St. Patrick’s Day Festivities–Slice of Life 17 Extra

Doing just fine

Today my oldest–who’s not that old–marched with his high school band in the NYC St. Patrick’s Day parade.

 

I worried about drunken crowds staggering into him on the end of the last row of the band.

I worried my husband wouldn’t find him through the crowds along 30+ blocks of the parade route after the band stepped off half an hour early.

I worried he’d be too cold, and his dress shoes would give him blisters.

I worried my mom wouldn’t find him after trekking to the city.

I worried the tuba, sorry–Souzaphone, was bigger than him and he’d get too tired before the end.

I’m a mom. It’s part of my job to worry.

But it sure feels great to see that he’s doing just fine!

  1. That’s a huge instrument to carry and play the whole parade. But he must have had a fantastic time. And yes, Moms always worry – no matter the age. Glad it went well.
