Recital Anxiety

Hilde has her first violin concert next week. We both realized today that I am way more anxious than she is. I am worrying about all the details. Where is the rehearsal? Will it be odd because she is a home school kid playing in a Christian school’s concert? She has never played with a group of kids, will she be okay?

Hilde is not worrying. She has her music down, her teacher will be leading part of it and well she never gets nervous. I mean she really never gets nervous. She is my laid back, go with the flow girl. She prepares and she gets ready but she doesn’t over analyze. So, as we are driving away from the lesson and I am asking her for the fifth time if she is ready and she is rolling her eyes at me; I realize I am more asking more for me, than her.
I am not laid back and go with the flow. I tend to hyper focus and hyper analyze. My style is not helping anyone. Since I can’t talk Hilde into worrying, I figured I would be quiet for once and let her handle this; she seems to be doing pretty well on her own.

  1. I feel your pain. Sometimes I think I worry more over my kids' stuff than my own.
