Thirteen Thursday 7

Thirteen Things about Preschool Children and Their Christmas Program

1. There's always at least one who crys.

2. There's always one who sings so loud they are screaming.

3. There's always an escape artist running off the stage.

4. When the escape artist is put back on stage they run from one side of the stage to the other while the others are singing. He's trying to find another way out.

5. The children all know the hand gestures to the songs, their timing is usually a little off.

6. The dancing is adorable!

7. The children are bursting with pride when they are done.

8. Mom has cried at least once while watching.

9. At least one parent has ruined a part of your video by standing up in front of you and not moving out of the way.

10. The teachers always put hours and hours of work into these programs that last 30 minutes.

11. If you have to save all year for 1/2 day sick or personal time for this event, it is sooooo worth it.

12. There's never enough parking or seating for all the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends that want to see this special event, but we all manage to squeeze in somehow. (There was a whole street of cars that got a parking ticket because the meters only have 1 hr of time. Ours was one of them. It's the best $10.oo show I've ever attended!)

13. Every parent thinks their child is by far the cutest one there. How is it possible that our children out cute every other child everytime?

Can't wait to see my girls do this in a few years.

I was the loud one back then...wait, I still am!

Have a happy Thursday!

Oh, SO right on! Thankfully, both my kids are great big hams and not escape artists, screamers, or criers.

You really nailed the event perfectly.
