In Season 6 of Supernatural Dean surprises his brother, Sam, early in the season with a sudden paternal side that emerges when the two brothers investigate a case of missing babies. Given the scenario that sometimes our loved ones can shock us with a certain skill or quality we didn’t expect from them considering their personality, I’m going to share a blog post today answering the following question:
What’s the most surprising skill a loved one has surprised you with? Did it end up making sense given their personality?
My oldest daughter, T, has massive stage freight. She has trouble speaking in front of class and gets embarrassed when being put in spotlight at all. She’ll either turn instantly bright red or as white as a ghost. She also gets sick to her stomach. I’ll never forget the time we met Miranda Cosgrove backstage after a concert and were given the chance to interview her. T couldn’t even ask a question and stuttered when trying to compliment her. The whole way home she was still shaking. We can laugh about it together and she is even okay with the fact I tease her sometimes about how she freezes up but the truth is I feel sorry for her nervousness. It’s no fun at all.
Given T’s personality it comes as no surprise that I was shocked at how well she did at Color Guard in Junior Cadet Corps. She loves JCC and being part of a team. Color Guard means a lot to her and she has no problem getting up on stage. She has even went to more than one competition. She also carried the flag and marched in front of her whole school last year. I was impressed.
I guess it just goes to show if you truly love something you can overcome your fears. I’m a proud momma!
