunities like this allow me to celebrate her and reward her for being dope like her Momma. Being in this arena, even though I'm not directly taking part in the concert is so exciting! I haven't been to a concert since 2000! It is a reminder that I still need to live and experience life with my girls!
