A Star is Born

Last week, my husband's coworker approached him about letting my youngest, Mia, be in the dealership's Christmas commercial. She really thought that she would be cute in it and wanted to know if we thought she could do it. Jason and I discussed it and told them that if she wanted to do it and wasn't scared or anything then we'd let her.

Yesterday we went to the dealership to film the commercial Mia is in. They wanted her dressed for the holiday and she looked so cute. We got there at about 11am and she had some time to explore the sales floor/show room while waiting for Santa and Mrs Claus to arrive.

Everyone that works there were just so sweet to her and made such a big deal over her. The woman that asked to put her in the commercial asked her if she'd sing a song; Mia did and damn near made me cry.

Mia stood in the middle of that room with all the sales people, the owner, customers and everyone and sung "When You Wish Upon a Star". But she performed. She sung out loud and clear and looked around at everyone watching her and just shocked the hell out of me. When she was done everyone clapped for her and I could barely breathe.

I only wish that I'd had my camera out for that moment, because it was so amazing how poised she was. After that everyone was asking about all the songs she sings and were making suggestions of songs for her to learn.

Not long after that the Claus's arrived and at first Mia was a little nervous around them but she quickly warmed up to Mrs Claus and before we knew it she was on Santa's lap.

She did really well for barely being three. I was so proud of her. The only part she had a problem with was the phrase "five hundred dollar gift card" at the end. (Heck even the adult that they filmed later couldn't spit it out right half the time. She told him "told you so!")

When she was done she got to have a happy meal while we watched them film the rest and then she was given her "monies" and a bag of gummy bears. After we left I took her to the store and she picked out a baby doll and bought Anakin and Claudia a little toy and still has a little money left over to put in her kitty bank.

She loved it, and talked about her adventure for the rest of the day. I can't wait for the first time she sees herself on television.
And for some added fun, here she is rehearsing her lines for the first time with Santa.

AMAZING! Sounds like her beginning as a super star! That's great that she sang! I would have cried too!

About Me

My photo
I'm a SAHM that loves photography. My kids are my main models but they're on to me and have started running in the opposite direction of me and my camera. Well, all but the youngest. She's a ham. To compensate I take pictures of just about everything else from flowers and bugs, to landscapes and anything else that will sit still. And I share it all here because I might as well do something with it. :)
