Today has been a brilliant day, it was Cameron’s first Nativity.
I think I was more nervous than Cameron today. Cameron was very excited and showed this by humming excitedly all morning.
I was nervous for him, nervous that he really wouldn’t understand what was going on, nervous that he would get upset being in a room full of people who he didn’t know. Nervous that other parents would judge him for his humming.
As you are aware Cameron at this stage is practically non verbal. You can read more about Cameron in my first ever blog post.
Matt, Matt’s Nan and I went to watch him at the local church.
Cameron was absolutely brilliant and did a lot better than I thought he would.
He didn’t sing the songs, but he sat there good as gold. However he did the actions to the songs.
After a while, Cameron lost interest and was more interested in the fact that he didn’t have trousers on. He kept lifting up his outfit and flashing the audience his nappy.
It didn’t matter that he couldn’t talk. It didn’t matter that he didn’t have a ‘proper’ role. I am so proud of him and just seeing him sat up on the stage with all the children brought a tear to my eye.
