I mean of course I am her mom. But, I was asked to play the mom in the movie. There are only 2 scenes I am in, and I don’t have oodles of lines, but I have enough! I am literally cramming for this and looking over at my lines on the regular. My daughter has looked at her lines maybe 4 times, and is not sweating it one bit. What is it about being a child gives us this crazy confidence? I truly never had a lot of it to begin with, but in some areas of my life I have even less. There are some areas of my life, that I am queen of, like taking care of business or standing up for myself. But being on display on demand, frightens me big time. Even though it was a childhood dream to act.
We were on set on Sunday, and I realized how many people stand around and watch when a film is being made. This film is small, so there were only maybe 10. Now I am thinking, how in the heck can I get up with those lights and people watching me!? Whether I think that I can or not, I am doing it because I am a woman of my word and I cannot let my kiddo down. Please say prayers, cross fingers, send good vibes for me. I really need all of the help I can get!
PS It is raining. So all is right in our world. And it is in the high 60’s here. LOVING IT:)
