Sing Along

07-12-13 Sing Along

Beetle‘s school (yeah, Mommy‘s too) had a sing along this evening. It wasn’t all holiday songs, but there were a few.

We gathered in the all-purpose room where there were several large rugs spread about. The early attendants shunned these in favor of chairs. We took our spot on a rug next to Beetle’s teacher, Mrs. O’Toole, her husband, and her one-year old son. Fritz was very jolly while Beetle was shy and reserved. She sat on my lap. Even when the festivities began, she wouldn’t get up and dance. 🙁

After a few songs, however, things began to change. One of her classmates, Jayme, sat down near us and soon everything changed. Beetle showed us a peek at what life has in store for us. She is a ring-leader. Beetle, Jayme, and another friend showed off for the entire group as they danced about. The frolicking escapade was quite a sight! Beetle is so cute when she dances.

The singing eventually ended and then the meltdown occurred. Jayme ended up with a lighted Rudolph nose and Beetle wanted one too. Mommy has one for her, but it was not available. All the way out to the car and all the way home and all the way to bed, Beetle whined and cried for her nose. Sing alongs for three-year olds should not last into the evening. Fritz just looked on bemused at his hysterical sister.

Also blogged on this date . . .

  1. Christmas outfits are so special. I remember when I used to buy each of my kids a new outfit for pictures & festivities. I don’t do that anymore but I’m sure they would like it…but THEY’D want want to make the selections. Believe me, Parker’s would be ODD. He does NOT like to conform…but I make him comb his hair at least once a week for church…hee hee.

    Beetle looks adorable in her sweater and black shoes. They coordinate so well with her holiday red dress. She’s all set for the season. And I REALLY like the sweater you have for Fritz. It’s so classic. Dad used to have one like it.

    As I’ve said before, I love Fritz’s cap. It’s so cute – and functional too. I wore a LONG stocking cap last night for our party and Parker has an assorment of crazy caps so maybe Fritz will continue to wear toppers for all sorts of occasions.
