Friday night, I was beaming with pride as my little Moo, ever so nervous, took to the stage in her first big role debuting as Toto in The Wizard Of Oz!
Nervously turning her earring and smiling at the crowd, she was determined to be the best little Toto she could!
Amongst all the butterflies, we noticed she’d completely forgotten to take off her bright purple sunglasses!
Later we told her it made Toto the coolest dog in town!
As the play went along I saw her nerves disappear and her confidence grow as she let out each ruff, ruff and performed alongside her cast mates!
I chuckled along with the crowd and snapped pictures as cows swirled around her head during the tornado scene.
My heart melted as I watched her sing “we’re off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of oz!” and skip down the yellow brick road with her friends!
On the second night, as she entered the stage, she wasn’t nearly as nervous as she had been on opening night! She had a beautiful confidence about her and I felt a lump in my throat as she turned and gave me a thumbs up in the middle of the play!
Well done Meg, well done! There aren’t enough words to express how proud I am of you!

Awww-I think the purple sunglasses rock! She made it her own. The song you picked is perfect.
Bravo! Bravo!…..I was going to go and completely forgot about it Kirsten! I wish you had called and reminded me dangit! I have to place blame somewhere…lol. Did anyone video tape it??
Yes! I will be getting a copy as soon as they let me know they’re ready for purchase! You can come share a bowl of popcorn with me and watch it! 😉
Awwww! That gave me gooseumps! The song did, too… 😉 Before I read the text part, I noticed the purple sunglasses – and thought it just made her the coolest Toto ever! 😉 I thought Katherine McPhee did such a great job on this song – it’s one of my favorites of hers. Great choice! 🙂

That is such a proud moment!
I love the photos and glad you all had a lovely time.
Love the song choice!
She was the best toto I’ve ever seen. Just too cute. As far as the video Katherine McPhee’s version was right up there with Judy Garland I’ll tell you. It has to be the best performance on American Idol to date. I love it. Thanks for sharing with us and joining us with your little Toto and your pride of joy.
Love the sunglasses. She’s too cute for words 🙂
Katherine McPhee really did a fabulous job on Over the Rainbow – one of the best ever! Your daughter looks adorable. What fun memories she’s gonna have with such great Kodak moments you caught. Thanks for linking up and sharing. Next week bring a friend with you so we can grow this dance party to mega proportion!

What a cute talented girl you have and very pretty too. Katherine McPhee’s version of Over the Rainbow is gorgeous.
How totally adorable, and I agree that the purple sunglasses make the outfit.
They grow up so fast, she’ll be on broadway any day. =)
Love the song you picked, to honor you little bug.
I am so glad I was there – she did AWESOME!!!!
