Dirty Trick Free Zone: Episode #2 – Jill’s Own Toddler and Tiara Experience

May 17, 2010

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2nyHSQLHec]   This weekend my four-year old daughter, Carly, had her very first dance recital.  I was really apprehensive about the whole thing after hearing nightmarish stage mom stories and watching Toddlers and Tiaras.  I have to say, though, with the exception of a few difficult, frantic moms, the whole thing worked out well. 

Carly takes tap and jazz so she performed two dance numbers on the stage.  Once I checked my cynicism at the door, I realized that it is actually a great life lesson for these girls.  They have to get themselves ready, be on time and not be afraid to go on stage in front of a lot of people.  It’s great preparation for the real world.  In fact, it’s not too dissimilar to what I have to do each day.  I get up, put on work appropriate clothes, go to Key Hyundai and I have to “perform” in front of all our employees and customers in order to be successful.  I guess the moral of the story is to look to the positive in every situation and learn from whatever you are doing. 

My name is Jill Merriam, I am the mom to two great kids and the owner of Key Hyundai in Manchester, CT and Milford, CT.  You can learn more about us at http://keycars.com or http://jillforthepeople.com
