Children's play rehearsals are a lot different than adult play rehearsals. Someone starts crying or gets his or her feelings hurt on a weekly basis. If I raise my voice at someone they look like their spirits have been crushed forever and I have to do damage control. "I still love you. I just need you to focus. Can you do that for me?" Oy.
Sometimes I want to say, "Honey, what the heck is wrong with you? What are you nine?" And then I remember that, yep, they sure are. Oh the drama~
