The Frog that became Cloverleaf
The Nativity Play
A couple of months after Cloverleaf started school, at 4 years of age, it was Christmas and time for the Nativity Play. This was my first experience of a school activity as a parent; I was pretty excited and nervous too!
This was a Nativity Play with a difference. It starred frogs. Now just what role they played in the birth of Jesus, after all these years I can’t just remember.
The first time you see your child upon stage is a proud one, as I am sure all parents that have experienced it will remember.
The Frog's Jump
The little frogs all dressed up in their costumes lined up across the stage and sang their song and ended the chorus with a leap forward.
Cloverleaf leapt higher and further than all the other frogs and almost landed up with the audience.
The audience cheered and applauded loudly as the Head teacher approached the stage.
“Well done everybody, but there was one little frog that jumped further than anyone” and she singled out Cloverleaf.
“We all want to see this little frog jump again don’t we?”
It was Cloverleaf’s moment, and she performed her leap again.
Tears of pride filled my eyes and rolled down my cheeks, everyone applauded, I didn’t care I was the only one giving her a standing ovation, I was so proud.
Here she is now many years later, pushing herself not only to succeed but to excel in all she does.
Congratulations, Cloverleaf, on completing the “30 Hubs in 30 Days Challenge” and also for writing 50 hubs in total.
Your hubs are a joy to read, your topics varied, interesting and well researched. Well done!
My darling daughter, you are very special. I know you always laugh at me when I tell you how proud I am, but you make me feel I’m the proudest Mum in the World.
I love you more than words can say, thank you for being you.
